The Taper

Sonja Wieck

A Denver area triathlete enjoying every day of swim bike run. Mom to Annie, wife to Troy, and guide to a few brave athletes, I'm always in search of the next adventure.

    i love all the training in preparation for the Kona heat! so clever. i too hate the taper, but i use it to catch up on things ive missed during the training, like a book or visiting old friends.
    anyway – good luck at Kona!

    I love this approach to training in the weeks leading up to the big day. Between your work ethic/determination and the mad scientist’s guidance, I know you’re going to exceed expectations in Kona.

    No taper tantrums young lady!

    All the best,

    Oh my gosh, that pic of you on the trainer in the bathroom simulating the humidity of Kona is a crackup. Actually, Sep was a great month for heat-training here, don’t you think?

    Getting super-fired up for you!
