Body Memories March 20 2016
I have returned to my crossfit tribe! YAY! Due to an added layer of counseling, I've been better able to understand the debilitating physical pain I experience. On a trauma scale of 0-10, my baseline is a 3. Physical exertion and stress triggers my body into thinking it is in danger and will begin to shut down if I don't short circuit the response. The body prepares to die (which is exactly what it can feel like). I am able to workout the first 15 minutes and cannot go higher than a 4 on the scale. If I hit 4, then I take a moment to calm my heart rate. In the latest "workout", I actually felt like a 2 for a moment. I'm back, baby!
