In relation to physical education, tapering is where a performer

reduces the amount of training they do before an event. For example

in the marathon, a performer would not run 26 miles the day before

the event as their muscles will nto have time to recover and

therefore they will not perform to their optimum. A week or so

before the event, they may run a full marathon, but then each day

will decrease the distance they run. The day before the event, they

may not run at all so their muscles have had time to recover after

the training.
