2013, first edition, 272 pages. 8 x 5. 2 x 07 in.  . Endurance, hutchinson writes, is “the struggle to continue against a mounting desire to stop”—and we’re always capable of pushing a little farther. Isbn: 9780307266309. This means the mind is the new frontier of endurance—and that the horizons of performance are much more elastic than we once thought.

Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance #ad - But, of course, it’s not “all in your head. For each of the physical limits that hutchinson explores—pain, oxygen, muscle, heat, thirst, fuel—he carefully disentangles the delicate interplay of mind and body by telling the riveting stories of men and women who’ve pushed their own limits in extraordinary ways.

The longtime “sweat science” columnist for outside and runner’s world, Hutchinson, a former national-team long-distance runner and Cambridge-trained physicist, was one of only two reporters granted access to Nike’s top-secret training project to break the two-hour marathon barrier, an extreme quest he traces throughout the book.
