I guess you can say when I get going with something I become slightly obsessed and will fight to the end until I have what I want. That can be a good thing, I'm definitely not a lazy person, but it can also bite me in the ass once in awhile.
I didn't do one thing specifically to hurt myself and it isn't even overuse but I didn't allow enough recovery. I will always learn this the hard way because I am incredibly stubborn, but as I sit on my couch knowing I am on day two of four rest days, I am happy it's only four.
My intention for this week was to back off the weight and take an easy, low intensity week. I probably wouldn't know how to actually take it easy, so being sidelined is good for me.
I think rest and recovery is the hardest part about crossfit. I always feel like I am missing out if I take a day off but we all know better than that. I am slowly learning that my four days of rest won't set me back but pushing through pain definitely will.
So as we push through the grueling workouts and set some strength records, remember to allow your body to recover once in awhile. Get a good nights sleep, eat clean and take the intensity down one day to focus on form. One day I will take my own advice :)
