Travis Macy summited glacial peaks in the French Alps, rappelled into vast limestone caves in China, and ran through parched deserts in Utah. Most famously, he won one of the country's marquee ultra-distance events: Leadman, a high-altitude series of super-long-distance races, culminating with a 100-mile mountain biking race and a 100-mile trail run.

    This is a good book, or an OK book. I would have given it a 3.5 if I could. The reason it is not a great book is that it is a little lost between trying to help people who aspire to run ultra distances and everyone else. What Trevor Macy is trying to do is admirable and his book is more connected and readable than many of the books written by athletes. Maybe because he is also an English teacher. But the difficulty is that it doesn't quite serve any of the two purposes as it should. As someone w This is a good book, or an OK book. I would have given it a 3.5 if I could.

But the difficulty is that it doesn't quite serve any of the two purposes as it should. As someone who is preparing to run an ultra, I am interested in knowing more about all its aspects, the physical and mental. I got a reasonable dose of the mental side here although the book gives no value on the training or gear side in any way. What perplexed me was the effort Macy put into applying some principles he distiller from his ultra endurance (and work and parenting) into advising on everyday life issues, it somehow works but not quite. He has put together a set of principles and talked about them categorically including having exercises to do to apply them in the end of each chapter in a true self-help way. I don't much like that as I don't like the self help texts I came across. I would have preferred a more subtle tone, say that of Scott Jurek in Eat and Run for example. The difficult part for the book would be that if it is not directly addressed at the dilemmas of ultra endurance aspirants, would a "normal" person pick a book that has a running athlete on the cover and is called the ultra mindset to help them solve their career or parenting problems? I would love to read a more technical book by Macy, he's a tremendous athlete that would have treasures for other ultra aspirants.

    This is a great book! Enjoyable and useful. The Ultra Mindsets that Macy describes are useful for endurance athletes, but also useful for anyone looking to maximize their personal potential.

    This is a good book but not a great one. Macy spends a good bit of time on race memoirs to illustrate each of the aspects of the ultra mindset that he is attempting to communicate. Many times the anecdotes did not fit nicely into the principle being explained and it felt forced. That said when Macy got it right he did it very well. The exercises at the end of each chapter are extremely valuable and will be useful for a long time.

There are far better books on the mental aspect of endurance sports (see Matt Fitzgerald's work) and better books on goal setting and dealing with everyday stress. Macy falls in the middle of this and like many books trying to do too many things it's merely and okay effort.

    2.5 I recommend just listening to the URP podcast about the book instead of reading it. Gasp, I know. In the podcast the author is more likable. There weren't any big novel ideas in the book, it didn't pull from ultrarunning science as much as I thought it would / would have liked given the title, and I felt that the author's personal story sections got insufferable. I was looking more for an educational / self help style book than the "I'm awesome" autobiography that this is.

    First off, though I'm a runner, I'm far from an ultra runner, but every year I go farther than I thought I could go the previous year. I really wanted to love and be inspired by this book. I was only a little inspired. I did enjoy the racing stories, especially the one about Travis' dad. It had compassion and drama and I thought, "Man! This is going to be a great book!" I also loved the story near the end where Travis was competing in the same race that watched his dad suffer through as a kid.

I also loved the story near the end where Travis was competing in the same race that watched his dad suffer through as a kid. When he compares the ultra mindset from racing to real life, that's when it falls apart for me. The stories sounded emotionless, and though his thought process got him to achieve his goals, I think that with most mere mortals, emotions play such a huge role in decision making that using that thought process might simply be too difficult. I'm working on it, though, and if I do master it, I might need to edit this review. As someone who suffers from anxiety, I thought this book might not only inspire me to run more (which it did) but also help me conquer my irrational fears. I guess one out of two isn't bad. I also think that if you have normal fears (as opposed to anxiety fueled irrational ones), this might help you along as well.

    An opening chapter of this book throws us directly into a race, where Travis Macy is battling in a second place behind frenchman Francois d'Haene in an ultra race in French Alps called Ice Trail Tarentaise.

Even though I've never heard of Travis as an athlete before, this introduction gives a lot of credibility to this book for everyone interested in ultra endurance events. Travis shares with us his coping mechanisms, so if you are curious to know what goes in the mind of endurance athlete during the most challenging moments of his races - that's a great book to read. I have especially enjoyed hearing stories of his multi sports endurance challenges, adventure races etc. "Remember, in the end that's a great psychological training" - that's one of those 8 core principles he talks about in this book. I give Ultra Mindset only three starts, simply because Travis is trying to appeal to a broader audience and market his ideas as a self-help book. I'd rather take it for what it is - an autobiography of talented and competitive endurance athlete.

    A great book for athletes and anyone who is looking to up their mental game. Macy presents a series of tactics, a chapter for each, with some exercises at the end of the chapter to help get you thinking about how it might work for you and in what situations and to help you set goals. I found them all really useful and have even used a few successfully in bike races and hard workouts since finishing the book. Macy sets up each tactic with a personal story of his own from his many adventure races. A great book for athletes and anyone who is looking to up their mental game.

    This is one of those running books that applies to your running and all other aspects of your life. The stories that Travis shares, along with the core principles will change how you tackle the "impossible."

    Urgh. Way too much testosterone for me; I cannot abide all this alpha male posturing. It is quite possible to talk about your own outstanding achievements without turning it into a bragfest - just look at Scott Jurek. Or Charlie Engels. Or Catra Corbett. Or Adharanand Finn. Or - but you get my meaning.

Have an ego and use it, until it’s time to put your ego aside Ego should be used to bolster your own drive and confidence. It should never be about comparing yourself to others. 5. Think about your thinking: what and why Begin races focused on your what and turn to your why when the going gets tough. what = the mechanics of your plan, including pacing, effort, nutrition and hydration, gear, etc. - you have to develop this plan well in advance of your race. why = the motivators and goals you’ve set for this race - you have to have a deep understanding of these long before your race. 6. The 4:30 am rule: when you have no choice, anything is possible Plan your work, then work your plan…when you’ve made a choice, see it through by putting aside any possibility of changing your mind (like getting up at 4:30 am to go for your run). 7. Bad stories, good stories: the ones you tell yourself make all the difference Practice reframing and rewording your experience of all situations and circumstances in a positive tone. 8. Never quit, except when you should quit It's okay to stop when it is the smart thing to do, such as when continuing would put your safety or health in jeopardy. Otherwise, keep going.

Compelling narratives provide a rare degree of insight to the world of ultra-running and adventure racing, highlighting internal and external challenges and extracting key lessons gleaned from adversity. By enumerating the items in the successful toolkit--both those found and those that Macy himself found lacking from time to time--the book manages to approach a career of high achievement with an endearing humility and humanity that I can't praise highly enough. Adding to that sense of humility is the degree of openness which Macy provides. Not being too familiar with self-help titles, I was slightly put-off by the 'worksheets' Macy provides at the end of each chapter until I realized that Macy actually shares his own answers to every question he asks of the reader. That openness makes the dialogue much more of a conversation than a self-help workbook and the approach is commendable. If anyone is in search of a title that will inspire, entertain and humble, all while providing new perspectives on the challenges and experiences that compose our lives, I would suggest finding a copy and giving it a go. Hat's off to Travis Macy for translating his experiences into an avenue for helping others.

Impressive though the journey Macy has been through, his website looks interesting to find more about his many achievements.

Psychology is a fascinating to me, and to fulfill my satisfaction, Macy could have gone much further in exploring the unavoidable physiological/mental connections that cultivate success. To me, the mind & body are not separable and so, the physical training and diet cannot be ignored on this subject.

    At first I wasn't exactly sure if I'd find anything new in The Ultra Mindset. I think the key point here is that whilst the ideas within might not be new, the key to success with writing such as this, is that it gets us to think in new (and personally applicable ways) about what we're reading.

    I really enjoyed how the author blended his stories with success at Ultras with common sense advice on how the rest of us average folk can achieve our own goals. With these these kinds of books you never know if they are just going to be self-promoting crap about how great they are. I didn't think the author did any of that. I liked the stories he told about his races, including the ones he made costly mistakes in. It definitely baffles the brain how athletes like him can go for a hundred miles I really enjoyed how the author blended his stories with success at Ultras with common sense advice on how the rest of us average folk can achieve our own goals.

    Good read, good points on how to improve when you start struggling on your long distance training. Problem is that Travis is such a hardcore ultra athlete, that your own suffering even when training for short distance might seem too small to complain and this is slightly demotivating. I mean it is painful to run for 3 hours + and Travis throughout the book is telling the stories how he ran, swam, cycled and paddled hundreds and hundreds of hours and miles. Overall I am satisfied with the book :)

    A solid book about ultra running and life. The author talks about a range of adventure sports and isn't limited to running which is a nice change of pace. There are a lot of pointers about both running, and life, in which you just keep going. The stories were well told but, not next level material. The feats themselves were incredible but a little more detail would have helped readers connect better.

    It will be impossible for me to write a completely objective review of this book, as the author is a former colleague. I really enjoyed reading about his adventures as an ultra adventure athlete. While I typically don't gravitate toward the "self help" genre, those aspects of the book weren't too hokey - in fact, they were quite helpful for some of the internal conversations I've been having lately.

    I had one big takeaway from this book and that is all I could ask for. It was focusing on the "what or the why" of training or anything in life. In general I found the book rather tedious to be honest but there were moments I was very interested. It was kind of hit and miss. The efforts at relating endurance sports to life and work sometimes worked and others didn't. Definitely a book aimed at the entrepreneurial person that loves endurance sport.

    I enjoyed the content, and Travis obviously has plenty of experiences that have helped him shape and utilize his strategies. I enjoyed the tables, practical examples, and "back stage passes" to the races of which he was part. It was a little preachy, and I felt that the "everyday" life examples of a non-athletic person using these skills a bit far-fetched. Almost all examples were of races, apart from Travis' personal examples at the end of each section.

    I found this book to be very useful as I prepared for my first ultra marathon (50 miles of trails). Though the book is about much more than ultra running - it is about using your mind to achieve your goals - getting out of your comfort zone and looking at all of our experiences as a form of mental training. "There are no bad experiences." Highly recommend this book. I found this book to be very useful as I prepared for my first ultra marathon (50 miles of trails).

    I liked this a lot -- kind of a cross between an extreme adventure story and a self-help book. My only criticism (not the book's fault) was that I listened to the audio book so now I need to go back and re-listen to the ends of each chapter to review the principles. Engaging listen and I learned way more about adventure endurance sports events than I ever thought I would.
