In many ways, how you handle the final two weeks leading up to your big race is just as important, if not more so, as the months you spent training for it. You will hear the word ‘taper’ thrown around this time of year. Taper refers to the rest period before your hardest effort, whether a triathlon, marathon, half marathon, or other distance race/event. Here are a few suggestions to guide you through this subtle, but vital stage of your race preparation. These simple suggestions will help ensure that race day is a celebratory culmination of the work you put in, and not a disappointing ride on the struggle bus.
