I finally made it back to CrossFit Chickasaw, and I would have suffered through this WOD no matter what because it’s a small way of honoring and remembering the tragedy of 9/11. But, I honestly didn’t feel all that bad. It was a REALLY tough workout (see below), but I thought I held up well considering my experience level. I was also VERY happy with my energy level throughout the workout. I am still a little nervous with any workout because of how my energy levels have been affected to this point being on #Whole30. I think I’ve finally made the turn and my body is no longer requiring sugar for energy. I still think it wants it pretty badly, but at least it’s not withholding functionality on me as a result anymore.
I’m still getting sleepy several times throughout the day, but it’s not so overwhelming, and when necessary a 15-minute power nap usually does the trick.
