The annual marathon race is upon us again in Singapore. If you have signed up for the race, you should be into your tapering phase now. It's no use tiring yourself out by doing more long distance runs and trying to increase your fitness and efforts. Because simply put, you won't be able to and will only risk injury, as most experienced runners know.

Here's a useful tapering plan, for one week before your marathon race.
