I managed to go seven days straight to crossfit last week. On my last day yesterday, after my regular strength WOD (thrusters found my max was 95#, chin ups, bench presses 90#) which I started exhausted, I added my usual extra credit which is 2.5k row, 150 situps, and 50-20"box jumps.
I've been doing this extra credit to spur more weight loss. I was official 20 lbs down as of Sunday.
Back to the extra credit, somewhere around jump 35, I fell off the box and twisted my knee hard.
Dazed I kept going.
Then after we got home, I crashed... hard.
Still flu-ish and feeling awful today.
Result? I missed crossfit today.
Two questions to myself:
How is it I managed to make sure my kiddos got a flu shot, but never made mine a priority?
Second, is it worth it to push yourself when you are less than 100% and know it--only to crash and burn and not be able to push at all?
I am hoping the rest will work and I feel well enough to go to crossfit tonight.
I am coveting the 300 air squats and 150 ring rows my husband got to do today for our crossfit gym's WOD!
...And no, I am not kidding!
