ASICS Target 26.2 coach Sam Murphy will be online between 1pm and 2pm today to answer your questions about the final phase of marathon training, the taper and race day itself. Whether you're worrying about what training to do in taper, or trying to put together the perfect pace plan for your race, Sam's here to help.
Sam is one of the UK's leading fitness experts, and a keen runner. She has completed 15 marathons (with a PB of 3:22) and the Himalayan 100 Mile Race among numerous others.
In addition to her first class degree in Sport and Exercise Science, Sam is a level 2 UKA running coach and a tutor for England Athletics. She has also written seven books which have been published internationally, including Run for Life: The Real Woman's Guide to Running, and Marathon and Half Marathon: From Start to Finish.
We're opening the discussion now so Sam will be able to get stuck in straight away at 1pm (rather than having to deal with too many questions all at once). That's enough from me - time to get posting!
