James Cracknell's Marathon Des Sable
A fabulous documentary that shows the challenge of managing heat stress. It shows
the mental and physical challenges that this involves. James tests out the drinks and
nutrition and the psychology of how diet influences performance is very interesting.
Youtube and social media are fabulous ways of sharing information. There are so many fabulous clips and programmes available. The only thing I find it knowing
whether they are any good. And so what I have done is selected a few videos, and provided a brief comment on why this is useful.

If you know of good videos, then get in touch. Use the link to share your ideas and we can discuss it further.
