    Redefining boundaries: A journey into the depths of resilience and valor

    When Ross Edgley embarked on his monumental journey of swimming around Great Britain, he was fueled by a desire to rediscover human resilience and valor. This venture was a tribute to Captain Matthew Webb, the first to swim the English Channel in 1875, embodying Victorian grit and defiance. Edgley aimed to show that, like our ancestors, we are capable of overcoming formidable challenges.

    Edgley’s journey, spanning 1,780 miles, was not just against the unpredictable wrath of the sea – it was also against skepticism about his ability to conquer established sports science norms. His physique, atypical for a long-distance swimmer, was perceived as a disadvantage. But Edgley saw his robust build as a wellspring of resilience, essential for such a daunting undertaking. He sought to defy the skepticism of many, including those who doubted he would pass the 100-mile mark.

    Edgley started the swim powerfully, covering 21 miles in under 9 hours. He knew, however, that his journey would require repeating this effort approximately 100 times. The relentless sea had begun to imprint its toll on his mind and body, whispering fatigue and testing his endurance with every wave. Beating this fatigue would also be a mental battle, and Edgley recognized that he needed to train his mind to push beyond its self-imposed limits.

    Following Professor Tim Noakes’s Central Governor theory, which posits the brain limits the body to maintain homeostasis, Edgley trained his mind to extend these limits – and allowed his body to push past his brain's protective barriers. He adopted a philosophy he called “Stoic Sports Science,” which draws on the US Navy Seals’ 40 percent rule to overcome fatigue. At the brink of exhaustion, the rule says, an untouched reserve of about 40 percent still remains.

    In the face of impossibility and the rage of the seas, Edgley swam with the spirit of ancient warriors and the wisdom of modern science. But what did he learn from this experience? That’s what we’ll explore next.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
