Pushing Past Impossible with Ryan Stramrood
Ryan Stramrood is one of South Africa's top extreme adventurers and ice swimmers. He quietly travels to the planet's most inhospitable waterscapes where he seeks out extreme cold water swimming experiences. He swam the first official “Ice Mile” in -1°C water in Antarctica, completed a swim in the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland and is the only person to have swam west to east across the shark infested waters of False Bay; all of which is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg of his swimming achievements.
Ryan is also a TED speaker and author of the book 'Push Past Impossible', so Claire and I wanted to chat to him about setting goals that allow him to push past the impossible, conditioning the body for the extreme cold and how to avoid becoming an excuse magnet.
