- The hard work is done... or is it?

- For most of us 'taper time' can be the toughest of all the training weeks as we fight with the negative feelings associated with reduced mileage and the increase in available time in which to eat naughty food or fall off the garden shed and break a leg! In this week's Training Talk we cover the key aspects required to arrive on the start line of your 'A' race in tip top shape.
