Topic - Tapering for ultras

Marek - on 21 Aug 2013
I need all the help I can get...
Used to do ultras 15+ years ago, got distracted by climbing, biking and injuries, but got the bug again. I'm mid 50s and need to stay ahead of son (mid 20s). He's got speed, I've got stamina - at least that's the theory.
1 month to 40 miler (hp40) - so far been just clocking up miles and trying to avoid getting an niggling injuries. Tend to run/cycle on alternate days to save hammering the old legs, but still keep the blood flowing. Previously I'd be doing some speed work now, would just easy off at the start of the last week, carbo-load for the last day or so. Any better advice (given I don't believe in carbo-loading much anymore)?
