A former professional footballer whose career ended through injury, Luke battled with depression, and now takes on some of the world's most extreme ultra-endurance challenges. Luke's Lowdown is full of stories, insights, tips, with plenty of laughs from what life has taught Luke on his journey in life so far. A variety of topics are covered like health & wellness, endurance sports, nutrition, mental health, mindset, fitness, and more.
In this episode of the Luke's Lowdown Podcast Luke chats about how he looks at what should define each and all of us.
It's not one moment, one result, one day, or even what others say; looking long term, WITH how you act each day is important when defining who you are, what you're trying to achieve, and where you're at as an individual, business, or athlete.
In this episode of the Luke's Lowdown Podcast Luke discusses a concept that he calls 'The Best You Conundrum.'
We hear all the time that we should strive daily to be the best version of ourselves, right!?
This is all well and good when you are taking small steps each day forward to being that best version of you, but what happens when you slip up, fall, or are not the best version of yourself that day, that week, or even for an entire year???
Luke discusses this and shares how you should think and act when this happens.
In this episode of the Luke's Lowdown Podcast Luke chats with the extremely humble James Williams. James is taking on a 900 mile world record, running the entire length of Britain in just nine days.
Apart from the obvious challenge James faces (in actually running this distance in such a short time frame) this isn't why Luke wanted to chat with him.
James is a husband, father, and works a 9-5:30 job five days a week; Luke wanted to get an understanding of how someone with 'real life' responsibilities, a full time job, and family can fit in all his training for his challenge, while also still partaking in day to day life and fulfilling all his responsibilities.
There are many takeaways from this episode, especially how you can prioritise your own time and life to be successful!
