I am on a CrossFit sabbatical
|I LOVE CrossFit but there are haters|
As my shoulder calms down ( no heavy lifting) and I await an MRI for my knee (possible torn meniscus) I am sidelined from CrossFit and running.
|Pilates Reformer Stations|
Enter...Pilates. I went to my first class this AM at Club Pilates - where we use the Reformer. Sort of looks like a scary bench for torture with pulleys, weights, bars, balls, matts, boxes.. I was told to do Reformer 1 so I could learn how it works- but well I started with 1.5. I am impressed I did that and did not jump to Reformer 3. It was 50 minutes and I can tell you 11 hours later I can definitely feel it- my knee/shoulder are not in pain. It was not boring but it was not CrossFit. The music was nice, the instructor was nice, the other people were nice... I like the sweaty box with Deej's crappy music and the energy that CrossFit brings. That is what make CrossFIt rock- the pure energy of the people. The pure energy that jacked my shoulder and knee....argh!
I am committed to staying strong so in the interim I will use my 8 Groupons and see this through.
