As a CrossFitter, you have aches and pains. You’re sore. Your mobility is compromised. Your shoulder hurts. You have a pulled muscle. You name it.
For me, it’s something different every week: shoulder, calf, bicep, knee, elbow, a random huge bruise, etc.
But it’s always something
Which I’ve accepted.
I’ll always have something tweaked. Something sore or strained. Something tight. Some movement I have to back off of because of that tweak. One day I’ll do strict pull-ups because my shoulder is off. Another day I’ll row instead of run because my leg feels off. Or I’ll go light on dead lifts because we just did 30 dead lifts in a WOD.
Sometimes I’ll think Why do I put up with this? Why deal with this? Why?
Because CrossFit is my addiction. It’s my outlet. It’s my passion. It’s what I do. It’s a part of me.
Because of that I’ll deal with anything.
