Motivational speaker, adventure seeker, and coach who has raced triathlons worldwide. Luke Tyburski has pushed himself to extreme limits, in fact well past where his body could thrive. This interview shows us the limits we can push ourselves to but also shows us the importance of self-care and dealing with the issues that face us that stand in the way of our full potential.
Luke is real and honest with us about the demons he faced, and what he had to do in order to heal his body. We discuss how looking at the big picture and that our lives are more than our sport and that balance is important in everything we do is what should drive us. But also that we should not limit ourselves and instead look to what is possible and how we can try to achieve dreams.
Luke Tyburski is an Ultra Runner, Coach, and Motivational Speaker who undertook a 2000KM, 12 day cross-continental Ultimate Triathlon that he designed himself in 2015. Luke is always up for an adventure, and has done things like race down Mt Everest, learned to surf, ran (literally for his life) on an island in the South China Sea after a typhoon, and the Marathon de Sables. Luke grew up in a small Australian town where he dreamed of playing professional football (aka soccer for those of us in the US) and then achieved that dream. Luke hosts the Kinetic Revolution Train Smarter Podcast.
I thought people who did half marathons were crazy and those who did full marathons were just on a death wish, people who do it are just nuts. And then my friend told me about this race in the Sahara Desert…..Marathon de Sables.
I believe there is no one else that is mentally tougher than I am. I believe I am the toughest person in the world.
Reflect on what went wrong and what you can do to fix it so you don’t make the same mistake twice.
I realized the potential I had as a runner. if I opened my mind to what I was truly capable of, what else could I achieve.
