Did you ran the Cambridge Half yesterday?

How are you? Still buzzing and telling everyone that you ran it? Already googling which event you want to do next or already focused on your training plan again? Or more: cool I did it, it was great and a special experience but honestly, I’m not 100% sure about this running hype. Either way, congratulations you did something amazing. Only 1.5% of the British population ran a half marathon, marathon or did a triathlon! Be proud of yourself!!!

How is your body doing? Sore, stiff, not ready to climb stairs yet? A sports massage would now be the perfect reward for you and your body.

Soreness: You should feel it by know: DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) kicks in 24 to 48 hours after you have completed an unusually hard workout. And believe me, running 13 miles is quite a challenging workout no matter if you’re a competitive athlete or a recreational runner. A sport massage promotes relaxation and circulation and decreases muscle soreness. It helps your body heal in a natural healthy way.

Active recovery: Often you’re not really in the mood to do any physical activities after such a long run. Let the massage therapist do the necessary work for you!. The different techniques used during a sports massage will warm up your muscles and stretch them out. Not only your hamstrings and quads, but your low back, calves, plantar fascia, and hip flexors too so that you’re quickly ready again for your next adventure.

Overuse Injuries: There’s a good chance that your training for the Half Marathon put more stress on your body than you think. Maybe you have a little knee pain, a sore lower back or a niggle in your shine. A massage therapist can assess these issues, give you relief and support you with rehabilitation and strengthening. We can give you leads and tell you what you have to pay attention too so that you’ll enjoy your next event even more.

The week after is the best moment to reward your body with a massage tailored to your needs. Give me a call or send me a text to book an appointment. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
