Getting to the finish line
Sometimes, the winner is the person who simply makes it to the starting line. But it’s not always so easy… especially as a CrossFitter. When you train as hard as we do, it’s easy to end up overtrained, worn out, injured, or just simply burned out. So how hard is too hard? How much is too much? When is it time to rest? When do you listen to the aches and pains and actually choose to do something about them?
Getting to the starting line means being responsible about your training… scaling when appropriate; substituting out movements that make painful areas more painful; taking days, weeks, months off; resting, sleeping, drinking water, recovering; seeking out therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists when necessary. A solid training plan includes being as responsible about recovery as you are about your training. If you are, you’ll continue to make it to the starting line, year after year after year…
What are your secrets, the rules you live by to keep yourself fresh and healthy? To keep yourself strong and ready to fight another day?
