burning man

Tapering for a race is a lot like maintaining a beautiful garden; cutting the grass, landscaping the hedges, weeding, edging, watering – ensuring that everything is *perfectly* in place and beautifully manicured….

…before dousing it with gasoline, throwing a match on it and burning it to the ground. Which is the race of course.

I’m setting a very risky precedent this week. I’m rested, recovered – not injured. Within 2 lbs of my race weight… I have no excuses. None.
