Before thinking about tapering, I think you need to ask yourself why you are going to Penn
Relays. If your girls are in the 13.0 area, I don’t think you can be going because you expect to bring home a bunch of medals. If you are going for the experience, or as a reward for their hard work, why would you try to peak for this meet?
Well, although I have two 13.0 girls, I also have two 12.50 girls. The relay can go in the 48 low range, which looking at last years results can possibly make the final.
I’m taking the girls for the experience, however, if we run in the 48 low range, we can make the finals which would be an excellent accomplishment.
