Now it's Day 4 after the break and things slowly start clicking again. The first workout was an easy 6 mile run on Saturday, that felt anything but easy. Then on Sunday with the drizzle going on all day, I retreated to a one hour trainer ride with a couple of single leg drills (hard) and several 5 minute hard efforts... A nice little sweat fest. Then yesterday, the early morning calls started again with CrossFit. That felt extra rough and reminded me of my first couple of workouts when I started CF. During my hiatus, I lost all my hard earned calluses and basically start from scratch on that front. The metcon almost made me hurl and the weights just felt extra heavy. Then another run yesterday after work. It was called "zen" run and while I can't say that my mind was "zen" like, the run felt much better than Saturday. This morning another CrossFit session and while I wasn't able to back squat my former max, I wasn't far off either.
Fortunately, coach put a fairly easy week on my plan to ease back into things.
