After three long months of programming, yesterday was the day I was due to test my new maxes on both squat and bench press. I’m pretty diligent when it comes to homework, so I followed my programming religiously, despite wanting to test myself or push myself harder on those rest weeks or when a fun crossfit workout came along.
On my last trip in November, it felt like my body broke. I was coughing, stuffy, couldn’t sleep, but always tired, and, strangest of all, my gums were bleeding, like non-stop. It was creepy and worrisome to say the least. Travel puts a toll on our bodies, but usually I handle things much better.
