Running & Competing; 5-10k, Half/Full Marathon, Ultra
To all you runners out there, do not wait for injury to set in before getting a remedial massage, this will only affect your training and competing.
Any slight pain or discomfort is a warning sign from your body; if you deal with this when it develops or even before it develops it will help prevent injury setting in.
Pain in our body is telling us something needs attention. If we ignore that pain and continue as we are, it will not go away, it will develop to a point of affecting our training and competing. Consider the impact that also has on our mental well being when we are unable to partake in the things that help keep our minds healthy.
Regular maintenance massage is as much a part of your fitness routine as is nutrition, rest and sleep.
