Something we were discussing at last nights Lululemon design meeting was the pain that comes along with CrossFit. The design meeting was comprised of 3 crossfitters, a dancer, a personal trainer, a figure skater, a yoga instructor and a runner. The meeting was run by 4 lululemon reps, all which have experienced CrossFit.
Post meeting discussions revolved around the pain that’s involved in CrossFit, and what was the ‘newbies’ question; when does the pain stop? The answer, never. The craziest thing is that you get used to being sore, and actually enjoy the painful feeling. It’s a strange sickness, I’m completely aware of that.
The funniest pain was the bathroom pain. Yes, trying to get to the toilet after a good wod. You’ve gotta brace yourself, lower a quarter of the way down, and commit to the plop. ha! I made a joke about it, and their jaws dropped, they thought they were alone in their suffering. Not true…every crossfitter has suffered with bathroom pain.
Today’s WOD: Cinderblock Fran – I don’t have much equipment so I’ll be thrustering a cinderblock I found out back and doing pullups on the rings. Should be interesting.
