In this episode of the Warrior Mind Podcast I interview Luke Tyburski. Luke is an Endurance Adventurer, Health & Wellness Coach, Motivational Speaker, and suffered from depression.
In Luke’s’ Words:
“I live my life completing out of this world endurance feats, documenting them, and sharing my stories through different media avenues; all in the hope to inspire others to live their life every single day. But, my life hasn’t always been mountain tops, and exotic locations…
For the past six years, I’ve (knowingly) suffered from depression, and hid it away until only recently.
I was unable to work (I was a footballer) due to injuries I had sustained, and these injuries continued to push me further and further into the firm grips of my mental health illness.
Days, weeks, and months went by without any recognition of the interaction I had with others, and would feel exhausted, helpless, drained, and fatigued; unable to leave the confines of my “haven” which was my bedroom. I had many self-harming, and suicidal thoughts; my life was very dark, I told no one!
After retiring from football, I (without thinking) signed up to a 155-mile ultra-marathon race in the Sahara Desert (The Marathon des Sables), I completed this event and felt alive for the first time in years.
From that day on, I decided to dedicate my life to pushing the boundaries of my physical and mental realms, while inspiring others to live their own lives…
Enjoy this podcast interview with Luke Tyburski.
…As I have experienced what not living life looks like, I aim to be a beacon for others who not only are “stuck in a rut” of life, but for those who suffer from a mental health illness, and show them through my own story that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and we are all capable to achieve what we deem at times is, well, unachievable.
I hope to inspire and empower those who suffer in silence to look within to find the courage they have to deal with daily life, speak to someone, and know that we all can live life to its fullest while dealing with mental health illnesses.
After The Marathon des Sables I continued on my adventurous with numerous challenges, some of my favorites are, cycling 412kms in a day to Newquay in England form London, just to learn how to surf the following day, spending six weeks with some Nepalese ultra-runners high up in their mountainous homes, before trekking to Everest Basecamp to run the world’s highest ultra-marathon, The Everest Ultra.
I ran for “my survival” through a Chinese forest without food, water, or money, and with a plane to catch. I then attempted to summit the 2nd highest mountain in New Zealand, just for something different!
I became a triathlete after crossing the finishing line of the 280-mile-long Double Brutal Extreme Triathlon in North Wales, it wasn’t flat, and took me 35 hours non-stop.
I recently completed my latest big challenge, The Ultimate Triathlon (UT). The UT was a unique, never before attempted challenge, covering 2000kms in 12 days from Morocco to Monaco.
I had an independent film maker follow me throughout this challenge, and a documentary will be released this September, with potential screenings in London, Sydney, and LA.
Here are a few short videos.
