**X Race-day, pre-race sports massage – someone told me these help. No personal experience. Personally I would NOT do a pre-race sports massage unless very light for some kind of warming up purpose.

HOWEVER I would and have had a sports massage 2-3 days prior to the event. Chance to ‘recover’. The idea there is that this frees up knotted muscles tissue and hence reduces internal tension/friction and also increases range of movement slightly. But remember lots of “slightly” is what we are looking for to see that PB tumble. Incremental gains.

All the suggestions are starred:

*** 3 stars. IMHO it will work

** 2 stars. It might work

* 1 star. Can’t hurt

X 1 cross. It CAN hurt if done wrong.

All 50 tips are shown here as a series of posts : https://the5krunner.com/tag/how-to-get-a-5k-pb/ or on twitter using #howtogeta5kpb. They are all SHORT-TERM tips that will work in the next week or so with varying degrees of success.
