Hi all, I’m a starting to freak out a little. I have been training with TR for the past 6 months for an upcoming MTB 8 hr XC race. My race is on June 1st with a travel date before so, I scheduled a taper week starting 5/20 and ending 5/29. I did the first workout on 5/22 and when I finished I felt like garbage. A couple of hours later i began to get really cold and my body started to ache. I woke up in the morning shivering in my bed and my entire body ached, took the day off work and tried to rest. It’s been 2 days since and I haven’t done any of the subsequent workouts because I go thru periods of hot and cold with body aches. It’s almost like I have a fever, pop a couple of Advil and I feel fine. I am beginning to get pretty anxious because I’m really trying to not ride to let my body heal but, I need to get some of these taper workouts in. I’m afraid everything is crashing down the week before my race. I have been feeling pretty strong up until this past week.
