Cross fit or the cross road of insanity?!?

On Sunday i was approached by a friend who told me about crossfit endurance for marathon runners. My eyes perked up and I instantly listened to every word she had to say. I am familiar with Crossfit but i never knew it could help you get across the finish line faster.

After i spoke to her, i checked out her gym online and read a little bit more about it. Are you serious? The police acaedemy and marines use Crossfit training to get their own in shape. Then i dig deeper... they life heavy things, they kettleball, they climb ropes, and they do handstand pushups. Really?

So, as wierd as i am, I'm going to check it out on Wed. and see if it's for me. I had some goals set for 2011 and one was to get out of my comfort zone. Running a marathon is not comfortable. Getting up at 7am on Saturdays to run with my club is not comfortable. Juggling home, work, husband, running and children is not comfortable.

I just didn't know i would be blasting past my comfort zone and heading straight into insanity.

Do you know anything about Crossfit? Can it really help you reach your running goals?


  1. I've done CrossFit and it's haaaaard. I've looked at CrossFit Endurance and it's even harder...like ridiculous....so I haven't tried it. I inately know it would be too much for me.
    Definitely let us know what you think of it!

  2. My brother-in-law does Crossfit and seems to like it. It scares me a little. You are my hero for going so far out of your comfort zone! I can't wait to hear how you liked it.

  3. You guys are scaring me...Yikes! What have i gotten myself into??
