How to taper for that big race you have coming up. What to do if you have missed some of your long training runs?
How to prepare yourself mentally for the battle ahead and how to stop the fear monsters from getting you in this phase, telling you you are getting unfit, putting on weight and so on.
It's just the brain trying to guilt you out so don't listen to it and stick to the plan.
Why the taper is crucial and why you should do extra mobility workouts and mental preparation with the likes of meditation and visualisation exercises. Asking yourself about the "Why". What you motivation is for this event and what is the result or purpose of this.
