Tapering for a Half-Marathon, for peak performance

The last stop in the training journey. Αnd, before the goal race there is, of course, the tapering period. When it comes to tapering for a half-marathon, this phase in training helps athletes reach the peak of their athletic condition, if done successfully. As a result, they’re more likely to perform to the maximum of their potential, on the day of the race.

Tapering for a Marathon and how to do it right

As we often mention, a Marathon race requires dedication, determination, and discipline. Hence, we can say with certainty that the most important factor for a successful finish is the “journey”; rather than the race itself, as a “destination”.

Technology can’t replace sports coaches

In this article, I’d like to share — with sports coaches and athletes, alike — my belief, as described in the title. To repeat, technology cannot possibly replace a coach. What it can do, though, is to help make the coach’s job easier, and more efficient.

How does stress impact long-distance runners?

To begin with, let’s be clear about something: stress does not only bring negative effects on the human body. If anything, stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or a response.
