How shall I taper?
I am doing Wokingham in 2 weeks time. I am hoping for 2.05 -2.10.
Ive just come down with a cold..... how shall I gear my taper up? I had intended to do 11 tomorrow, 8 next Sunday, with 50% and then 25% intensity for the mid-week runs on the final 2 weeks. Theres no chance of me doing 11 tomorrow, and the earliest I can really see myself getting out and about again will be Weds.
Any suggestions please?
Oh hiya, Exiled claret.... the Burnley fan.... Im Man City, remember me??..
Thank you both for your response. It make sense what you say... I just worry that I will have lost so much. In relaity, Ive lost v little havent I. Right. Im on the case.... many thanks!!!
Thanks Debra. Im going out today, but its freezing outside. I have that dread feeling that its going to be quite horrible when I go out. The thought of not going out though is even worse!! Im going to wear a neck scarf that I can put over my nose as well.
I suppose now is the time to be recovering... had the race been last Sunday, I would have been a non-starter. As it si I feel I will be at the starting line, albeit quite possibly not as quick!!
Just heard that we are due anything between 4 and 8" of snow on Friday........
