The Taper

Next week I will begin my 2 week taper before my marathon. I’m re reading part of this book:

Matt Fitzgerald recommends a 2 week taper if you generally run up to 40 miles a week in your training (like I did), and a 3 week taper if you run more than 40 miles a week in your training.

The taper will involve:
1. Reducing calorie intake.
2. Fat loading.
3. Caffeine fasting.
4. Carb loading.

Eeeeeeeek!

Ps: it’s a good book. 🙂
