I read a lot of posts, but never feel like I have anything worthy of posting.
But today I have a problem, a good problem, but it’s messing with my head. So here it goes:
About a month ago my massage therapist encouraged me to try crossfit, something I have always viewed as too expensive and a little scary. That day I did a search and low and behold one of the local crossfit gyms had a groupon. Which I promptly purchased and redeemed 4 days later. I did 4 of the 6 foundations classes, they condensed them a bit for me because of my background in olympic lifting and then joined the classes. After less than 3 weeks I’m hooked.
The problem is though that I don’t just want to crossfit, I want to compete again in olympic lifting. Today I looked up the qualifying total I would need for provincials and it’s pretty reasonable. I got in touch with an old friend to find a competition to qualify and I may have thrown my hat back into the ring before I’ve even strung together heavy clean and jerks. I’m not sure what I have to gain from competing again, other than having fun I suppose. It seems a bit nutty in fact.
Tonight at the gym it was a strength day. I managed to back squat 210x3 for fairly easy reps. And then power snatched from the hang 45kg.
So my problem is good, I want to get back into competition and I guess the only problem is the fact that I think I’m a nutter for wanting back into that life.
