Sleeping better is one of the fastest way to perform better in all aspects of our lives and this is something that professional athletes and passionate amateurs alike are very aware of. Beatrice Lessi, an Italian and Swiss ultra runner who completed, among others, The Toughest Footrace On Earth – Marathon des Sables, and The Highest Marathon in the World, Everest Marathon, is sharing what role sleep plays in her training and why she only sleeps in Dagsmejan high performance sleepwear.
WHY SLEEP IS IMPORTANT TO ME
Beatrice explains why for her sleep is the key to manage to stay at the top in some of the toughest endurance races in the world:
"Sleep is the most underestimated trick for amateur athletes, and the most effective strategy to get good results, after a good preparation. Professionals understand its value, amateurs often spend money on the best gear and then go sleep-deprived. I’ve heard people claiming that light shoes or compression socks give you 3 minutes less on a marathon. I can tell you that I did all my best times when I managed to sleep the longest, and my worst times when, for some reason, I had too little sleep (and even though I was wearing my best gear)."
HOW TO SLEEP BETTER — SLEEP ROUTINE
For Beatrice one of the key elements for how to sleep better is to establish a sleep routine;
"Two days before a race, I stop drinking coffee or tea, to make sure I fall asleep easily. That is normally enough for me to be able to relax, because in the evening I am simply tired."
RECOVER FASTER WITH PERFORMANCE SLEEPWEAR
Beatrice is a dedicated Dagsmejan sleeper and as she says:
"I instinctively go grab my pyjamas and prefer it to any other one, because I like the feel so much, and I sleep so well with it."
