how to taper well before a race
I need some help on tapering. I'm doing my first 3km in 7 weeks time. I'm not worried about the distance but my shoulders have been really tired lately and I amd worried I don't arrive at swim feeling great. I know I need to rest and maybe get a massage but I also don't want to stop swimming completely. 7 weeks is still plenty of time so I'll keep going until at least 2 weeks before and then take it easier, drop the intensity and keep doing the distance. Any advise / thoughts on how to taper off well.
