The taper is coming - Repair, Replenish and Regroup.

Here is a good article which gives you some tips for the perfect taper. 

“I try to do some form of activity every day to combat the “taper blues,” whether that’s a short easy run, or swimming, or even a walk. As long as I’m active, I can tell myself that it’s okay that I’m not running my normal volume.” 
- 14 time half-marathoner, Linnea

With your taper coming up it is a good time to focus on your body care work as you lead up to the race. 

Here is a video series which highlights foam roller workouts. If you don't have a foam roller you can use a bottle wrapped in a towel.
