Bit the bullet
For the last couple of weeks I've been rolling around the idea of taking a break from Crossfit. There are a lot of reasons for this, a lot. First and foremost is my knee. I make progress and then it acts up. It seems to be getting progressively worse and I really need to get it better or just fix it. I was talking to one of the girls at Crossfit who had to take 6 weeks off for something else. Her knee got so much better in that time that it hardly bothers her now. That made me stop and think. Second is the money. It would be nice to have a break from paying out $200 a month for a little bit. Finally, it's just time for a break. I've been doing Crossfit almost 2 years and while I really do love it, it is becoming a bit of drudge. Some time off might just rekindle the love affair again.
So, with all these thoughts rolling around my head for the past couple of weeks, and the conversation with the girl this morning, I have decided to take the month of May off from Crossfit. May is going to be a busy month anyway with school ending, graduation, me leaving there, etc. I will have lots to do and not having the pressure of getting to Crossfit will just make life that much easier. Also, I want to start walking the dogs again. I know a lot of Axl's behavior issues are the lack of exercise. So for the month of May I will not do Crossfit, I will focus on ending school, I will walk the dogs, and I will do my PT exercises. This will relieve a lot of pressure from myself and allow me time to get the things done that I want to get done. If I enjoy the month of May, I may extend my hiatus even longer - but I doubt it. I will probably do WODs at home while I do my PT.
So I bit the bullet and I feel a huge sense of relief. One less thing I have to worry about next month.
