Virgin London Marathon: Running Legends’ Advice

Be inspired by the running greats before you take on Sunday's Virgin London Marathon

 9 of 9 

Andy Dixon, Runner's World UK Editor:

Match the last 10 miles to 10 friends and family, and think of them during tough moments to pull you through.

Harness the Poplar High Street effect (20 miles in): think of the remainder as one 10K (or two 5Ks). Get a boost from the fact that you are now facing west, directly towards the finish.

And visualise your reward meal during tough moments (mine is steak, chips and an ice-coldbeer). Then go and eat it!
