June 30 - Thoughts on recovery & hydration

With the vacation I took for almost two weeks, I haven't done too many pullups lately. So yesterday doing 100 wrecked my lats and shoulders...I am SO!  Anyone else feeling the effects of Angie today?

Because of the above, recovery is on my mind today. I definitely need to order some Nighttime Recovery, Muscle Strength, and Catalyst!  Sleep has been a bit off and on, 7hrs average. I need to go to bed earlier.

At the CrossFit Movement & Mobility Cert, we went over the importance of being properly hydrated. Did you know that being 2% dehydrated can cause up to 5% reduction in your VO2 capacity? I bet it's a safe bet that being dehydrated will prolong being sore too!
