This whole training cycle I’ve about people who FREAK OUT when it’s time for them to taper their running before their big race. Runners apparently fear the taper and hate it when it’s actually here. I think these runners are crazy. There , I said it. I am totally loving this taper. I have one more long-ish run this weekend (10 miles) and then next weekend is the race. My runs have been fun and I’ve felt light and fast. I don’t know…am I doing something wrong? Why does everyone hate taper so much? I just don’t get it!
I’d love to hear your taper experiences — did you love it / hate it / not do it? Please shed some light on this for me!
