Taper time is here. And that means I get a little crazier than normal. I know tapering is a necessity and my body will thank me come race day, but ACTUALLY tapering can be tough. I get in my head and stress myself out. And I know I’m not alone. Decided to share my taper thoughts incase anyone can relate.
The reality is…I’ll be fine. I know I’ve put in the work. I just need to relax (which is easier said than done). My body is fine. I will get over this cold. I will follow my reduced mileage. I’ll deal with my crazy thoughts and try to put all my energy into focusing on a successful finish line. I’m so close. And I cannot wait for October 9th.
