Today’s WOD was SO HARD. My arms were dead after the first 18 reps. I debated between going lighter than 75, or sticking with it. Finally I decided to suck it up and just do it.

I had to take a lot of breaks and set the bar down a lot. You know it sucks when the BURPEES are a relief. And I hate burpees.

So with my awfully hard time at CrossFit today (my first day back since wisdom teeth day), I give you the Advantages/ Disadvantages of not working out for a really long time. Or so it felt like.

ADVANTAGES:

1. Um… You get a lot of rest?

 

……. Yup.

 

DISADVANTAGES:

1. You feel like poopey the next time you work out.

2. You get tired easily throughout the day / you have ZERO energy.

3. You eat more. Like, lots more. Ice cream daily.

4. You become weak. Lifting your dog is hard.

5. You have trouble sleeping at night.

6. You are bored because you don’t have CrossFit/Running in your life.

7. You watch channels in Spanish because there’s nothing on the English ones.

8. You spend way too much time on the internet. Doing absolutely nothing.

9. You play too much Candy Crush – but still get nowhere.

10. You see other people that you work out with in public and you feel guilty.

11. You have nothing to blog about, so you feel like a failure.

12. You have dreams about running/ CrossFit because THAT’S HOW MUCH YOU MISS IT.

 

So there you go, folks. I know it wasn’t necessarily my fault that I couldn’t go to CrossFit or go run, but these are still things I experience when I don’t workout/ exercise for a while.

My conclusion is to stay active every day. Doesn’t matter how you do it, just as long as you do something!

Run on.
