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. 

• It Takes Courage To Race
• Your Goals and Dreams on Display
• Race Anxiety and Phantom Pain
• Ironman Louisville on its last leg?
• Chocolate Milk
• Ironman Chattanooga and Maryland Loom
• Why aren’t Lava or SIM shorts legal?
• What Do We Know?
• What To Do About The Pressure
• Relaxing on Race Morning
• How To Get Positive During Taper
• How do you trust that taper is building your body?
• The Difference between being Fresh and Fit
• The Magic and Mystery of The Taper
• Sharpen the Sword, Just Don’t Use It
