But back to taper.
So in a nutshell, this is what I plan to do. But first, take a look at my miles leading up to the Maui Marathon. The marathon was the last day of the 33-mile week. And please note, these training weeks end on Sundays, which is race day, so I am considering the week of the 1 week out week....if that makes any sense.
|3 weeks out|
|2 weeks out|
|1 week out|
Of course, all of this has me quite nervous but on some levels, it makes sense. Perhaps my instinct is to over-taper and I can't say I need to change things up with setting a new PR just last month but what if I did change things up and got even better race day performance? What if I followed this plan and shaved off more time? What would you do?
