After watching the eclipse this morning I am gearing up for my last “long run” before tapering for some upcoming races. I will cut my weekly mileage by about 40% each week in preparation for the Cheyenne Mountain 50k on April 25th with the Collegiate Peaks 50 mile in Buena Vista the following weekend. I believe tapering the last two or three weeks before a race is good practice. This can take sincere commitment and discipline due to the fact your body wants to keep training. I have found this taper help me stay injury free and show up fresh at the start line.
