Q: When is it the best time to get a massage; how many days to wait before resuming on the bike? – K. Trevizo
A: If you have a good massage therapist, there’s no reason to wait between training, racing and massage. I get massage on a regular basis at home and just plan them at the end of the day when my training is done. During stage races like Titan Desert, I get recovery massages after every stage. Your therapist should be able to adjust your massage based on what you need at the moment. If you have a therapist who does not understand this, then it’s time to find someone else.
