Getting Back to CrossFit Training After Being Sick

So, right after the Turkey Challenge CrossFit competition, I got sick. I missed Thanksgiving and was in bed most of the weekend. I also missed 4 days of CrossFit Training, which is right before another major CrossFit competition I have coming up, the 2022 Legends Championship at CrossFit Mayhem in Cookeville, Tennessee.

Now, I have to get back to CrossFit Training, and I’m hoping I’ve learned some things.

Tips for CrossFit Training After Being Sick

  • Don’t push getting back to the gym. The gym and the training will be there.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Sleep more.
  • Try to keep eating. You don’t want to lose too much weight.
  • Maintain a positive mental attitude.
  • Stay busy; it’ll take your mind off the fact you’ve missed CrossFit training

I Have Severe Problems…

Last night, I got food poisoning.  I was up all night in the bathroom in violent outbursts.  I haven’t been sick this bad in about 4 years.  It’s funny how you forget how horrible it is.

Anyways, I missed my morning CrossFit class and am debating about going this evening. I know I shouldn’t.  My workout will be crap.  But all I’ve done is lay around in bed all day, drinking gatorade and eating crackers.  My steps are under 2000.  I feel like a complete bum.

I probably won’t go.  But it’s such a good one it’s tempting.  Instead, I’ll just do two in one day on Tuesday probably.  Because I have problems.  Severe problems….Anyone else like me?
