I straight up sucked at the WOD today. During the first round, I felt a tinge of pain in my groin. Then it became a sharp pain and I could feel some tightness. So I tried stretching it out and it continued to hurt, but I told myself I would never quit a WOD so I tried to continue. I made adjustments of course and didn't give 100% but I did finish the workout. To say I was disappointed in myself is an understatement, I was pissed.
|From Monday's WOD|
As I drove home I started to rationalize with myself. Had I continued to go 100% I could have pulled my groin which would sideline me for a few weeks, meaning no patriots triathlon, little CrossFit, and prolly some weight gain. So, I prolly did the right thing and as I write this I can feel some soreness in the groin. I'll try to stretch it out tomorrow and make sure I can go strong.
So I guess the quote I should have written is "Better a bad excuse, than none at all. "
