TAPER MADNESS!!!!

Post  Nick Morris on Sun Oct 20, 2013 6:26 pm

I know that there are quite a few people who are in the middle of taper.  Whether it be for MCM, NYC, or another race.  That being said, I wanted to start a thread for those that are tapering to post their MADNESS Smile

Personally, I am through my first week of taper and really have not felt the madness yet.  Normally I get all worked up, because my mileage starts to dip.  So far this year, it is not the case.  I am sure that I will succumb to the madness as I get closer to my race.  It is a fun time of year Smile

I was suppose to start tapering today. But I decided to try a 2 week taper since I was definitely on the low side of mileage my last training cycle and I don't feel particularly tired or ready to rest up at all. 

So, I'll check back here in one week and join you all then!  My marathon is November 10 (Naperville Marathon)

You can tell that Michele is in full bore taper madness.  Just look how the lower case 't' in her sentences make a darker mark on the upper half of the 't' than the lower half.

A textbook and clinical example of taper madnessmyoinfarctionencephalopothy.  She just needs a couple of weeks and an extended run through 5 or 6 boroughs to rid herself of the affliction.

You mean there aren't boroughs in Indianapolis? Let's see, there's the Speedway borough, the gawdawful airport borough, the downtown borough, and, uh, and.. hm.

Well, you could swing south to the Bloomington and Bedford boroughs, but that's probably more than 26.2 at that point...
