Injured? Don’t worry about it…


Injured? Don’t worry about it…

Continuing to CrossFit while you have an acute injury can actually promote healing, Kelly Starrett told participants at a one day seminar at CrossFit Santa Cruz on November 9, 2008. Starrett is the owner of San Francisco CrossFit and a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

“You had a surgery on Friday? Take a couple of days off. See you on Monday,” Starrett said. The key is modifying the program. Grace can be done with dumbbells. If a limb is injured, don’t use it. But keep working out. It’ s best to train through and around injures. Otherwise, the “ghosts” of injuries can remain for years and negatively affect athletic performance.

No matter if you have an disabled shoulder or a bummed knee, CrossFit Moncton will work with you on what you CAN do.

    Yay! My first Duathlon! That 20k bike was tough, especially the first 10k of it. I’m pleased with my results, seeing as how I’ve only biked a total of 40k in the past 2 years.

    My time was 1:20:41 and the finish was sweet. There were 3 people in front of me and in the last 200m, I turned up the heat and sprinted by them. I came in 4th in my division and 48th overall.

    Pierre – you did awesome man! Thanks for coming out!

    Sean – CrossFit will help with your running. You’re welcome back anytime.

    Lisa, Mike, MC – Thanks for the cheering…it really helped.

    And now it’s rest time.

    I would have posted earlier, but I slept for 2 hours!! hahahaha

    Oh man, my legs a shoot now, my ass is sore and I have no energy but it was a great experience!!

    The bike run was horrible, people (at least 10) were passing me like bullets with their road bikes, but I managed to catch a few (around 6) back on the last 1k of the run.

    I am also pleased with my results seeing as I have only bike (1) 20k in the past 1.5 year. I finished 8th in the division and 71th overall.

    Thank Kevin for being my Crossfit coach, without you I would probably be still there running or biking.

    Sean – You did awesome man. Thanks for giving us the idea.

    Thanks MC, Janelle and Lisa for cheering for us! It helped a lot to have some people cheering for us when we were passing by, it kept me going.

    Now it is rest for me, I will be back at the gym tuesday. 🙂

    a few sets of 25# swings – starting back light and feeling the posture, technique more than muscling the weight up there

    1 butterscotch cookie
    1 small ice cream waffle cone + udderly divine ice cream (that is the same size as a large)
    1 huge prime rib steak
    strawberries spinach salad
    1 orange
    3 Subway sandwich (2 ham + 1 cold cut)
    1 orange
