CrossFit: I’m About to Throw in the Towel

Two days ago, I did a CrossFit Hero Workout called Coe, a seemingly simple CrossFit WOD from looking at it:

Ten rounds of

  • 10 thrusters at 65 lbs for women (95 for men)
  • 10 ring push-ups

I finished in under 20 minutes, which is short for a CrossFit Hero Workout and didn’t think much about it — until the next day when every time I went to lift my arms over my head, it hurt.

That same day, I decided to do Flight Simulator, a Crossfit Notable workout that involves jumping a bazillion double unders. I didn’t think much about this either — until the next day and my right calf was seized up again.

Incredibly, this didn’t bother me. What bothered me was the next day when my shoulders were still sore and my right calf was even worse. It was at this moment I got completely fed up.

I can’t run. I can’t jump. And I can’t do a bazillion reps without thinking about it first. This is what is bothering me. Everything I do from now on has to be strategically planned. God, this sucks.

  1. My heart goes out to you. It’s rough when you come to the realization that you have to plan out your workout. I use to be able to do everything and anything in any capacity. Now I have to check myself so as not to get hurt the next day. I hope you feel better soon. And please don’t beat yourself up for any setbacks. It happens to the best of us.

  2. Don’t give up. You’re doing an excellent job. Remember you have to stretch before and after exercising. That’s one of the most important things people forget to do. Make sure to take a warm shower afterwards and get as much sleep as possible. Excellent post!
