I'm almost at the end of my second week of clean Paleo eating and 5x week CrossFit training, and I'm starting to notice my intensity is suffering a bit. Have the workouts gotten harder? Do I need more than 8 hours of sleep a night? Should I eat more carbs? Probably all of the above...at any rate, I'm finding myself tired when I first wake up and at AM workouts, tired again late afternoon, and then sucking wind through my PM workouts. I have been eating fruit with my afternoon snack in the hope that the sugar will help fuel my workouts. I get through the warm up and the first half with no problem, then its like I hit a wall. My muscles just don't want to work and I can't keep up the intensity. I'm going to talk to Crystal to see what I can do to remedy the situation. I'm thinking it might be time to tinker with the diet or add in some supplements (alchemy, bitches!) In general, I am really happy with the Paleo diet. Its not as hard as I thought it would be, I am enjoying the veggies, and I am definitely getting leaner. I think if I add starches or dairy back into my diet, I might stop progressing. Plus, my allergies and stomach problems are better thanks to Paleo! Yay! Speaking of hitting a wall - I see that Kettlebell torture week continues at CrossFit! CrossFit Women's WOD: Sumo Deadlift High Pull with the Kettlebell (16 kgRX) This is a partner workout where we have to complete reps in increments of 2s, per minute until one team remains. Meaning, minute 1, 2 reps. Minute 2, 4 reps, and so on...should be fun! Hopefully my partner and I will kill it. The SDLHP is one of my favorites for the legs. I love to feel that burn! Just two more workouts to get through, then its R&R time! The weekend can't get here soon enough!
