The Magic and Mystery of the Taper

It's late in the season and many of us on in or close to taper. Tapering has this sort of "we're done" image, but that's really the furthest thing from the truth. Done right, the taper can produce amazing results on race day. It's all about sharpening the sword, but not using it.

One of our favorite authors is Charles Bukowski and his famous saying is, "Don't Try." We think what he means is, "Don't try to be someone you're not" and while it obviously applies to life, it hits hard for a lot of athletes in triathlon. Perfecting any craft is a slow burn and at the core is being realistic with yourself and your goals. It can also make the experience much more rewarding and fun.

On the heels of our last 2018 Crushing Iron Triathlon Camp, we look at what we learned and how everyone helped Re-Ground the reason we do triathlon. We talk about awareness and how understanding the mind is the key to reducing distraction in our lives. There's also good stuff on how to execute YOUR RACE amongst the distractions and a good section on staying calm in open water.

  • 24 Hours Doesn’t Have To Be The Same Day
  • Beating Negative Thoughts
  • "Checking Out" is not The Best Recovery
  • Training while you travel
  • How Days Off Can Derail You
  • Same Day Recovery
  • Staying In The Groove after Vacation

The last 2-3 months of training for an Ironman can bring a lot of doubt and confusion. You're tired, burned out, and the road seems like it may never end. But it will . . . and the key is understanding how to handle your build, see the light in your Taper, and be ready to leave it on the course for ONE DAY. Today we look at understanding the reasoning behind the build phase and how to best approach your taper and race.
