The Hay is in the Barn

All the hard work is done!  All the crazy long miles, and double weekends.  There is no more I can do to add to my training.  It is time to rest and time to race.  My body is in prime condition for the upcoming tasks.
As I begin to reduce my mileage I will begin to tighten my diet.  Now starts the less sugar, no fried foods, and reduction in meats.  When I reduce my miles I need to reduce my daily calories as well.  I will be cranky and the phantom aches and pains will occur.  The next 6 weeks I need to focus more yoga and stretching.  I wonder what the over under in days is for the first post of "this taper is driving me nuts"?  9 days?
