The Trials of Aging & CrossFit

We all know that aging sucks.

I’ve never met someone who enjoys getting older every day.

When you CrossFit, aging will get everyone eventually.

Last weekend, I did a CrossFit Competition at CrossFit SOCO. It was tame compared to many CrossFit competitions I’ve done. But, I now have to recover two days, whereas when I was younger, I would have been good to work out again on Monday.

For me, it’s usually always something with CrossFit — either a tweak here or a strain there.

Already in 2022, I’ve been battling a right shoulder issue. I think it’s because I’ve been snatching more than usual.

Now, my leg hurts from that CrossFit competition.

It’s all incredibly frustrating.

The days I wake up and am 100% are few and far between.

For masters’ athletes, it’s about the rest, taming the volume, and being smart with your recovery.

I’ve being smart — only doing active recovery when I need it.

But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck.
