Be patient during times of inactivity
Sun Tzu 'The art of war'.

All the hard work is done and now it's time to Taper (reduce training volume and intensity). Sounds easy but this can be the hard part. You start to feel edgy and wondering should you try one more hard session or maybe doubting what you've done and start going through the what ifs in your head. But the Taper is just as important as the training and essential for optimum performance. It's during this stage of the programme that your body recovers from all the recent stress and recovers stronger. If you've done the work and have confidence in your training knowing that you have done all that you can do then the Taper is that bit easier to accept.

You have to believe in yourself
Sun Tzu.
