Taper and Race Week:

This week, it is important to tone it down and don’t over due it. Taper can be defined as a reduction in training with the goal of having the athlete sharp at the end of taper. The goal of sharpness is to optimize fitness for a amazing performance at an important race.

Therefore, don’t go crazy in the training this week as you may feel very strong. Hold it up and give it to me on Race Day!
