Soothe sore muscles

"There’s nothing better after a tough week of training than a massage," Deena says. A good deep-muscle or sports massage (ask other runners who they go to) will help flush lactic acid out of your system, loosen tight or overworked muscles, and serve as a relaxing reward for your hard work.

Book your appointment for the end of the week so you have something to look forward to.
