The last time I did a Snatch Balance was just after I started Crossfit. Fast forward a couple of months and I've injured my back pretty severely and am not sure if I'll be able to do Crossfit anymore. I missed the Open, but I still went to the classes, watched, stayed part of the community as best I could, and did my rehab. Last night, I managed my first (scary as hell) overhead squat movement (snatch balance) since January...and I managed a set that was heavier than before the injury. 22kg didn't feel like much of an achievement to me, until I put it into my app. Not feeling fit enough or strong enough is NOT a reason to not do Crossfit. I managed this because even when I couldn't do the same WODs as everyone else, there was always something, no matter how small, that I COULD do. Yes it was horrifically frustrating, it still is, but you are still part of the amazing @tandemcrossfit crew, sweating it out, and that's what matters. Counting down the days until I can do a deadlift again, but in the meantime, I'm happy with getting my squat on! Shout out to the team at Tandem for helping me scale everything to within an inch of its life for every WOD!
