It can be easy to think that once you hit taper time all the work has been done, and that's mostly true. But there's a whole lot you can do in the last week to make sure you get to the start line well rested, well fuelled, with your mindset in the right place and ready to go.
This week I talk about:
- What to stop doing the week before your race
- How to avoid the dreaded taper sickness
- What to eat and drink in the lead up; and
- How to calm your nerves to get your head in the right place.
