As we enter our final week before the race, at this stage you should have tapered your training and are in the final stages of your preparation. Physically I'm hoping you have the hard yards done, and we should now be spending this week on the mental preparation needed to get through the race.
As well as this, there are a few other dos and don'ts we should try keep in mind this week:
Remember it's only a race, so pace yourself. Don’t go mad fast at the start of the race just because you feel you need to keep pace with the rest of the group- half the speedsters will end up slowing down and you can pass them later. Trust me!
Go slower at the beginning and gradually pick up your pace each mile. Then, if you’ve got energy left in the tank…pick it up a notch or two the last mile and then really sprint the last 100 meters if you can with the crowd cheering you on as you cross the finish line!
Should you require any of the SSTF services or any further information regarding any of the topics discussed, please contact me on 07786375730, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.sstf-web.com
