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?
