Thanks for the great advice guys/gals. I am feeling really sore today from yesterday's deadlifts and wall balls. Again, I can see that my "core" is a weakness for me. Lower back is crazy sore while my legs and upper body are good sore. I took off today, but may have to take off tomorrow as I don't want to push it now. Not sure I could do a WOD in this condition.
I think at first I was looking to go balls to the wall and push myself. One month in and after reading these responses, I realize that I need to control myself. In time, with the proper work load, I will be able to go all out and push my limits higher.
I think for the first three months (2 more) I will reign myself in and not give a
what anyone thinks or says, including myself.
