Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

On this episode, Cole and I chat about tapering for a Spartan Race using methods such as the current week’s workload and perceived effort as a determination for how much of an effort level and workload to put out in a race taper depending on race distance (Sprint, Super, Beast).

 

TAKE AWAY POINTS:

  • At least a 1 week taper for a Beast
  • Use RPE (rate of perceived exertion) as a means to determine effort level
  • The immediate events leading up to a race (sleep, work, previous workouts) need consideration is a taper plan
  • Listen to your body!
