I am off to the Emerald Isle on Friday for the Dublin marathon. I have been considering getting a leg massage done beforehand. I remember reading on the previous forum some time ago, that it isn't recommended getting a full leg massage less than 3 days prior to a marathon as it tends to over-relax the muscles. Can anyone corroborate this and suggest whether they think a massage would be of any use? I would probably try and get it done tomorrow lunchtime which is a full 6 days prior to Dublin which is next Monday.
Also, if I get general support for massage here, can anyone recommend a suitable sports massage place in Central London? Well-qualified and cheap are preferable characteristics.
