Some thoughts on Taper...

1. I love Taper
2. I love Taper
3. If you really want a good swim workout, piss off your swim instructor beforehand. Not only will she call you out at swim practice, but she'll give you a damn hard workout (read: "The challenge has been brought, Ryan!")
4. I love Taper

Even though I "shouldn't" be doing a hard swim workout during taper, Courtney (really) does think different on this topic, and I am glad to accept. I feel great today!

The body and mind are definitely benefiting from taper this week.

ps- aaahhhhhhh I love taper...

pps- if you say/read taper a lot, it ends up just sounding weird.

Actually Ryan, Courtney is right and you should be doing high intensity swim workouts during your taper, just keep them short and sweet.
Good luck at WF this weekend and make sure to keep your focus at aid station #4 on the run!

Good Luck this weekend! You are going to do great. The hilly course is going to be a perfect training session for IMLP.
