My surgery took place on 12 January 2010. I was in a sling for about six weeks; however, after about one and a half weeks after my surgery, I was starting to 'move' again. I was devising countless one-armed WODs that would challenge me, while still protecting my right shoulder.
I have been diligently attending my weekly physical therapy sessions; however, I am not challenged . As the weeks have progressed, I have become more confident in my abilities. I understand protocol...I truly do. But, for the past three and a half years, I have conditioned my body to an entirely different level of fitness: it is called CrossFit.
After qualifying, and subsequently competing, in the 2009 CrossFit Games, I discovered where I stood among the world's fittest individuals. I wanted to do better at the Games; however, I am not disappointed in my performance. It just drives me to improve. And that is really the foundation of this blog: The Training Never Stops! No matter what limitation, disability, or roadblock...the training never stops!
I hope that my words will encourage you to endlessly pursue your fitness goals. The CrossFit community is a support system that will always be there - it will inspire you to achieve goals you never dreamed possible. Find a CrossFit affiliate, introduce yourself, participate in your first WOD (workout of the day), and achieve your health and fitness goals!
