Bar Bite Anyone?

January 18, 2013

I cant help but laugh at myself these days when I arrive at CFW. I get out of my car and head into the gym with my duffle filled with clothes and toiletries for my shower and work day, armed with my notebook, protein shaker and water bottle… I drop my bag in the locker room and head to the workout area. This is where it gets funny. I grab my notebook, protein shaker and water bottle… than fumble around with my wrist wraps, lifting shoes, jump rope and belt. Its almost as if I need a second bag to get myself from the locker room to the gym!

One of the things I cant seem to wrap my head around are the knee high socks that a lot of CrossFitters like to wear. I do have a pair… I bought back in October at the Beast of the East. They sat in my drawer for a while when one day JM was at the gym wearing hers… she loves them. I happen to have the same pair as one of the pairs she has. They have been hanging out just waiting for the day that I decided to wear them. So, I did. I was so uncomfortable in them through the whole WOD, but I can see their appeal. They protect your shins from bar bites… ahhh haaaa, I get it now!

I have not warn them since that day, took them home, washed them and they are back on the “maybe I will wear them again someday” waiting area! Today would have been a good day, as I took a nice big chunk out of my chin on the SDHPs… I guess those “Knee-High-Sock-Wearing-CrossFit-Women” know what they are doing! However, I think I will take my chances!!
