With Pan Ams one week away it's time to taper off the hard training. I was curious to know what some of you guys do during the week leading up to a big tournament. As luck would have it I have a week vacation next week. Normally I would be training like crazy if I have time off. I'm not sure if it's a curse or a blessing to have time off. I will have a lot of time to think which could be bad. I will be heading to the beach, going on long walks with my wife, catching a movie, going to book stores, and basically keeping myself distracted. I will be going into the academy during open mat periods to work on my strengths and taking off Wednesday and Thursday completely. Friday will hopefully be the absolute division and Saturday will be my weight class. I'm 5 lbs under my weight limit so I will be eating pasta, yams, and other good carbs and getting lots of rest. What do you Sherdoggers do leading up to big tourneys?? Thanks.
