Frustrations With CrossFit Injuries

Hey all!

I have been completely frustrated with CrossFit injuries lately.

If you read my latest CrossFit competition post and watched my latest video on it, you would have seen how I strained my tendon. I had to do many sessions of muscle activation and massage, and it still is tight and weak.

Then, the following week, I had a rib head pop out, which is basically a rib out of place. Enter multiple chiropractic appointments and grunting through the pain during training.

My massages and chiropractor appointments hurt. None of them feel good. In essence, I’m paying for pain.

Which is what you do with CrossFit, too.

I’m really frustrated with my CrossFit injuries, and doubt and quitting creep in quite frequently.

I’d like to say I have the answers, but I don’t. I don’t even have any words of wisdom.

I’m giving my new CrossFit Games training till the CrossFit Open 2023. If I don’t make the quarterfinals, I may give up this dream altogether.

At some point, all of this becomes not worth it.

I’m not there yet, but I do feel it’s getting closer.

I knew this journey would not be easy; but I never thought it would be because of injuries. I thought it would be because of the work.
