Strava is a different kind of a social network. It’s where you’ll find runners, cyclists and endurance athletes under one roof. Both the pros and the amateurs. For amateurs Strava is especially interesting, because you can use it to not only track your workouts and share them with others, but you can also compare your performance (in detail) to top athletes and push yourself harder by opting in for monthly challenges. The biggest benefit of using Strava is the boost it gives to your motivation regularly.
It’s so useful to connect with other athletes and learn from their training approaches. While there’s only a handful of pro obstacle course racing athletes on Strava, a lot can be gleaned from their profiles. Some train 3x a day, some do prolonged runs twice a day, and others tend to focus more on cross training. Seeing these activities in your feed is not just motivational, but a useful resource to expand and improve your own training regime.

You may ask why so few ladies? After researching this it just seems to be fairly uncommon for the highly-performing women of OCR to use Strava. If I’ve missed off any athletes (of any gender) please do let me know via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll make sure to add them to this list.
