The Soreness Never Goes Away with CrossFit

CrossFit Ring Muscle Ups

This morning I woke up. I’m pretty sure I have a calf strain as my right calf is tight. And my shoulders are sore.

I gave up long ago trying to decipher what it’s from. It doesn’t matter; I’m going to do the same movements again no matter what.

After three years of doing CrossFit, you get used to the constant soreness CrossFit causes. You expect to wake up and feel some part of your body sore, tight, or overall off. You deal with it (after all, it’s your fault you’re sore). You complain and moan, which doesn’t really help. You hobble around sometimes. Picking up items on the floor becomes painful. All you want to do is sit and rest.

However, there are days (like today) where I get tired of the soreness from CrossFit. I just would like to wake up and not be sore. Just every once in a while. To be honest, I can’t remember my life when I wasn’t like this. I can’t remember how I felt every morning before I started CrossFit training. I have no idea what people feel like who don’t choose to beat themself up constantly feel like.

Soreness from CrossFit is a lifestyle that sometimes I don’t want. I would like to wake up one day and experience what it feels like. That would be something.

Your Body Will Do Things You’ve Never Dreamed of…

No part of me wanted to work out today.

I’m sore still from my competition.  My arms (especially my forearms) are sore.  I have odd bruises here and there that if you press hurt.  When I squat my legs scream in agony.

Still, I went.  I back squatted.  Heavy.  The WOD was assault bike, toes to bar, and clean and jerks.  Heavy.heavy-lifting

Three-fourths of the way through I thought I got this.  And it was surprising to me that I did.

Here did I realize how powerful your body is and how we constantly underestimate ourselves and tell ourselves we can’t when in reality we can.  Your thoughts are incredibly powerful.  They tell you you can’t or you can.  Grab a hold of these and be in control.  Believe in yourself.

Because you can carry the world.  And you will.  And your body will follow.
