when everything hurts.

Self myofascial release

I just set a PR that I have been working towards for nearly 4 years (well technically I have been working towards this goal since elementary school) but I ran a mile in 8:53!!!! It was hard to finish because I was sprinting and bawling and my shorts were riding up – but I freaking ran. Before starting Crossfit 10 weeks ago my mile average 13-15 minutes and running was hard, but I completed many 5K’s and enjoyed the challenge. My last 5K was at the end of May, the Amy Thompson run and it was decent, although my back was hurting (shocking I KNOW!) but it was here that I met my sports medicine guy who has been fixing me…the overuse stuff that’s all me, but he uses myofascial release techniques that I absolutely love. Anyway, running this mile today was a huge milestone for me and it reminded me that I cannot forgo running in my love of Crossfit. I actually like running (GASP!) and today, for the first time ever, my endurance was right up there with my mental desire to run fast. So all you Crossfit haters can suck it. My SPORT is making me better at everything!!
