I’m getting ready for St. George in 10 days, and have IM Thun on the calendar for Sep 5. Thun was just moved from July 11, so I tried switching St. George from a B race to an A race, since 1) I now have more time between races, 2) nothing is lazier than an athlete on taper, and 3) I was thinking that this would result in a more severe taper.
However, the taper was actually much less severe if I made St. George an A race. In fact, there were some damned hard workouts in the last few weeks. So I switched it back to a B race.
Same seems to be true for the Full – the week before the IM is one of the biggest TSS weeks in the plan.
What gives? I want to put my feet up on the couch and eat some muthaflippin’ bonbons!
