Prevea On the Move: Why do you taper?

You have been increasing your mileage all training season, improving your distance and confidence. Now it’s time to wean your mileage and allow your body a break—reduced distances are needed to rest and get your body ready for race day. This process, called tapering, is essential to a successful race day; you began tapering last week and will continue until race day.

 

In this week’s Prevea On the Move [link to http://youtu.be/UqjRl5VIJEo ], Cellcom Green Bay Marathon Race Director, Sean Ryan covers the importance of  tapering your distance runs before race day as well as the importance of diet and keeping focused to reach the finish line.
