Let the great taper tantrum begin.

 

 

Running is how I survive all the hard stuff in my life. It is where I find balance, peace, and freedom. It is my time. When I have to start tapering I feel it go against everything in my being.

However, tapering has been proven to improve your running performance, so I am doing it, but in the meantime, there are consequences to my state of being.

How do you all cope with tapering?

Launched in 2018 for people who love running and traveling. If you have a passion to explore while kicking it in your running shoes, this is the blog for you. You will learn about amazing races around the world, a little culture that goes along with traveling, and some everyday running advice. I've been running and traveling for over 12 years, and I would like to think I learned a few things along the way. When I moved overseas to teach in international schools, I not only fell in love with living abroad, but I also fell in love with discovering the world on foot. Enjoy and subscribe!

  1. It’s hard not being able to run, but I usually find it a relief after the gruelling training! I try to focus on the things I’ve maybe not had time for when I’ve been training, whether that’s socialising, or going to a yoga class, or enjoying walking instead ❤️
