Crossfitter's nightmare (Literally)

Last night, while asleep, I had dreamt that I was in a globo and doing side lateral raises with 10 pound dumbbells. Everyone else was doing crossfit and was laughing at me. I was embarrassed but couldn't stop doing the globo lifts.

It was terrible!!!!!

Anyone else have any dreams/nightmares relating to globo-ness/crossfit "themes"?

Re: Crossfitter's nightmare (Literally)

Well mine wasn't really CF related but was fitness related. I had a dream that I couldn't make it to the ruck in my rugby games. I'd be racing for it about to hit it then suddenly the ball would be out and it would be in the back line. Everytime there was a ruck I was just a step behind it. It was weird because I usually hit every ruck.
Maybe it was me subconciously doubting my speed and conditioning. Whatever it was I busted my *** at the next practice as a result.

Re: Crossfitter's nightmare (Literally)

Every now and then I get a dream where I have to run for my life but it seems like there is no gravity...

It feels like I am trying my very best but moving very slowly, every time I touch the ground I go high in the air and have to wait to get back down to take the 2nd step, so on.

sprinting is my weakest movement in Track and during my high school track career I could have used some sprinting speed, some of my "team mates" took cheap shots and my coaches were always complaining about my 100m not improving ever, it daunted me then, and it's doing the same thing now...

No rugby player hits every ruck. Or should. Don't be so hard on yourself.

I find myself in position to hit a good number of them most of the time. In the dream I didn't hit ANY though.

Re: Crossfitter's nightmare (Literally)

Though I am no psychologist, my assumption is that all of these failures in our dream of not being fast or strong enough is our subconscious expressing our innate fears of not being good enough, or the innate fear of failure. Whenever I have those dreams, I usually think about it for a day or two and try to figure out ways to push past my fears (easier said then done of course).

I also have lots of dreams where I am running or chasing someone but can never catch up to them or win. I have a feeling that will be a common dream among people who exercise consistently.

I have this same one. It's like when I'm punching I'm very slow like a punch in water or goo.

Last night I was doing hella 3x5 Back Squats in my dreams and was seemingly always half awake and half asleep. I was also sweating a ton. I attribute this to a combination of the Starting Strength 3x5 back squats I did last night plus a fever from a cold I think I'm getting from my 3 year old.
