It's been a few days since I've blogged.... well that's because it's been a few days since I've been able to hit Crossfit. If you would have told 6 months ago when I started working out with the Crossfit group that I would actually miss getting up at 500 to go have my ass handed to me by Jerry's workouts, I would have seriously laughed at you. No, seriously. I really would have. But I have come to have an extreme like, no ok, not like, love, well ok, let's call it a love/hate relationship with Crossfit. I hate how badly sometimes it kicks my butt, but I love the group and the personalities of the people on the team. It's amazing how off I feel because I can't see them 3-4 times a week right now.
I understand, as the doctor so BLUNTLY put it, that things in my body are not as they should be right now, and this is my body's way of telling me to slow down. However, all this sittin' around "gettin better", isn't helping me reach my Crossfit goals. As I sit on my coach and watch another movie mindlessly I can slowly feel my sub 10 minute pro level Fran slipping away, and I worry about just how far I am going to have to back pedal to be at a point where I can complete circuits and head back on my way towards reaching my goals. With each day that involves me eating toast and gingerale and *gasp* pre-packaged Ramen noodles because I can keep them down, I hear the Zone tsk tsking me. (I'm sorry for the Ramen noodles Jerry. :( ) Is that even a verb? I'm digressing... My whole point is... well did I really have one to start with? Yeah, I guess I did. My whole point is, that although Crossfit is slightly on the crazy side, the people there are great, and I miss them tremendously right now. I'm waiting on my mono test and hoping it comes back negative, so that I can get back into the Blue Room next week. It looks like everyone has logged some serious numbers this week. Way to go! Hopefully I will be rejoining everyone soon.
