So everything in moderation.

By July 28, 2017Instafeed

So everything in moderation. 2-a-days, absurd amounts of coffee, late nights, stress and the lack of some key elements leads down a very sketchy path. It was Tuesday the 17 I had just finished my Wendler 5/3/1 Deadlift cycle for week 2 and then jumped right into a pretty intense metcon which involved running and deadlifts. At the end I was laid up on the floor just wanting to sleep. That had never happened to me before. By the time I got home I felt worse. By the time I got to the ER I was pretty concerned. At the time they said it was just severe dehydration coupled with a sinus infection I didn't know I had. Flash forward over a week later and I'm sitting the hospital bed after a week of steady degradation to my health. It's like my body said "enough, you've been driving me into the ground and I'm turning the skids on you". And forced me to get the rest I suppose I badly needed. Granted I could do without the Pneumonia it's turned into, I can still see how I contributed to the situation. Drinking coffee before workouts, not taking water during workouts because you're trying to see if you can push your body without it, forgoing a balanced diet for low carb high protein but you leave out the heavy vegetables part that you need for it to work properly as a diet. So many things I've either been cavalier about or plain foolish. It will be interesting to see how I take this experience and apply it to how I train moving forward. At any rate thought some of you guys might get something from this. If anything just to take a moment more often than once a week for yourself to dedicate to healing and making sure your body has what it needs. Safe training. @crossfitjournal @crossfit
