Faster in Competitions

Why are athletes better under pressure than alone?

Every endurance athlete has had this experience. You train consistently and seriously for a competition. You can feel the work paying off and feel in top shape at some point. Even if there are perhaps a few weeks left until your main race, the “time trial” is now on the agenda as a benchmark. Marathon runners might complete a 20 kilometre session at maximum speed, cyclists do a solo time trial or a mountain they climbed already under racing conditions. And swimmers crawl 1000 to 1500 meters with the goal of being faster this time than they were a month ago.

Social Distance Race Series

The official measures required by the corona virus regarding social distancing currently make participation in competitions impossible. However, regular exercise and training are still recommended by experts. We know from experience how difficult it is to stay motivated for daily training when the clear training goal is missing. For this reason we at 2PEAK have created the “Social Distance Race Series”.

Race Recovery

After a race there’s always two aspects to be analysed. How is your body (physical aspect) and how’s the head (psychological aspect) dealing with the ups and downs and the fight with ourselves? It’s normal and a good stimulus for us to not always be 100% happy with how a race went. Because there’s always at least one thing that could be optimised. Important is, that we can use this to learn and improve ourselves for the next big day.
