This weekend was my last hard training weekend of for the South Carolina Half. Yesterday was a fifty mile ride and today was a 24mile ride/12 mile run combo. The later part of today was full of naps. In fact, any time I was not training this weekend, it seemed like I was napping. They call this point of training "the razor". I have pushed my body as hard as I need to at this point, now it is time to recover.
The next two weeks I will need to hold myself back from training and eating. Training ramps up the eating, but when the training ends, the appetite does not. Most of what I do will for the next couple of weeks will involve keeping loose and keeping speed.
Let the taper period begin!
