I was a marathon runner, remember? I used to spend upwards of 10 hours a week training for a marathon that included a 2+ hour run each weekend. That got old quick and I got injured, if you have followed this blog long enough. Tendinitis in my right knee stopped me cold for months- even though I finished the marathon, I wasn’t better for a long time after that race. Now, I do Cross Fit five days a week and I love it! I was even lucky enough to do Cross Fit on the beach yesterday with a bunch of other like minded soles…nothing like a 300 jumping squats, 150 Sumo-Dead lift High Pulls, Thrusters and sandy burpees with hundreds of beer drinking beach goers watching you!
So, in conjunction with CrossFit.com there is CrossFitEndurance . No more long runs EVAHHHHHHHH! Total work time involved is less than 10 hours a week for both workouts! How does it work? You start with the WOD on CrossFit’s main site. Do that for one month. Then, add in 1 CrossFit Endurance WOD on the same days as the Cross Fit main site WOD, then take a rest day the next.
