Good to be back at the gym

I got injured during a recent Crossfit competition and I’ve had a hard time getting back to the gym. Some of the that is due to work travel. Some of that is due to the massive wildfire smoke we’ve had in the Northwest. Some of that is due to not being able to fully do the workouts i.e. modify them to allow for the fact that I cannot do any pulling movements at the moment. Modifying is really hard and it takes away some of the joy of a Crossfit workout. I know it shouldn’t and as a coach I’ll tell people it doesn’t matter. And yet somehow I find motivation in not modding a workout. Looks like I have one more thing to work on 🙂

Anyway, good to be back. I did pushups instead of power cleans and rode the Assault Bike instead of running.

Walk

Went out for a short run. Nope. Achilles is still in pain. I walked a
bit and enjoyed the sunshine.

Injuries are no fun

It’s brutal getting old, injuries take forever to heal. The
groin/abductor pull I have is limiting my workouts as well as bugging
me in simple things like walking. I managed a light lifting routine this morning: overhead squats,
deadlifts, some other random lifting… until my leg felt bad and I
quit and stretched for a bit.

Heavy things

I lifted weights this morning, good. Still hampered by my groin/abductor pull, bad. Injuries like this are
a plague as I age. They take forever to heal.
