Foam rolling and rumbler rolling: the best. Do it religiously, it works. Do it before stretching, not the other way around.

When I started CF I couldn't walk the day after my first WOD. It sounds crazy but to me the best thing is to warm that muscle back up. Even if you can't do the full workout go for a walk or do part of the workout. I swear it feels better when you are working it a little again.

Wal-Mart carries Epsom salt with the peppermint already in it. It's over by the beauty products and it makes you feel great!

Sweat is just your fat crying!

Go to Walmart and buy Epsom Salt (it's over there by the first aid stuff) and soak in a tub with very warm to hot water....best stuff ever for after WOD's :-)

The only reason I'm going to keep my 24hr fitness membership is so that I can go there and use the hot tub, sauna, and steam room. Yesterday we did overhead lunges, wall balls, and farmers carries... today we did double-unders and snatches. HAH! Yeah I couldn't get to full depth in my squat, my legs were just too trashed from yesterday. So I'll be heading to 24hr later to steep in the hot tub.

Also nice to after snowboarding! See?? Big corporate gyms are good for some things... haha

Foam Rollers are great! They really loosen up muscles, and I have found them particularly helpful for legs. We also have one of the Rumble Rollers - they are "Wicked Good"! In addition, a warm bath with epsom salts and a bit of peppermint oil will work wonders. The Crossfit coach recommended the bath, and the massage therapist said to add the peppermint oil. I found bath salts that had both, and it does work.

My husband buys this stuff from the chinese herbal shop called Zheng Gu Shui (not sure if that is right spelling, but ask for "bone setting solution").

It is amazing. We just started crossfit and after our intro workout I hurt for 4 days, this stuff was the only thing that helped me be able to move!

On Tuesday I did my easier version of "Morrison" in 24 min 19 sec. (Not bad for so long out of the game.)

50-40-30-20 and 10 rep rounds of:
Wall ball shots,
Jump rope
Kettlebell swings, 15 pounds free weight

I was sore yesterday, but today, when I'm supposed to be doing

Five rounds for time of:
45 pound Deadlift, 12 reps
45 pound Hang power clean, 9 reps
45 pound Push jerk, 6 reps

I can't do it this morning because my thighs are so sore from all that squatting between the wall balls and kettlebell swings I can't get down to do a deadlift. I was out for so long my legs are freaking out.

I gotta get the front of my thighs to loosen up. I've been stretching for two days, doing gentle yoga twice a day, I've walked and rested, taken a hot bath, and it doesn't wanna give. I'm not in constant pain or anything, my thighs are just so sore that it hurts to squat down and when I'm going from sitting to standing or vice versa. Any advice?
