I've been doing some soul searching lately - I've had a lot on my mind and high up on my list of concerns is where I'm at with working out on a regular basis. Earlier this evening I was driving home from yet another 12-hour work day rife with difficult phone calls, meetings that didn't stay on agenda and assorted other unpleasantness while wondering what to blog about tonight. At some point on the freeway I connected the dots between tonight's topic and a discussion I had with Armen a few days ago. Taking CrossFit class used to be a (very important) form of stress relief. I haven't been working out as much due, in large part, to work obligations at the office. Armen reminded me why setting a schedule of workouts every week is necessary - for 60 minutes we have the opportunity to disconnect from everything that plagues us and get rid of the negative energy we collect during the day. For those of you who work in high stress environments you know how true this is. Also, working out is a much better vice to have when compared to other options... How has doing CrossFit helped you disconnect from reality after a tough day? Sound off with your stories in the comments!
