A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend!
Last week’s workouts looked different from the past handful of months. They actually looked the same as all of last year, except with maybe 1 less rest day. But, it was full of all CrossFit workouts! I have been trying to balance my workouts with CrossFit, running, and some HIIT training as of lately. I was getting ready to run a marathon and definitely wanted to get in some more running.
Well since our marathon is being pushed back some, it’s time for some more CrossFit! CrossFit is what really made me fall in love with working out and helped me with realizing how important fueling your body is. So it feels good to return back to it. I will probably be doing mostly CrossFit, with a few HIIT classes in there, for the most part for the next month or two.
As much as I love the high intensity workouts, I won’t be killing myself every workout. And you shouldn’t either. Exercise is great and all and obviously I encourage and love it, but if you are over-stressing your body too much, you might be hurting yourself. It could cause adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances, loss of your menstrual cycle (if you are female), stalled progress in the gym, inability to lose body fat, loss of sex drive, loss of appetite, and more.
I’ve been there and sure as hell don’t want to go back. If you feel like your exercise routine might be affecting you in any of those ways, I challenge you to look at your workout routine and see if you can adjust it.
