WF Taper & Recovery Stats

14 May

This is the last that you will hear of Wildflower! I will shortly start obsessing talking about Pac Crest.

Taper week was pretty low on miles. I just tried to keep everything loose and ready to go for the race.

WF Training Week #15 (+WF race)โ€”Taper Stats

Swim: 2200 meters (+2000) =4200 meters
Bike: 35 miles (21 road miles and 14 commuting miles) (+56 miles) = 91 miles
Run: 4 miles (+13.1 miles) = 17.1 miles

Recovery Week #16 (+training camp)

Swim: 3600 meters
Bike: 36 miles (all commuting) + (143 miles) = 179 miles
Run: 0 miles (9.5 miles) = 9.5 miles

1 Pilates class

I was just trying to take it easy last week leading into training camp. I knew it would be a hard weekend especially because of the fatigue from the race.

I am taking this week easy as well. Just recovering from camp and getting ready for the RNR Portland ยฝ marathon on Sunday!

How do you feel about taper? I used to HATE it but now I EMBRACE it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Girl!! You totally ROCK!! I can’t believe you are doing so much already after your WF race!! Wish I was there at the R&R PDX this wknd but instead I’ll be doing the Cap City 1/2 in Olympia ๐Ÿ™‚ (I debated whether I wanted to do r&r but can’t pass on a local race near home). As far as tapering…. I really still don’t know how I feel about it, but definitely never complain about the lower volume leading up to a race! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are a busy lady! SO impressed with your WF/Bend camp duo. And now a half marathon, too!
    Good luck!
