You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

you know you crossfit too much when...

you wake up in a panic from a dream where you did a full murph, survived, and after clearing your timer get distracted by something and COMPLETELY blank on what your time was.

(this happened to me on the eve of my first murph...i was so relieved that it was only a dream)

add your own!

Re: You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

You back up your decision to run the first mile of a 5k flatout after not running "distance" in 6 years and taking 2 months off with "I'm an f'ing CrossFitter".

Seemed like a good idea at the time.

6:59 BTW...God I'm slow now...

Re: You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

When you notice a poster for children's day care with a kid picking up a ball, and the first thing you think of is, "if only if the kid was lower he would have a pretty good squat".

I couldn't stop laughing about it for a good ten minutes. Then I reviewed with my girlfriend the details about a good squat using the poster as a diagram.

Your wife isn't offended when you brag about doing Jackie, Nicole or Fran.

Your non-CrossFitting friends get confused when your wife is jealous about not being able to do Jackie, Nicole or Fran with you!

True story: we're standing in line at Home Depot waiting to buy another length of PVC tubing, openly discussing which girl we felt like doing together that evening after we chop the tube into lengths to practice a few moves first. We both have an "oh sh*t" moment at the same time, when we realize people in line are listening in and completely misunderstanding.


You know you CrossFit too much when your first words to your significant other involves a question about what's sore today...

Re: You Know You CrossFit Too Much When...

You know what the parameters of Angie, Fran, Linda, Murphy, Cindy, Grace etc. off by heart, and people just go and ask you rather than look at the WOD sheets (we do group PT at work and have several sheet of paper with various WODs printed on them, although they don't get used that often, as people will say "Hey Buz, whats X workout called with those thrusters and pull ups?").

i'm entertained by the home depot story.

my facebook statuses get a little awkward at times. i'm pretty sure some extended family members are often confused
