no words to describe

WOD: I chose to do 21-15-9, OHS, DL

I started with Rx'd weight

My back cramped up bad. Kept dropping weight, but back was still acting up. Jason said to call it a day and listen to my body because we don't want to hurt ourselves. Thank you Jason for making me stop because I would have kept going and probably severely hurt myself.

Here is where the back problem stemmed from:

On Friday we had cleans and pullups. On my cleans (which was a very heavy weight for me)on the way down I would get lazy and round my back. Jason is always on my case for this and now I see why. I injured my back from this and aggravated it when trying to do deads tonight. I was in pain over the weekend but felt like it would go away just like some of my other Crossfit aches. In the back of my mind I knew Jason was right and just continued to be lazy. I can assure you this will never happen again because it is too painful to have to go through again. I am very upset with myself! The only positive thing I can find about the situation is that now I know better and have learned my lesson. Sometimes it takes a major mistake to learn your lesson for good!

Breakfast: eggs, grapes, AB

Lunch: chicken, almonds

Dinner: When I tell you I was upset with my performance I meant it. When I get upset enough I don't eat. Usually Rob forces me to eat, but he was at class tonight so I sat around the house and was mopey. I did have a larabar and some tea.

Hopefully I can do tomorrow's WOD. I just want to scream! So disappointed! I let myself down and that is the worst person to let down...yourself. I'll get over it. I am in major need of Spring Break and time for myself. I've put myself on the back burner for too long! It's time to focus and pay attention!


  1. no worries girl- you know what to do (or not to do) for the future- don't beat yourself up on this. Stuff like this needs to happen soemtimes to get the lesson across for us- I am a hard headed slow learner, so I know what you mean.

  2. Don't beat yourself up. Let this be a lesson. Every time you start rounding your back on the way down remind yourself of how you felt tonight.

    i'm going to miss you this week. :( :( :(
