You would think by I’d be used to being on my feet all day long. There are days I don’t sit down, and there are days that I don’t remember standing still. What doesn’t make complete sense to me is how I feel after my shift.
My lower back is stiff. I have to work the kinks out of my knees and my hips. My whole body just feels beat up.
Here’s the irony. I am also a CrossFitter. We tend to self-mutilate ourselves every time we do a workout (sort of humorous, but slightly true). If it isn’t the sore muscles, aching joints or tender to touch body parts, it’s the “I got hit by a truck” feeling after a workout. Or better yet I come home having hands like this:
What I can’t completely wrap my head around is that fact that there are days when recovering from a long shift at work is tougher than recovering from a grueling CrossFit workout?
Maybe I AM getting old?
