CrossFit: When a CrossFit Recovery Workout Turns Into a Workout

I wanted to do a run after my regular workout, and I was thinking an 800 m run would

suffice.

Well, there’s a workout I have been wanting to do all week that is 2 rounds of a 400 m run and 21 thrusters (a front squat into a push press) at 65 lbs.

Why not do this one, I thought.

Not the best idea. Even though I love thrusters, after DT yesterday (a CrossFit Hero workout that involves deadlifts, hang power cleans, and push jerks at heavy weights), it wasn’t the best idea. Luckily, it was a short workout.

3 Lessons Learned from Recovery Workouts

  1. Make sure your recovery workout is just that: a recovery
  2. Listen to your body: don’t overdo it
  3. Make it light, easy, and fun

The best part about working out is how you feel afterwards. Enjoy the work, but then celebrate the accomplishment!
