11.12.12 "Randy"

November 11, 2012

Hey There CFB gladiators,
I just got back from the CrossFit Endurance Seminar and learned a lot. You will be seeing lots of POSE running drills in our warm ups the next few weeks. Great stuff to make running easy and efficient. You will also start to see Endurance WODs of the week. These are for our Endurance Sport Athletes, the triathletes and the runners. These Extra WODs can also be used if endurance is your weakness. There will be more information about how and when to use these WODs. In the next few weeks I will also be putting together an Endurance Team or class. Where we can meet at least once a week and train together. If you have more interest in Endurance training, triathlon training or marathon training post it.

Veterans Day!!!
Today we honor our Veterans! Without them we would not be FREE to WOD!!! Thank you to all our Veterans and active military!!!

Randy Simmons, 51, a 27 year LAPD veteran and SWAT team member was killed February 6 in the line of duty.

      Hal, I think you are supposed to try to keep each running interval within 2-3 seconds of the rest. So if the first 300 takes you 1:15 you need to try to stay between 1:15 and 1:18 for the remaining 7.

    I’d like to be able to run a half in 2013 at some point so Endurance WODs would be great.

    Anxious to hear how the others did ..!
    Go Elaine, Jenn, Ryan, and JC…
    Still at it when I left. .!

    Hal: Hold between 2-3 secs means that you have to pace each run so that your times for each round are within 2-3 sec. That means do not go balls out and run :30sec 300 then :40sec 300 and down from there. That being said it still should be High Intensity but maybe 90-95%.

    Thanks Elaine an Jen and Ryan for sucking me in for the Hero WOD.
    I’m glad I had to teach at 10am!

    I finished 7miles and 105 Burpee pull-ups in 1HR :27sec.
    I have never run more than 4miles in my life so this was very rewarding knowing that I can do 7 and even more.

    Just Lean, Fall forward and Pull up those feet.

    Congrats to you guys for finishing the whole WOD!!!
