It’s just one week to go until the London Marathon.

As part of your tapering regime, hopefully you have done or you are about to do about a quarter of a marathon distance.

Here are a few top tips, for the week to come.

1.    Keep your routine stable

  • Keep your diet, sleep and training routine stable, whilst significantly tapering your training in the last week.

  • Maintain your stretching regime and lower intensity strength and core exercises.

  • Don’t start any new forms of exercise.

2.    Relax and train your mind

  • Relaxation and positive psychology techniques can improve long distance running performance.

  • Replace some of the time that you have been spending running, with training your mind and relaxation.

  • Headspace provides 10 minute guided meditations for free for 10 days.
