I'm exhausted. There is no other way to describe it. I did the CrossFit Open workout on Friday night. It was only a 13 minute workout, but I went hard. Lots of deadlifts and wall balls were part of the workout, and my back is still a bit torched.
On Saturday, I skied harder than I have all year, leading a group of hard charging 8 year olds all day. After a warm-up run on easy terrain, every run we did was in the trees or on steep bumps. My calves are still sore.
Sunday was a rest day. We took my daughter back to Syracuse after her spring break. I drove some, napped some, and I wish I'd napped more.
Last night, I did CrossFit again. This was a simple workout - 9 sets of squats followed by 10 x 30 seconds of burpees. And, today, I've just got nothing.
I simply ache deep in my muscles, in my bones, and all I want to do is sleep. Yet, somewhere in the back of my brain, I keep hearing a voice telling me to do CrossFit again tonight. I think I'm strong enough to ignore that voice though.
I want to pick up my wife after work, nap on the way home, eat some dinner and go to bed. I honestly hate to admit that. But, it's the way things go sometimes. I am not in control here, and it's easy to imagine making myself sick by pushing too hard.
So, tonight, I'm gonna take a zero, and hope I feel better tomorrow.
