Episode #8: Hospitalised during his first ultra-marathon

While at his son’s first birthday, a couple of beverages down, Alex Whitlock was approached by a friend and asked to play rugby. He agreed, but only a few games later with broken ribs did he decide that rugby may not be his calling. Instead, it was the running during the games that he was enjoying.

In this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, Alex joins host James Mitchell to share how he has found a love for running, recounting on his first long distance run, a race that ended in an ambulance on route to a Hong Kong hospital.

Alex shares how his training regime has changed, the successes he has since had within the sport, and reflects on how an injury set him back but a shift in mindset got him back on track. He discusses the psychological benefits of running and how it has helped him to alter his inner voice to one of encouragement.
