I am curious as to how much massage speeds recovery? Would you say it reduces recovery time by 30-40% compared to athletes who use no form of massage?
Massage isnt available to me so my only methods of recovery are contrast showers (once a day) and tempo. Should I adjust the frequency/intensity of my workouts to relfect this?
I did speed and weights yesterday (it was an awesome session) but I feel really cooked today. I do not think I will be recovered enough by tomorrow to run hills and do more weights.
If I had access to massage this morning and did tempo tonight running hills tomorrow would be no problem.
Just wondering if any of you guys have factored this into your training schedule? I am thinking about tempo tonight and taking tomorrow off. Run hills/weights on Sunday.
