In Part 1 you heard about the Ironman Athlete and Doctor,
Mitch Anderson and his incredible career.
Now comes the rollercoaster part of the story.
What does it take physically to be able to ride at high speed for 12 hours straight?
And then a year later attempt the 24 hour record?
What does it take mentally? Knowing what you're doing to your body...
In Part 2 Mitch dives deep into:
- The mindset needed to attempt this record
- The physical toll it took on his body (heart failure, kidney failure, insomnia to name a few)
- The psychological toll it took that affected him for months
- His battles with depression
And mostly, just how f*cking hard it was!
This part of the story will leave you speechless with your jaw on the floor.
Mitch's raw honesty and insight made this an incredibly valuable episode, so we thank him for holding nothing back and opening up on his highest highs and lowest lows not just in his performances, but in his life.
