Just a guy who found exercise late in life. I absolutely LOVE running and CrossFit. But, you'll only have to be around me for a few minutes to figure that out.

My CrossFit workout didn’t go well at all this morning. Felt winded and tired after the skill work, which shouldn’t have been THAT much of a challenge for me. The MetCon just sucked all the life out of me though. It was a combination of overhead squats and burpees. The overhead squats seemed heavy, and I was spent after doing just a few burpees. I was able to grind out and finish, but it wasn’t pretty. Between being in Las Vegas for a few days, having GI issues yesterday, and starting #Whole30 yesterday, I’m really not sure what is to blame. I’ve got a race on Sunday, so I’ll be taking a few days off to rest up for that. Hoping to run the race strong, and be back at CrossFit on Monday feeling strong!

The rest of the day was OK. I felt tired several times throughout the day, took a 15 minute power nap at one point which helped immensely.

Last two nights, I’ve been full after dinner, but still wanting to eat something. I guess that’s the cravings… Not so overwhelming at this point, but hope they don’t get worse.

Biggest craving today? Soda…
