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.
