Extreme endurance adventurer Sean Conway is the first and only man in history to cycle, swim and run the length of Britain.
In 2015, Sean cycled 3,350 miles from Lulworth Cove to Scarborough on a bamboo bike. At Scarborough, Sean swapped his bike for running shoes and took 1.5 million steps to Brighton, where he did his final leg - a 390,000 stroke swim, across two intensive weeks, all the way back to where he started. The self-supported, 4000+ mile, continuous Ultra Triathlon was filmed by the Discovery Chanel and propelled Sean into the record books.
In this episode of the podcast Sean explains how he became an ‘adventurer’, how he remains focussed when competing, why he thinks high risk goals lead to success, how to make sure failure isn’t an option and why accountability and proving the naysayers wrong fuels his motivation. This is a memorable and entertaining episode and Sean’s message is powerful and provides a recipe for positive attitude and coping with setbacks. .
