I looooove taper.
I'm not sure why most people complain about it. I get a chance to do all those things I have been putting off for months, or trying to sqeeze in between workouts, kids and life.
I can always tell it truly is taper time when I am doing this......
I love to really clean my bike....like REALLY clean it. She is going into the bike shop tomorrow to get prettied up for race day and get her race wheels on. Yikes.....is it really only 12 days until IMCDA? I remember when the race time line was being measured in months not days.
I think everything is ready to go and barring any unforseen catastrophe ( touch wood) I should be toeing the line come June 23rd. I have been battling a sinus and upper respiratory infection the last few days which made open water swimming a bit of a nightmare, but I am taking antibiotics so hopefully that should be all under control by the time the race rolls around.
So now, all that's left for me to do is to keep on tapering, tapering, tapering. Luckily for me that is something I've got nailed down pretty well. No complaints here.
