As much as I complain about the pain and the bruises, secretly I love feeling this sore. I call it sadistic pain or sadistic soreness. It signifies that I’ve worked hard enough to get a response from my muscles, which doesn’t happen every day.
CrossFit Competitions are guaranteed to get you sore, due to the fact of the work performed in such a short amount of time.
While it sucks not to be able to walk very well or lift your arms very high, there’s something about the pain that is extremely satisfying…

I feel the same way about my bruises from Muay thai kickboxing.
