I went back to my old gym today! Actually, I started out at the dentist, with some good news that my crown doesn’t need to be replaced (I’ve had it done twice in two years) and that my bite was just off! I’ve been having pretty severe temperature sensitivity and pain with pressure lately. So my bite was adjusted and he said within 6 weeks, everything should heal up and maybe I’ll be able to eat on that side of my mouth again!
Then I went back to my old gym (my third CrossFit gym that I was a regular at)! I had plans of becoming a CrossFit trainer there but then changed my mind because of my busy schedule, but went there for about 7-8 months before I moved. Despite the fact that there was a lot of drama between that gym and the previous gym I went to (among other things), it felt so good to be back there. I saw familiar faces and the ones that weren’t familiar were all so friendly. I had a good workout and at the end, one girl was still going for a long time, and it was so nice that every single person cheered her along! That is standard to do in CrossFit, but my gym now doesn’t foster quite the same environment. They’re a bit of elitists where I go now, so it’s a totally different feel. They produce a lot of Games competitors but I don’t care about all that mess anymore. I just don’t think that the gym I’m at now is the best fit for where I’m at with CrossFit anymore, but it’s super close and I’m leaving for travel nursing soon anyway, so I might as well just stay there for now. Anyway, I left feeling super happy about being back there and feeling “right” about the gym that I was at. I miss all three of my old gyms a ton. I’m hoping that when I travel, I can find a good CrossFit gym in each city to be a part of for my 13 weeks in each place. I’ll be celebrating my 5 year CrossFit-iversary in June. Maybe I’ll eat a cake for it. Kidding. I probably won’t even go to the gym for it.
Anyway, we did Nasty Girls today, which is 3 rounds of 50 air squats, 7 muscle ups, and 10 hang cleans. Instead of muscle ups, I did 14 pull ups and 14 ring dips for each set, which was nice of the owner since it’s normally 3x the amount of muscle ups (or whatever move you’re subbing for), but apparently they just did something similar so he didn’t want everybody to have to do so many pull ups and ring dips. I used 65# for my cleans and finished in 12:57.
I need to start studying again for my test tonight. Last night I just read blogs and then watched Real Housewives, so I never ended up getting much done. It’s dreary and drizzly out though so a nap with the Fluff is just calling my name. Considering I’m not being very productive though, I doubt I’ll have time for that. Boo.
