After a long cross-country season spent skiing and competing, week in, week out, how soon should you start training again? What should you focus on?
OWN IT - Your body, mind, attention, intention and dreams. Forget the fashion magazines, the influencer accounts and the perfect BMI, it's time to say, "I'm doing this for me." You OWN IT - All of it!
As a professional skier, Ursina Badilatti’s days were consistent: equal parts eating, training and sleeping, the same routine, day-in, day-out. Flights, training camps and world cup events added variety, sure. But during her 15-year cross-country career, during which she earned a 3rd place finish at the Engadin ski marathon and various Swiss championship titles, her mind and body felt disconnected.
As a former competitive athlete in cross-country skiing, I know what diligence and consistency are. Without regular training, passion and the necessary portion of heart and soul, an athlete does not get far. But away from sport. Thanks to regularity, we can develop fun in any activity in everyday life, because regularity brings consistency, practice and finally progress.
