I'd be hard-pressed to identify any aspect of my life with which I have a more love-hate relationship than tapering.  (Chocolate?  The Mets?  My progeny?)  As I start approaching the end of a big training block, the cumulative effect of volume starts to take its toll, and there are days when I long for a reduction in mileage.  Last week, finishing up an eight-week, 850+ mile buildup for
