Cures for taper tantrums*


  • Mud.
  • Hills
  • Sunshine
  • Fresh air
  • Sea views
  • What new shoes?

5.29 miles in an hour. New shoes felt great, straight from the box, a bit slippy in the mud but I wasn’t worried about speed. I could still breath ‘running’ up the hills and best of all my Achilles felt fine!

* and many other types of tantrum.

  1. great news about the Achilles! good call to miss GSR

  2. Those look like some pretty glorious cures. (Good for you for putting recovery ahead of racing, by the way…)
