Was booked into the gym this morning but cancelled it as soon as I woke up, despite the early bedtime last night my energy this morning was low.
I think there were a couple of reasons for this, firstly I knew I had a full on day at the uni teaching and then straight after work I was going out to a friend’s leaving do and secondly, today is the start of the CrossFit open. This is basically a global competition in which anyone who does CrossFit can compete against each other. The workouts are released on Friday and you have until Monday to submit your scores and then you can see where you rank globally. This year there will be 3 workouts across 3 weeks. For the last 6 years I’ve entered the open but this year due to my lack of motivation and fitness I couldn’t face doing it as I find it upsetting! My fitness is nowhere near where it used to be which is both upsetting and frustrating, I know the reasons for this but it doesn’t help me when I’m doing a workout and my score is worse than it was a few years ago. Despite what I said the other day about the event I’m doing in July. I do both CrossFit and cold water swimming simply for the joy of it, I’m not interested in competing and the CrossFit Open makes it competitive!
A new book arrived today called Decoding your Fatigue, it was recommended by another nutritionist who I respect so will take a read of it over the weekend as really want to get the answers as to why I’m so tired all the time seeing as my bloods came back as “normal”!!
Looking forward to a quiet weekend to give me time to re-group and go again next week!!
