Sickness

It seems like everyone is sick. The old adage of “I’ll sweat it out” is a myth. Working out increases your body temperature (which is already elevated) and promotes inflammation. Working out will wear down your immune system, not make it better. Your body is trying to fight something off, so don’t make it weaker in the process.

And more importantly, the rest of us don’t want what you have. Sharing barbells and med balls is the quickest way to spread infection at a gym.

If you’re sick, please stay home. Rest up, stay hydrated, gets lots of sleep and load up on vitamin D.

      You are the reason that I am going Ron! It is nice to know at least one person at these things. I am doing my Cert 1 in Toronto in two weeks. Then I am back to Toronto to do the Cross Fit Kids two weeks after my Cert 1. I am actually kinda excited!!!

    have cancelled 2 days in a row becuase of illness – although it almost killed me since this is the first time I’ve had to cancel since I started 1 1/2 ago 🙁 But Kevin’s reminder was very timely as I laid in bed this morning psyching myself up to go to work so I could justify going to Crossfit!! Worse than being a little kid I guess!

    1. Shannon

      Omg, I can so relate to what you are saying. For the last 5 days, I have had to lay in bed and rest. It is driving me crazy mainly because I have had to miss out on Crossfit. I hope you feel better. Today is the first day I am attempting a workout. See you at the gym when we are both healthy and rested 🙂

    Those L-sits were plain ugly. I did whatever I could to do them but ended up tuck-sitting half the time. The inconsistency bugged me but I did the time in either way.

    Congrats to all involved in this endeaver.
    Here is something that I was told many years ago, by a very smart man in his late 80’s,
    these are words to live by;
    “We are only on earth for such a short time then we are a memory.
    Make the world a better place when you leave, then when you got here.
    To do this, make a difference in a child’s life.
    Your memory will live on for generations to come”

    So a big hats off to anyone getting involve with CrossFit Kids!
