April 27 - Race Week
Tapering... For those of you who are racing on Saturday, here are my words of advice: there is nothing you can do between now and then to get faster - there are lots of things that you can do to make yourself slower. Meaning? It takes your body 7 to 10 days to gain any benefits from a hard workout. So if you feel like you "missed" too many runs, don't try to make them up this week. You'll experience all the fatigue that comes with a workout but get none of the benefits by Saturday's race. Bottom line: no hard running, don't add anything new ("hey I feel like stretching...") rest, relax and pay attention to your hydration and nutrition.
