I HAVE A RACE COMING UP. HOW SHOULD I TAPER FOR MY EVENT?
Regardless of your race length, you shouldn’t go much longer than 60 minutes 2 weeks out from your event. The cortisol that it creates is not worth it. The work has already been done and now your main job is to recover.
Below is a general taper template for any athlete leading up to an event. This can be used anytime during the PSE PRO Cycle to coincide with your event date. If you have stayed on top of your recovery then you should only need to Taper for 1 Week. If you need more recovery, or have a very important event, then go ahead and do the full 2 Week Taper Schedule.
Have fun out there and send us some pics!
