So this week I went to crossfit three straight days. My first two days were HARDCORE but I did scale it some but completed both WODS with a great effort. But yesterday, I hit a WALL. The WOD wasn't even a hard WOD...but I think I was just tired and didn't know it?
The WOD was to run a 300, do 3 Squat Snatches at 80% (I did less than 50% weight) and 3 OH Squats and 24 knee to elbow sit-ups (5 ROUNDS). Round 1-3 were great (running plus less weight kept me being pretty speedy) but about halfway through the 4th round I hit a wall, where I felt a little tired.....wait, ALOT OF TIRED. I even thought if I kept going at the same pace, I might get sick. I had to completely slow down and get myself on a much slower pace to finish. I DID FINISH---but I was WORN OUT!!!
I was WORN OUT! SORE! TIRED! But also so happy to have finally be a place that I could quite worrying about the new additions!! I had reached this place earlier this week that I was finally not going to worry about the additions ANYMORE!! I AM SIX WEEKS POST OP! ALL IS GOOD NOW!! Like I said, I have been soo sick of worrying about every little thing about the healing process (which I assume is normal--esp when they cost so much $$$). I was happy to have the freedom to be me again; to go hard, to sweat like crazy, and to push myself. FREEDOM!!! No more worrying!!
|8.5mile bike ride this morning|
THEN TODAY!!!! This morning I got up and rode my bike and did some back squats and ab work (took it easy on the chest today after 3 WODS). But after I showered, I noticed a greenish bruise (very light) on one of the additions. I immediately thought it was nothing to worry about but thought I would call the office just to get a confirm that it was nothing to worry with. But they said the dr wanted to see me TODAY. :-( YIKES!! So WORRY WART was back!
Of course, I was starting to think I must have gone hard too quickly this past week and had caused something to go wrong!!! :-(. I got to the the dr office...the dr saw me walk in and he got me right in before everyone else for quick examine! He immediately smiled and said---JUST A BRUISE!!! YAE!!! He actually pointed to Todd and said it was a "marriage bruise" HAHA!!
He then did a full examination of my healing process and gave me the green light to compete in my next CrossFit Competition (scaled division since I am still in a bit of recovery mode) on June 21. He said there were no signs of CC, bottoming out, seroma......which have all been some of my worries with having OVER THE MUSCLE implants. He was very pleased with HIS work and my healing!!! And he told me I can have freedom from worrying!
His words were "If it feels funny, it's ok. If it hurts, stop! If no pain or no swelling, then I am good!"
