So I just found out I inadvertently quit crossfit. I went to sign up for a class tonight (at my friend’s insistence) and it turns out my membership had lapsed.
It might be fore the best–though I hate saying that as I did legitimately enjoy it.
It was too hard on my body and I think I pushed myself too hard as I am all about competition. It left me injured for many weeks this past winter. Classes made me sore and miss out on my other workouts for several days afterward. It impacted my training for the Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon. Also, sadly, after taking all my time off with my knee injury, I have felt to self-conscious to go back.
Ironically, my running started sucking when I started crossfit last year around this time.
So I think it might be for the best that I bow out…at least for now. My running goals mean more than crossfit Rxs right now. Perhaps in the future I can try it again and see if I can find a nice balance with running and CF.
I may also try to work in some cross fit style workouts on my non-run days as those intense intervals are amazing.
So I am bidding farewell to crossfit for now. Maybe in the future, I might find my way back into ye olde cf box.
P.S. If anyone has any tips at how to do cross fit and run without killing yourself, please let me know.
I want to start off by saying how happy I am that my running legs/mojo/whatever, have finally come back. The endorphins are hitting me like a wave and I have completely forgotten what this feels like after a year of struggling through a running rough patch. It’s one of the most amazing feelings in the world! And no, I am not being dramatic. It really is. I cannot believe it has been a year since I have felt this way…so floaty and happy and awesome!
I didn’t have much of an opportunity for random acts yesterday as I was chained to my desk. Today I plan on making up for it by taking my colleague out for a quick coffee this morning to our favourite hipster coffee shop, Parlour (#94). I still can’t believe that we can get coffee this good in Winnipeg now. Boggles. My. Mind.
#93 is volunteering to help work my friend’s wedding social on Saturday. In case you forgot, wedding socials are essentially a Winnipeg tradition that helps raise money to help pay for a wedding. I am also making a key lime pie for auction at the event, but the volunteer working (essentially selling silent auction tickets and taking admission/tickets) is a new thing.
Anyway, I will leave you all to enjoy your day and read some other blogs. Stay tuned as I might need your advice as I go through my shoe collection to decide what I should donate along with my clothes that I collected from the weekend. Care to help?
