I'm doing Bristol Half next Sunday and so I am tapering my training up to the race. Planning a seven mile slow one tomorrow and a couple of little ones in the week but at the very time I feel at my fittest and best, having got my mileage up nicely, I have to cut right back. I'm absolutely itching to get out there and run, which is great as I'm sure it bodes well for the race but, having told myself to rest today I am contemplating a run. I just hope I'm feeling so keen come race day.
How do others cope with taper fever?
