When is the best time to Taper? Plus Yasso 800s, Gels and More
In this week's episode, Seán and Eric talk about doing their last long run before the Dublin Marathon (with two weeks to go). Why it is traditionally three weeks to taper before a marathon, what do the followers of the Any Given Training Day Podcast think about tapering/how they are approaching it before Dublin, and what the research says is the best approach.We also discuss using gels and the Yasso800s approach to determine your marathon pace. As Seán promised on the podcast, an example of the Yasso800s is below:Yasso 800s is a track workout that involves running repeats of 800-meters or two laps around a standard track. The original Yasso 800s workout includes ten repeats of 800 meters, with running recovery laps for an equal amount of time as your fast intervals. If the goal is a 4-hour marathon: take 4 mins to do 800m and recover for 4 mins. If you can run the 8oom in 2:50 x 10, you are, in theory, a 2-hour 50-minute runner. Not scientific proof that it works, but… if it’s worked for you, great!
