Aw man this sucks!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Tonight I was doing a Crossfit called Angie. It is a workout I have done several times and I know it and love it. It consists of 100 pullups (or in my case reverse pushups), 100 pushups, 100 sit-ups and 100 squats.

Well I was feeling amazing and strong and was just kicking ASS and was well in line to beat the heck out of my last time... and then... on my 8th squat... I came up and POW. I felt like I had been stabbed in the back. I saw stars. I actually fell forward and just lay there for a few seconds panting in shock. I got up and stretched out a little and tried again... nope, no way.

I have hurt myself emoticon

I could count on one hand the number of times I have hurt myself working out and none of the injuries have lasted more than a few days. So I am going to rest up for a few days and hope that will take care of it!

I think I might have just overdone it Monday. I did a workout that contained a total of 240 jump squats and I feel like it's possible I got into a squat today and my body was just like NO MORE OF THIS SHT!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

It's actually not as bad as I made it sound. I can still do everything I normally do. I just have to be careful. The hardest thing is putting on pants. Maybe I will go pantsless to work tomorrow and just wear my lab coat all day emoticon

*sigh* Hope everyone out there is feeling strong and healthy and uninjured! I'm going to go eat my chili now. It smells soooo good!!!

    Oh man... that's not good. Heal quickly. There are more HIIT sprints in your future. More squats too. Hang in there.

    That sounds painful, so sorry. I hurt myself pretty good a few times when I first started SP, now I know my limits a little better! It's hard sometimes to know how hard to push, too little=no results, too hard=injuries. It's that happy balance we all look for! Hope you feel better soon!
