Our very own @stevemagness talks about why tapering can be a dangerous thing. #EOA #Tapering

Above all though, distance runners are creatures of habit. We freak out when we drop mileage, drop runs, start training once a day. Running is often our stress relief time too, so when we take that away (and with a tough race coming up…) we start stressing out more. On this front, my suggestion is always to keep the routine there. Even if we’re tapering, don’t just cut runs out, have them do something, even if it’s a 10min shakeout, or some easy strength or technique work. During the times I’ve spent in Europe, I can’t tell you how long athletes drag out their easy runs, drills, strides, etc. just to kill time and keep the routine. It’s almost insane how long you can stretch out a 30min easy run. This is an example of keeping the routine. They’re used to being out there for an hour or two, so they find ways to do it.
