Athletes and Hunger: Do we eat because we are hungry?

I caught myself considering buying a set of titanium bolts for my racing machine. You save 5 grammes – has to be worth it! At the very latest when the climb gradient reaches double figures, we curse every gramme which helps our physical enemy, gravity to make life hard for us. It is almost a meditative therapy to imagine ordering the pretty package, opening it and replacing the steel bolts in the evening in the workshop.

Mental Toughness

During winter, without any races going on you’re mostly just training (more or less by yourself). You train but you still don’t really know where you stand in comparison to other athletes. Then Easter rolls along, many have already been in their first training camp for this year and the race season is only a few weeks away. Yup, time is definitely flying by and with it comes the question if we are on course/track. Am I training enough? Am I making progress? Is my data correct?

The 2PEAK Battery Explained

A big topic that comes with training is your recovery. This takes almost just as much discipline as the actual training and can be improved by a lot of things (reduce stress, increase amount of sleep…). When you log into your 2PEAK account, you can see a battery icon in the top right hand corner. This article is all about explaining what happens behind this battery, what it stands for and how you can use it to your advantage.
