Don’t take me wrong there are some days that I say heck no and stay in bed. But, those are also the days I make it a point to do some sort of other workout, whether it be spinning, walking, or going for a swim. Each day I find I have to do something in order to feel good-those endorphins are addicting.

Two weeks ago my shoulder really hurt after I did a 1 rep max push press of 100 pounds. While vacationing up north at home, I found out after visiting a chiropractor friend that my shoulder had been partially dislocated for the last week. So, today’s WOD I knew I had a baby my shoulder a little bit to protect it.
