Video — Tapering for the Marathon

running-advice-bugIt’s time for Episode 16 in our series and this time we’re at a new location: our backyard pool. No, this one’s not about swimming or cross-training, but we’re talking about recovery for the next couple of weeks. We kick off this section of our discussion talking about tapering for the marathon.

In this episode:
— What’s a taper?
— Does everyone need to taper?
— How long should a taper be?
— What should you do during the taper?
— Was Coach Dean’s year-long taper a good idea?

This video is part of our Desert Series, in which Coaches Joe English and Dean Hebert get their lips smackin’ about all things marathon running. There are over 30 episodes in the series and they come out every week on www.running-advice.com.
