    The Taper Lane

    This is the lane we all crave.
    The work is done, the big meet's approaching.
    Lot's more hanging out. You can get in late & out early.
    Don't need to do much but what you do needs to be really great.
    Mostly easy swimming. Some very fast swimming.
    Broken races. 25's 50's 75's
    Race rehearsals
    Race pace
    LOTS of rest.
    you're gonna start feeling like super man or woman
    Don't do stupid stuff.
    Don't trust your taper, test your taper.
    Do championship performance prep like Rich Abrahams
    Big musclely sprint types tend to need more weeks than the skinny distancy divas

    there's always lots to talk about in the taper lane
