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

Is Lackadaisical the Word?

Ever since I’ve been sick, I’m having trouble pushing myself to do anything.

First off, I’m still not 100%.  I keep coughing.  And occasionally blowing my nose.

During all the WOD’s this week, it took all I had just to make it through them.

Today I thought I was okay, but I came out too strong and had to slow down my pace.

I still beat everyone in my class.  But it wasn’t my best effort.

I’ve been unmotivated to lift.  Especially heavy this week.

Work has sucked.  I just don’t want to work anymore.

Chores around the house.  You name it.  I don’t want to do it.

Being sick and doing anything is tough work.  I’m hoping this weekend to take it easy and let my body recover.  And next week hopefully I’ll feel up to my training.
