In the interests of full disclosure, I must admit the following, which makes me seem not-so nice:
There have been times when, after big competitive workout events like Fight Gone Bad or the Spartan 300, I’ve seen various CrossFitters dramatically collapse to the floor, perhaps accommodated by a significant groan or – worse – a loud, look-at-me, triumphant growl.
This makes me roll my eyes. And, maybe say something like, “Jeez! Really?! They have to throw themselves on the floor like that?! Divas!” And that’s just the guys. (Ba-dum dum!)
I know! I’m being judgy.
But sometimes it’s SO over-the-top.
Then today, I kinda got it.
Our workout kicked my ass so hard that when I was finished, I had to lie down on the floor. The need to be prone was overwhelming. I didn’t growl or groan or flounce as I did it. I just kinda crumpled to the floor after I yelled ‘time.’ And then I was just lying there, breathing.
Has there ever been a feeling as sweet as lying on the CrossFit Austin floor?
No, there has not.
