Tapering During Base Training

I’ve got a 200km Audax a week after the end of Sweet Spot Base Low Vol I, I’m planning to carry on into SSBLV II after the event.

Advice on tapering for the event would be appreciated. I’m not sure whether to modify the last week of the base plan as part of a taper or exactly what the taper should consist of.

Hey @therealrichie!

You can find the taper weeks for your event in Weeks 7 and 8 of the appropriate Specialty Phase :+1:

In your case, I would swap out Week 6 of SSB I for Week 8 of Century Specialty. This will allow you to taper leading up to your event.

Happy training!
