  1. RUN
    good Hittin' It 4 mi 00:31 07:52 pace

    I second faster than Monday total. I am enjoying this type of run. Makes me happy. 7:30, 8:30, 7:18, 8:14. Next week I start back up with a 5x5 strength program too.

  2. RUN
    good Grudge Match 4 mi 00:32 07:52 pace

    I felt pretty good about this. 7:30, 8:30, 7:11, 8:19. Idea was to go hard/moderate/hard/moderate. It felt a lot like I used to feel when I first started getting into running 8 or so years ago. It ... read more

  3. RUN
    good Long Post Incoming... 4.01 mi 00:33 08:16 pace

    The short part: the run went fine for being back out of running form. Xfit has definitely improved my short burst cardio though. Splits were 8:20, 8:57, 7:14, 8:30. I was surprised at the 7:14. I w... read more

    Today's Xfit was a running workout. Very short. Very depressing. 5 years ago I would have crushed this in under 13 minutes. Hell a few months back I probably would have done it in under 16. Th... read more

      How often do you run this workout in XFit? Do you think it really reflects your overall fitness, or just the variability of the workouts? I would bet you have gained fitness in other areas.

      Yeah I have gained a bit in other areas. It's a matter of specializing vs generalizing for sure. Of course now I'm ditching the xfit because of the tendinitis in my elbow. No idea when that will heal. I'm going back to shorter distance running and basic barbell weight training a few times/week.

    good This Week so far

    Still doing the Crossfit, and occasionally running. Some of the Xfit workouts are very cardio intensive, as in high intensity intervals. They're about as hard as my hardest track workouts, but... read more

  6. RUN
    good Round Lake 00:45

    No way to use GPS, too much forest. So I set it on timer and just ran a rough trail, hilly 45 mins. That was nice.

  8. RUN
    alright Salmon Creek Trail 4 mi 00:36 08:54 pace

    So my running is going to suffer a lot doing Crossfit. First, because the intensity makes cardio work very hard even on days off, and second because I'm just not running as much. But over all ... read more

      Seems as if the goal is to be fit and healthy, you are succeeding. Hope that you are enjoying the crossfit torture, as well as the running... even if it does occasionally suck!

    good Might be a Mistake... 4.01 mi 00:37 09:07 pace

    90 degrees and it felt like it. I looked at tonight's workout and I saw that it will be heavy squats followed by running intervals (10 x 300m with 100m jog). I kinda figured I'd just run ... read more

      I got to the gym and learned that Friday's class is 5:30 not 5PM like the rest of the week. That was not going to work with my schedule so I ended up ditching.

      And of course I didn't check the Crossfit workout this morning. I'm very new to CF. Turns out part of the workout was 1 mile run for time followed by several other exercises. Of all the days to have a 1 mile timed run!

      Sounds promising in regarding to lack of pain except for blister! Hopefully whatever issue side railed you is long gone.

      Sorry to hear about the signs of injury. This sounds like a great plan to stay fit and work on running more down the line. I have been sidelined too. Trying some different shoes and cut back my "mileage" (which was minimal to begin with!). Good luck with the new training!

      Ah man, I was hoping you'd still be at it currently. Anyway I did workout with the Crossfit group yesterday. I've still got a bit of back strain from some bad lifting I did a couple months ago so that's going to slow me down. But overall this should be a good move for me.

      Temporary set back. I'm stubborn, or stupid, or both, but I am going to run. Keep getting stronger and keep at it Aric!

      You definitely have more determination than I do! I think I will still put in 18-24 miles per week even with the Crossfit. The Xfit is very intense but I think it'll peak out rather quickly because they don't do any kind of real organized training with specificity. Just lots of action and intensity.
