I'm stepping up fom 10k to my first half marathon at the Great North Run and wanted some advice on how much, or little training to do in the week leading up to the race. At 10k level it doesn't seem to matter much what you in the days leading up, but I'm assuming it does for the longer race re energy reserves, muscle tiredness etc

I would say... carry on as normal until Wednesday then rest up on Thurs and Fri. On Saturday do 20 mins or half an hour easy with 2 or 3 sets of strides. Repeat that on the Sunday a.m. before the race and you should fly!
