Flexible Elen Rivas gets in some last minute practice ahead of the London Marathon this weekend


Flexible: Elen Rivas limbers up for a gruelling morning run ahead of this weekend's London Marathon

She stunned her Dancing On Ice mentors Torvill and Dean when she demanded the splits be included in her skating routine to show off her flexibility.

But Elen Rivas proved she doesn't need the ice rink to display her toned curves as she prepared for a gruelling early morning run yesterday.

The 36-year-old Spanish model put on quite a show for photographers as she limbered up by lifting her leg high over her head in a graceful move.

Athletic: The mother-of-two looked toned in her pink vest top and white shorts

Dressed in a pair of tiny white shorts, pink top and navy blue tennis visor, Elen looked incredibly athletic in her sporty outfit.

The mother-of-two is gearing up for the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday, and recently told friends she is looking forward to the 26-mile race because she is in the 'best shape of her life'.

And Elen is no stranger to the race, having completed the course in five hours 20 minutes last year.

However, she said actually running the marathon was a lot more daunting than the thought of doing so.

And stretch! Elen gets some encouragement from her trainer as she prepares for her run

Elen will be running the Virgin London Marathon in aid of the charity Wellbeing of Women, which helps save the lives of women and babies and furthers research and training into women's health.

Success: Last year, Elen ran the marathon in 5 hours and 20 minutes
