Rocking the Trident shirt and overheads squats.

Most of the time, when I tell people I do CrossFit (that’s kind of a lot with me!), people respond with curiosity, surprise and actually — a level of respect I never expected.

I’m automatically labeled “hardcore” in some way or another. Oh, you’re ...

How to give your injury a swift kick in the pants

Posted by:

This post is from Trident athlete Kristina Thomas. It’s from her personal blog, Dawn Points. Don’t be a tough guy/gal if you’re injured!

**NOTE 1: FOR NON-DEBILITATING INJURIES ONLY**

**NOTE 2: I am not a medical professional**

So, you’ve been injured.

You’ve been sentenced to the dull realm of not-making-progress-toward-your-mission-of-combining-the-strength-of-a-grizzly-and-the-suppleness-of-a-leopard-into-one-super-human-that-happens-to-have-your-face, also known as not-CrossFitting.

To avoid spending listless afternoons in crushing un-productivity and poopy self-pity, read on. Take it from someone with 20/20 hindsight.

Step 0. ADMIT that you have an injury.

From Hating to Loving My Arms

Deadlifts? No problem.

When I was 16, something happened to me that scarred my brain for a long time. I remember it so clearly, sitting at a friends house upstairs listening to music, just hanging out — and one of the guys said to me — “You have big arms for a girl.”

For those who have not heard, a group of 100 rowers in teams of four decided it’d be “fun” to row from Midnight to 8 a.m. for a very good cause this past Friday/Saturday. Together, the rowers hit 2,666,567 meters and as Dave Farag pointed out on Facebook, that’s similar to rowing from Trident to Colorado Spring, Colo.

Workout of the Day at Trident (You can see me, nose to the ground, behind the #30 box)

Been loving my crossfit workouts the past two weeks. Could it be because they have included lots of running? Probably.
