“Tapering”

Everyone has asked if I’m tapering for the race. Apparently I am, although it doesn’t necessarily seem like it from looking at my workout schedule.

The workouts are generally shorter, but harder. We’re “sharpening” my fitness. I keep imagining a pencil sharpener for some reason, although that’s not very intimidating is it?

According to Strava, I have tapered off:

I don’t really know what that means, or if it really means anything, but it sure looks impressive. Look at all that upward momentum!

At this point, I’m mostly trying to avoid getting sick or injured. Which means being careful with all workouts, sleeping as much as humanly possible, and staying hydrated. Basically I’m doing what you should always be doing, but actually doing it.

Mostly I just want to get on the road. Now ? now ? now!
