Episode 67: Tapering/Rocky Harris USAT CEO

In this episode:

Tapering is a well accepted part of a triathlon training program leading up to an event. But how should a taper be structured in order to get the most out of it and how long should it last? There is actually a fair bit of research on these questions and on this episode I take a look to help answer them along with some others like whether or not the 'taper tantrums' are a real thing. Plus, an interview with USAT CEO Rocky Harris. Rocky talks to me about the state of triathlon, the future coming out of the pandemic and efforts to increase diversity and inclusion in the sport.

Segments:

[06:00]- The science of tapering

[24:00]- Rocky Harris
