I’m not sure how it happened but around May of 2014, I stopped doing Crossfit. Not that I had lost interest in training, the methodology or the people at the gym. I guess I just needed a break and try some new things, and new things that turned out to be old things, like starting badminton again.
Over the past couple of months I’ve been struggling with some minor injuries and aches here and there, and training hasn’t been going the way I’d like it to. So I decided to add Crossfit back in, to make sure I have some strength work on the schedule too.
The box I used to go to relocated further from the city and going there wasn’t very practical for me. Meanwhile, a box had opened up right around the corner from our office (which is a 5 minute bike ride from home, so still very close by). I emailed the owner, jumped in on a class and enrolled right away.
So far, I’m really happy to be back at it. And it’ cool to see that I’ve still got some of the movements (squats and deadlifts for days) while other movements seem to be lost forever (medicine ball to the face, 4 times in a workout :)). Good times.
