Tapering is a well known method used amongst athletes in the week leading up to big sporting events, it allows the body to rest in preparation for a big all out effort at what ever event it is.
If you have not picked it up yet from my ramblings, exercise is a key driver for helping to maintain good blood glucose control and changes to my exercise ‘routine’ can bring about difficulties with control, so now with less than a week to go before I race the off road triathlon, my tapering needs to begin.
Like a computer, the body goes through times where every system process starts to fail in turn creating odd looking system errors and like computers it usually due to one system process failure and then like domino’s they all fall over.
I have found doing a hard reset to the body usually seems to put everything back in place, well most of it anyway…
It’s been so long since I had a shower naked, that I can’t remember the feeling of being so free.
