Currently training for Edinborough next week, my first full marathon. I'm think I'm in reasonable shape for it (sub-1:30 half marathon three weeks ago) and have put in few good 20 milers. However, I recently did some hard hill runs before starting my taper and have found that I've got some residual strain in my calves and hamstrings. I can run on it over shorter distances, but I'm a bit worried about how things might pan out across 26.2.
So my question is, how much rest can I afford during the last week? Are there any good steps I can take to minimise the risk of problems during the race? Any advice welcome!
