mamacita est un idota
1.) I don't speak Spanish.
2.) I am an idiot.
During yesterdays crossfit workout I used 100lbs for my deadlifts. This would be fine if we were doing only a few reps. We did 55. I know I shouldn't be doing 100lbs but I did it anyway. Near the end I could feel my back curling, and I knew I was losing my form. I tried to pretend I didn't notice, but I was even 'subconsciously' waiting until my trainer wasn't looking to do my lifts and powering them out of the way before she looked back (at this point in the workout I was only doing 5 or less at a time). Guess what?
My back hurts like hell. I had to forgo boxing tonight because I want to be able to do my W.O.D. tomorrow. I'll wait it out to see if it's an injury or just soreness. I don't think I'm broken, but I think I'm pretty damn close and it is sincerely due to my own stupidity. I don't get down on myself often but I'm pretty upset. I knew better, I know better, this shouldn't have happened.
Tonight I did one hour of hatha yoga. I explained my situation and he gave me different moves to do in places that may hurt or strain my back, like the rounded back toe touches. He also suggested I do some cow-cat in the morning what I wake up to loosen myself up for the day. I couldn't thank him enough for all of that. Afterwards I drove over to crossfit and used their foam rollers and lacrosse balls to try and work out some of the tension. So thats a warning: If you're going to be an idiot and let your form go shitty, you'll have to go embarrass yourself rolling around like a moron in front of a bunch of on ramp people. God I hope I didn't make them all think "pshh.. if she doesn't crossfit I don't wanna do crossfit".
I haven't been drinking enough water. I know this. The only time I get in my 8 cups is when I'm working out, and then I need even more. I've been dehydrated since Monday. I've even had a couple of gatorades during longer workouts and nothing much is changing. If anyone has any tips on how they manage to keep their consumption up, please let me know, thanks!
