I mentioned CrossFit in yesterday’s post and it stirred up some conversation in the comments (which I love!). It seems there is a bit of a controversy between CrossFit and endurance running.
For those interested, Jill shared this article. It addresses “CrossFit Endurance” which I believe is separate from “regular” CrossFit and geared more towards endurance training rather than “just” overall body strength and conditioning. Correct me if I am wrong. Rob?
I won’t comment on the points argued in the article because I don’t have any experience or enough information to form an opinion. I will simply say that our guest speaker introduced us to the option of incorporating CrossFit as a supplement to endurance (run) training for improved overall body strength and fitness. As far as I can tell, there is no harm in that.
That being said, it’s not something I intend to pursue (at least not now). I’m sure I could benefit from some kind of strength training regimen, but I
can’t am not willing to fit it into my packed schedule of running, cycling and swimming. That might change down the road – like when I eventually hire a coach and he or she tells me that I have to. 🙂
Happy Friday! Catch you on the other side…..
