Imagine working for 12 hours a day in a place where the temperature is down to -40 degrees - twice as cold as your freezer. Imagine skiing uphill, into the wind, for 46 days pulling an 80kg sledge. Add to that a severe and very painful cold injury to both legs from Day 7.
If anyone knows about mental toughness - I do. I have learned resilience first hand and understand how to perform enduringly in the toughest of conditions. From Skiing to the South Pole to Yacht Racing around the world, I have learned how to thrive in hugely challenging circumstances.
