Nobody achieved their goal.

This podcast had potential. COVID-19 obviously had an impact, but I thought at least one of them would’ve run a marathon by themselves on the date that was originally set. I thought it was pretty weak minded of them tbh. Nothing against Middleton though, I thought he did a good job with what he had to work with.

Great motivator and that is not there to blow smoke.

As ex military member I’ve found Ant to be a great writer. In a way that non military people can understand, even though he holds back on physical and mental strain that he has had to endure on top of professionals pushing mind and body well past its limits. Where there is no chance of finishing if you allow the thinking patterns to take control of your actions. Great person to have as a guide for an event requiring preparation and performance. As you can be your worst enemy at even the smallest feeling of pain or questioning yourself. Many events are designed to not be possible to win or finish, as learning that failure or circumstance is best learnt before it happens. Letting the mind and body improvise adapt and overcome to achieve the end goal.

As disappointing as his views on Coronavirus

The guy is an idiot and I refuse to give my time, money or attention to him ever again

Idiot

Ant Middleton is a grade A idiot and should hang his head in shame for his COVID video.

Be inspired!

Just finished listening to this pod cast. Very inspiring. It's really made me think that I've got to set myself a challenge like this. I wish all the participants the best of luck. 👍😉

Terrible

Not a podcast just the audio of him coaching a group of people wanting to run a marathon. Lots of sending people off to run 1km and then the audio cuts off and then people return out of breath. Not inspiring in anyway. Pleased I listened to this before I bought his book.

Bad people give bad advice

Utterly disappointed Audible keep this title available. His irresponsible reaction to Covid 19 proved again he is not to be trusted. This individual was jailed for assaulting a female police officer. Be careful who you hold as role models
