Well, I did sign up for the CrossFit Open this year, as I have most years since I started CrossFit. And the one time I didn’t sign up for the Open, I still did all the workouts at my affiliate. But this year, I’ve been ill. And not the kind of ill I could ignore to sneak in a workout.
For the first time since I started participating, I have left a workout incomplete, unscored. I don’t like it!
But life doesn’t always just give me what I like. My life would no doubt be very different if it did. I didn’t end up completing my 10 miles last week, though I tried very hard with a 4 mile run on Monday (the holiday) and a 3 mile the very next day. But my body is just not done being sick.
My aunt had a similar sickness running from Thanksgiving to Christmas. All kinds of symptoms, just coming one on top of another. I don’t think I’m fully through it yet, but I’m through it enough to get back to the office. More’s the pity.
Now I’m facing the possibility that I might miss the next one and I’m just pleading with my body to hurry up and finish off the invaders so we can do 22.2!
