Listen, Von SmallHaussen: This Is Taper Week!
Remember the story about the cobbler’s son always going unshod? Yeah, well last night I had a discussion with Von SmallHaussen about tapering and not over-cooking things a week before our Big Ride together (ooo-er!)
So in the spirit of do as I say, not as I do . . . .
- I’d been out running yesterday morning for something like 8 miles
- This morning I went out early with Training Buddy for a little fixed wheel in the hills fun. We did 40 miles, and around 4,000 ft of climbing . Though as I keep telling anyone who’ll listen - it’s not the Ups, but the Downs that hurt on a fixed wheel bike . .
Not feeling my best at the moment. Wondering about that run I have scheduled for tomorrow morning at 6 . . .
