Its been over 7 days since I have trained and Im usually itching to get back in the gym after a few days off. This time was different, I clearly lacked energy and wasnt myself so decided that rest is what I really needed. I had given myself until today to recovery from the QL strain and deal with this nasty sore throat /head cold. I figured anymore and I was babying myself.
Im in Palm Springs for a company executive meeting and would be visiting a new box. This should make it much easier to scale and take it easy since no one knows who I am. We had a good crew from work cued up to train - Dennis, Chris King, and Tony Beller. Its always easier when someone else has checked the class times and even rented a car to make the commute easier.
Crossfit Shifted was a traditional big box. Massive space with ultra high ceilings. Huge group for a 5am class with at least 20 people. All the other athletes were extremely friendly and a few were even committed to learning our names. We did a 3x100m row warm up and then did mobility work before we went to the whiteboard to discuss the WOD.
Finished in 29:20.
