core

Rest day! Starting the taper now!

ASIDE - I'm not sure I have actually ever tapered properly for any event before… unless you count three easy days in a row as a taper. I am learning that rest and tapering are valuable skills. Note to self, figure it out.

Q: What is one of the most important things for recovery?
A: Sleep.

Did I get much last night? Nope. On the upside, after tossing and turning for a while I picked up a book, read some and was able to fall back asleep. That's worth something in my book.

Another crucial part to recovery is stretching. I resolve to do more this year. Today I got in some.
