There's a soft whimper in the air this morning as I realize I must take a break from CrossFit and running. I must listen to my body, and it is telling me that it will hurt me more if I don't give it a break. The major limbs on the right side of my body are grumpy. Right arm crook of elbow says, "I will not allow you to lift anything ever again if you continue to beat me while I am down." Right leg calf muscle says, "Your track athletes are young and supple; they can bounce back quickly. You are getting old; you cannot race them like that. Please don't try to prove yourself to them; make them prove their speed to you. Be a coach, not their competition." Okay! Fine! I get the picture. I'll give you guys a break. But there is an awkward silence from one part of my body. Midsection, do you have anything to chime in? NO?!?! Okay then, maybe I have found a part of my body that could use some working out. Spring Break will be known as "Limb Break." But my "core" pays.*Photo courtesy of CrossFit Rockford. Time to plan a trip.
