by Andrew Heffernan
Oct 30, 2008
It seems to have calmed down a bit in the last few months, but there's been a bit of a schism for a while now between endurance types and the weight training types. In a word, runners and their ilk have become the Star-Bellied Sneeches of the fitness world.

Getting Race Ready, Part 3: Tips for Tapering
by Jennifer Gill,
Oct 8, 2008
Training is about adapting to the stress your body endured
training. The taper period, usually the 2-3 weeks before a distance
race, enables your muscles, bones, joints, etc., to recover from that
stress and be in prime condition for your race. It also gives your head
time to regroup and mentally prepare for the big day. So many
runners train hard right up to the day of the race because they think
they'll lose fitness if they don't. What they don't realize is that in
those last few weeks it's the rest more than the work that makes you
strong. You simply can't "cram" for a race. Also, you don't lose
fitness in 2-3 weeks of tapering. In fact, studies show that your
aerobic capacity, the best gauge of fitness, doesn't change at all.
