Team Effort

A little throwback Row
Tuesday (Dec 16) – I know, you are saying
to yourself, Tuesday? What happened to hitting up the Nooner on Monday
@CrossFitCanuck? Well sometimes life happens and the best laid plans go right
down the pipes. Somehow Monday just got away from me, even though I was pretty
good with my diet (it’s tough around this time of year with holiday treats
everywhere you turn). I ended up in a meeting that just kept going and going.
It was tough because a bunch of eyes were opened so in the long run it will be
a really big win. Still, I was really bummed that I didn’t manage to complete a
goal and with some more crossed wires the Warm-up for the #530Crew wasn’t what
I was hopping for. Still, another learning experience.
Flashback – My last year playing Men’s
Slo-Pitch with the Blue Rams I had a pretty bad injury to my knee while I was
trying to beat out a play at first. When the swelling had subsided I was sent
to get an MRI and while they determined that I had a small tear of the patellar
tendon, the results were inconclusive because of swelling. All this occurred
with a bunch of extra weight and before I discovered CrossFit. Still, since the
Texas Cycle and my attempt to enjoy life below 90 degrees, something just hasn’t
been right. I know what I think it is (I hope I’m wrong), but it was super aggravated
during Squat Therapy. Anyway, to make a long story short, there is another MRI
in my future (just waiting on the actual date).
Morning Workout
18 minutes Elliptical
10 minutes Recumbent Bike
So after a bit of a long winded intro, this
is where the ‘Teamwork’ portion comes in. This journey isn’t just about me
losing weight and getting healthy, it’s a giant collaborative effort. Tavia
gave me a great pep talk, reiterating some things I may have forgotten during a
stressful stretch. There has been a stream of encouragement that has come in
from various places that have reminded me that even when times are tough I have
a solid Team behind me. And, last but not least is @SavannahJessie, who made
stupendous efforts to get me out of bed and to the gym. It’s time to get back
into good habits.

This is starting to be a broken record.
Week 5, Day 2 for what feels like the 1,000,000th time. I don’t care
if I have to break into the box, this week I will get this series done and get
moving on. Like Tavia reminded me, with everything going on, I shouldn’t be
sacrificing my health or my focus regardless of what’s going on. So while it
looks like I will be 1-for-3 on Nooners this week (Friday is the IT Lunch), I will
be is, I will be working.
Keep you fingers crossed that everything
works out tomorrow.
