Maybe it’s because I haven’t really sprinted since I was in High School, but holy F*CK my legs are still sore from last week. My groin area on both legs is still super sore. I’ve been stretching them out every day, and that is incredibly uncomfortable, and doesn’t seem to be doing much other than torture myself for a few minutes.
The most difficult part, aside from walking or getting up out of bed, is squatting. And in case you are new to CrossFit, there are usually a few squats in the workouts. Like last week, we did back squats two days after the sprints (as seen above). Finding the bottom of my squat has never been this uncomfortable. I thought I’d be fine by today for sure, but not even close. And today, there were a few squats, actually, over 60 in the warm up, then 100 back squats in the work out, oh and a 1 mile run and some push presses for good measure. The run was uncomfortable, but manageable, the push presses were fine, but mother f*ck*r the bottom of those back squats felt like there was some little man down there, stabbing me with screwdrivers in my inner thighs, which forced me to shoot up early, and get yelled at by Koski to go deeper.
The insult to injury came, when the 30 minute clock ran out, and I still had 15 to go. I got to stop, get in the group shot, then walk back to the bar and finish up while (most) everyone else was putting their gear away. The plus side, is that misery does in fact love company. Phil was right there with me, suffering the same fate from the sprints. So we both finished in OT, and that made me feel just a little better.
