Re: donating blood: how long until back to normal?

I did a double unit and had no problems with wods for the next few days. They were short of spectacular, but I didn't mind too much. I've only done doubles once, when I had time at the end of the day. I can only do singles now because I only have 10 minutes, between classes.

Re: donating blood: how long until back to normal?

I give blood pretty much every 8 weeks.
I never noticed much of a difference before crossfit. But now I do.
I give on Tuesday evenings and rest that night. Have a WOD on Wednesdays and it is always harder than normal, I get winded and just fatigued.

I will still keep doing it, it is more of an annoyance than anything. I just know the day after, I am going to have crappy performance.

I had to have blood drawn for a lipid profile (fasted at 8am). I usually work out at 6am but thought I would feel totally crappy if I deadlifted, didn't eat, AND got blood drawn. I fainted dead away and that was without a workout. I think it really does make a difference. I don't know. When you get blood removed that's a good excuse to take a rest day in my honest opinion
