First things first: Only when we recover properly can we perform at full capacity. So far – so obvious. Nevertheless, we often ignore and suppress this. And of course, in times of a pandemic, recovery is often not that easy.
To help you out a bit here, this Editorial Letter is all about recovery: Long-distance cyclist Michi Strasser knows how effective performance management works. The extreme athlete gives us valuable tips and explains what the difference is between a break and proper regeneration is.
Sport can even contribute to the recovery of entire societies after the pandemic. This is impressively shown by a UN report. We have summarized the most important facts for you.

With this in mind, have a good rest!
