I wanted to work out, but I didn’t want to overdo it at Crossfit. Last minute, I was like, shit.. I should go to Power Yoga! It was an AWESOME idea. It felt SO GOOD.
Not only that, but.. my obliques were sore for 3 days afterward. WHAT? My SIDES? The things I keep saying have been the only thing to not really change much from CF.. My mid section was actually sore and the muscles were worked. The only way I feel my stomach muscles from CF is if I go in and do a bunch of GHD sit ups (50+) and well, I was completely impressed.
It was a great class, and I left drenched. I’m still always shocked that I can go into a Power Yoga class and for the most part, hold all of the poses. The stuff that requires strength and balance, I can actually do! This is totally because of Crossfit, because before, I never would’ve been able to do that.
Not only that… but I was having a SHIT day on Thursday.. one of those days where you question everything and then wonder WTF is wrong with you.. that was me. Negative Nancy. Terrible mood, cranky, on the verge of tears all day long.. THAT’S why I didn’t go to CF! I remember now.. we had rope climbs that day, and whenever I’m in a bad mood and throw in rope climbs, I cry. It’s almost guaranteed. Yesss.. I remember now.
So I went to yoga. Just, went in and did it. By the end of my hour there, I had forgotten I was having a shitty day, and I left drenched and feeling completely awesome. WOW.. Later on, I realized I was no longer having a bad day and it was just one of the most remarkable feelings. And an epiphany. “I need to do that more often.”.
I’ve said it before, that I’d like to incorporate more yoga into my CF routine. Like 3-4 days a week of CF and 2-3 days a week of Power Yoga. I need to make this happen, I need to find the time. It was heaven, and it will definitely improve me in ways I can’t do with crossfit alone.
In fact.. I just registered for my class today at 4p. So now I HAVE to go. Thank you blog, for keeping me accountable. 🙂
