Publisher's Summary

Training your body for a marathon is tough. Training your mind is even harder.

Unless you have Ant Middleton as your mentor....

The former special forces soldier, and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins, has recruited five first-time Virgin Money London Marathon runners who have recently faced-up to a variety of mental health challenges.

Supported by elite marathon runner Mara Yamauchi and sports psychologist Dr Josephine Perry, Ant is on hand to help them battle through their self-doubt, anxiety and fears, can they overcome their psychological barriers to reach the finish line? 

A TBI Media production for Audible Originals.

This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. New episodes will arrive in your Library fortnightly, on a Thursday.

If you or someone you know is affected by any of the issues mentioned in this podcast, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.

20 April 2020 Update: As the Virgin Money London Marathon has been postponed, unfortunately so too will our final episode of Mind Over Muscle. We look forward to recording the final episode at a postponed date and will update this product page when we can confirm a release date.

Mind Over Muscle won't protect me from Covid-19.

After seeing this man declare that he doesn't care about the thousands, if not millions of people who are at risk of death or serious complications from the current global pandemic, seeing this appear in my recommendations made me feel sick and angry.

YOU might not be at risk of the more serious symptoms, but there are plenty of people around you with asthma, using immunosuppressive therapies for autoimmune diseases, chemotherapy for cancer, and so many others. If you can't care about others at a time like this then I can't take any of your advice seriously.

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

Lost Respect

Deleted this from my device as I lost all respect for this man over his views on the virus. He may be fit & healthy but my 80 year old parents are not and encouraging selfish behaviour puts them at risk.

Only one episode?

I downloaded this podcast and there was only one episode?

I absolutely love Ant and the work that he does and so was hoping for the whole series? :(

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. 👍😉

Want to listen to more

Really facinating! I'm not a runner but am training for a week long walk and in the past I have a track record of giving up when things get hard so I cannot wait to hear more of the psychological methods behind how to keep going when things get tough. Tha k you for making this 😁
