When should you schedule your massage?
Look at your training schedule and note the dates of long runs, key workouts, and races. Schedule your massages around these targeted dates. Schedule your Pre-Race Massage 3-4 days before your race and your Post-Race Massage 1-3 days after your race. Schedule sports massages throughout your training and racing period for the best results. Also, drink lots of water and stretch between massage treatments
How will I feel after my massage?
Massage relaxes and lengthens the contractile fibers of muscles, so expect to feel different. There is a constant feedback system of communication between our muscles, joints, and our brains. Since massage impacts the muscles and the joints they cross, this feedback will be altered giving the athlete new and different post-massage messages. This can be disconcerting for some athletes so it is best to schedule massages 2-4 days before a race or a hard workout. Athletes should allow time for one or two easy runs or workouts before a hard effort after massage. This allows time for muscles, joints, and the communication system to re-adjust.
