For some reason I was tired today… not during my workout so much, but definitely after. These next few weeks are going to be a little lighter and less in volume, so that we can really push the intensity on the CrossFit Open workouts. Sometimes I fear that resting more will make me feel less ready for a hard workout, but I do trust this is the best way to go about it. I have worked very hard to get to this point and there is no sense in overdoing things when I should be focused mostly on doing my best when it really counts, and recovering well.
If I’m being completely honest, eating my best has been the biggest struggle for me lately. I have been taking a lot of ice baths and getting more sleep, taking my fish oil and vitamins, but not eating chocolate or the homemade tortilla on the bottom of my Cafe Rio salad has been hard for me… which in turn makes me feel like I’m failing. However, I am failing only according to my own standards that I have set in my mind. If that makes sense? Anyway, I’m just going to keep trying to focus on who I want to be and what is most important to me right now. And, I finished off the chocolate almonds today, so as long as I don’t buy more at TJ’s, I should be just fine 😉
