My fellow Crushers - 5 days to go! You’ve gotten as fast as you are gonna get - trust the taper and channel that nervous energy to race day.
If you haven’t listened to our podcast and watched our ‘how to’ video here you go:
@Jackson and I go thru each climb and feed station and what to know about the course. Good luck and if you have any last minute questions, post them here!!
Thanks Frank. Two questions- what should I expect from the taper (will I feel like a million bucks and just need to resist the urge to go out too fast)? Second question- are you and Jackson doing a live show?

@eliotbowytz - I think you will feel good but this is where feeling how hard you can push up that first hour climb really helps.
Heart rate is actually really good in a taper because threshold heart rate is the same under taper conditions. Maybe a beat or two higher.
You’ll prolly feel slightly better than you did this past Saturday.
Hope that helps ! No live show, sorry!
