An actual observation to the contrary of your assumption. Good.

"...if... I'd... and would..."
Sounds like a bunch of mental uncertainties to me.. and those will slow you down more than a bad taper will

Try to keep your focus on your races rather than how you think you would or might feel in the week(s) leading up to them. Have a good taper plan, and the taper will be there. Don't waste focus with the if's and would's.
