Endurance: Jasmin Paris

How to develop your endurance with record breaking ultra-marathon champion Jasmin Paris

Endurance is defined as the ability to endure an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way. Keeping on going, when the going gets tough basically. This week on DTMTS, Simon Mundie sits down with British ultrarunner Jasmin Paris to discuss endurance. Jasmin won the 268 mile Spine race, widely regarded as one of the toughest endurance races in the world and described as the ultimate challenge of physical resilience and mental fortitude. Jasmin became not only the first woman to win the race outright, she also smashed the men’s course record by a staggering 12 hours. As if that wasn't remarkable enough, she posted her record time whilst also expressing milk for her 14 month old daughter Rowan. It was a truly astonighing feat in what is Britain’s most brutal running race. Jasmin juggles her running with raising a young daughter as well as being a vet, so she has mastered the art of prioritising what is important in life. She is a great believer in balance in life however, so cake and wine are never entirely shunned. Jasmin also emphasises the importance of chunking big projects down into manageable bite size chunks, loving what you do and following your instincts and intuition. Jasmin also hopes her example will inspire women everywhere to believe anything is possible.
