Race-Week Taper Crazy and Preparation
I’ve been mentally processing this event for the past few days, and it is all still sinking in. What an experience. I decided that training for an Ironman is like planning for a wedding. You spend so many months planning every last detail. Then–BOOM! It’s over.
Last week, I went through what I call “taper crazy.” My training was mostly done, and I had a lot more time on my hands to obsess about every last detail possible. I was emotional, irritable, and just plain anxious.
