The girl (or woman ... I'm always confused about what to call a 25-30 year old female) who gave me the massage was GREAT!!! Michael has been to her several times and she's also a runner! Not just an average runner, but a runner who runs half-marathons and marathons all the time, so I really felt like she knew just what my legs needed. It felt great ... when it was over!!! It hurt like a Banshee!!! But it was good to get a few of the knots worked out, especially in my calves.
I use my Trigger Point Performance Roller (you can read more about it HERE) before and after every run, and then in the evening before I go to bed ... along with stretching. So it's not like my sore leg muscles never get any attention. But it was nice to have someone who totally understands runner issues work on my legs. I was only there for a half-hour, but we talked about running and training the whole time - pretty cool.

I think I'll try it again in the near future. I can really see why so many runners use massage therapy for recovery ... it really helped with recovery! And my legs felt magical the next day. Have a good one!
... be great today!
