Taper is overrated. Who needs fresh legs when you can have baked goods?

My schedule once I hit my peak long run looks like "eat and run, but run less. maybe eat better. maybe."

I find the whole taper thing sooooo confusing. I'll probably buy a house or something, knowing my self control.

Molly said...

nah, you don't need to taper. Why ruin a good thing? : )

XLMIC said...

I spend enough time tapering for the both of us ;-)

Have fun with Caroline and at Catalina :)

My "taper" tends to look like "stop and sit on my ass" - also not a good plan if you were wondering. Have a fantastic race! Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Oh I taper and I love it. I have embraced the taper madness except for the eating.

I am avoiding going into the kitchen at all costs.....haha!

Rock the course.....f the hills!

Baking is tapering? Then I taper at least once a week and sometimes more.
