Hey you guys!
It’s me…your CrossFit Endurance Coach…Heidi.
So, running WODs aren’t so bad after all, are they?
We know this because my classes keep growing each week. They are growing so much that we have given you two more days of options to join me and my awesome crew of hard-bodied CrossFitters who are stretching the limits of what’s possible through sprints!
There is no denying running anymore in CrossFit. Just look at the WODs in this year’s CrossFit Games. Running was immersed in nearly each day of competition. In fact, the first WOD was a triathlon with an 11K run at the end (that’s more than 6miles).
Not only will you see running in our WODs and on the main site, but running will build your endurance for the long MetCons. As I tell my athletes, running most definitely prepares you for long WODs, but beyond the physical benefits, it’s the mental prowess you GAIN by running that is the game-changer.
Running is hard. End of story. That’s why most don’t do it. However, don’t we live in the ‘hard’ zone of life with CrossFit? So, let’s conquer what is most CrossFitters weakness…running.
Trust me on this, the benefits of running go well beyond the physical leaning out of your body. Running most definitely SHATTERS a person’s self-imposed limitations. I am talking about those barriers that we set for ourselves without really putting them to the test. Think about it, if you can shatter your self-imposed limitations, the possibilities are ENDLESS.
My favorite quote is, ‘if you knew you wouldn’t fail, what would you try?’ Simple, yet profound, yes? Yes!
So, let’s do this! Give CrossFit Endurance a try. You now have two more days in the week to fit me in!
I promise, you will come back hungry for more; hungry for the physical benefits, and starving for the mental benefits. What is the mental benefit? Oh just a little thing called ‘redefining the possible.’
Ok…I have made my play, now it’s up to you.
As of Monday, August 27th, the CFE Running WODs are Monday through Friday at 6am, 7am, and 8am and all meet at the 28th Street box.
