The Marathon Taper

The length of a Marathon training plan usually ranges between 16-20 weeks. The final 3 weeks are what's considered the Taper Phase of training. The purpose of Tapering is to recover from the physical stress of training, improve your strength leading up to race day, along with improve your running economy (how much oxygen you need to run at a given pace)
