Alright dad!

Most of you know that I came back from a 5 day break of Reverse Paleo and hanging out in the oxidative state.  For the workout ‘Del’ I did the first 25 burpees and 400 m run with the ball and it Felt.  Like.  Death.  Like I had never done CrossFit before.  Like I didn’t know how to do pull ups.  Burpees?  Forget it.  Today I am sore as f#@*.

But despite this, the break was sorely needed.  5 weeks of competition for the CF Open was physically and emotionally exhilarating, but also draining.  And although I’m fat and disgusting right now, the road back is something I am once again hungry for.  What have you guys done after the Open?
