The hay's in the barn! Or in other words, how to taper for your next race: #runchat #trainsmart
I couldn’t agree more with your taper method. I have found in my running career that when I back off my mileage and intensity too much I feel flat on race day. But when I’m in the training zone and hitting my mileage and hard workouts I usually feel pretty good most of my runs. All it takes is a slight decrease in mileage like you say and shortening some of my harder workouts and I’m usually fresh and ready to roll come race day. Glad to see someone agrees with me rather then always hearing from the experts that I am wrong. We know best how our bodies work and listening to what your body wants is the best way to improve your running performance.
