Taper Time!!!!

Well I am down to less than 3 weeks left. The horse is in the barn as they say on the farm. The training is done....now the rest begins! I made it 69 miles last week getting me within 19 miles of Leadville. Now it is time to taper. During the taper period (if I get time) I will try to describe each part of the course on my way to Winfield. This will also give me a chance to visualize my race from start to finish. How does my taper work you may ask. Well it is a 3 week taper. I average close to 60 mile weeks over the last 11 weeks. So my taper will go like this: 45 miles this week, 30 miles next week, and 15 miles the last week. I am ready to store energy and to get my legs feeling strong. I feel good about my chances of finishing this year. But you have to respect the distance especially at Leadville. Plus you have to respect the altitude in Leadville too. I will give it my best shot I promise you that!!! More soon as we creep closer to the big day.
