Everything hurts… but a great reminder…

So glad to report that I made it to 2 WODs in a row (Monday and Tuesday) and I am SORE! and everything hurts!  It’s amazing how 2 months off could make me so out of shape.  And I was still working out at home, but I guess not at the same intensity and I wasn’t doing the same WODs.  

Yesterday’s WOD was a tough one for me and my legs were already sore from Monday’s WOD.  And there were times during the WOD where I just wanted to stop and I felt like I was on the verge of throwing up, although that could have been my mind thinking of a way out of the WOD.. hehe… 

But I kept going.. I may not have been as fast as I’d like but I kept going. 

And that’s one thing that Crossfit reminded me.  You do what you can, you push yourself as hard as you can, you may not be able to give 100% and maybe you can only give 95%, but you keep going.  You don’t stop, you don’t quit!

And each step of the way, there’s someone there to push you to keep going, no let’s anyone stop or give up.

It’s all coming back to me now. 

This is why I love Crossfit 🙂

I’m back… feels like day 1

I finally decided to renew my Crossfit membership at Sublime.

I was trying to stay on top of my PiYo (beachbody) workouts and I do enjoy them but I just couldn’t stay motivated.  And working out at home was tough because I struggled with the standard bar and the lack of plates.

It was tough to pay the entire year up front but I’m sure once I start going regularly, I’ll know it was the right decision.

But I’m nervous… I’m hoping to make it to tonight’s 7pm class.  And I feel like it’s my first class all over again.  I’m debating whether I should just pick up where I left off and continue with the Building program (Olympic lifting) or if I should move to the Foundation program first.  We’ll see what the coaches recommend.

I feel like I’ve lost all progress I’ve made, because I simply didn’t keep up with my workouts the past few weeks.

Life/work just got busy.  And I had to tell myself that it was important to step back from the workouts just so that I could have a bit of down time.  I feel guilty about pushing my workouts to the side and I know it’s not an excuse (period), so I’m here to try again.  

I am going to have to remind myself that I won’t be as strong as I used to be, and I won’t have the technique perfected, it’s like I’m starting over and just need to be patient with myself.

Now I just need to let my husband know that I went ahead and renewed my membership.  He’s always been very supportive of what I want to do, I just don’t think he’ll be a huge fan of the price tag.  hehe..

I’ll just tell him it’s an early birthday present to myself 🙂
