When to taper
I'm training for my first 70.3 in July and I am doing a few sprints and Std's as practice
This time next week I have the West Lancs Sprint. Do I need to taper for that? as my current training distances are above the section distances?
I'm not planning any big rides(60k+) the or runs (15k+) this week, just technique sessions and transition bricks (does that kind of count as taper?)
I'm not going for a PB on sunday as the ride and the swim are shorter than your average Pool based sprint (400/18.5) and therefore unrepresentative. I'm mainly doing it to practice T1/T2 under pressure and test the shiny new stuff I bought over the winter
