Running Workouts

If your goal is to improve in CrossFit or your overall fitness do these two running workouts we post each week in addition to your CrossFit Workouts. You will notice a huge difference in your workouts in class and overall fitness.

For the workouts we do each week you need to know you 1 Mile PR time and 400 Meter PR time.

We adapt workouts from Chris Hinshaw’s Aerobic Capacity program. The athletes that are completing these workouts are seeing huge improvements!

These workouts can be completed on the same day you do a CrossFit class or in place of the metcon. If you do both in the same day it is best if you have at least 4 hours of rest between workouts. For those that are super busy with life like most of us do your best!

Join us for a trail run each Saturday. We have the Spartan SGX group running together. We have running options from 3 miles on up to  8+ miles this week.

If your goal is to improve your running/Spartan Races and run some races you need to throw in a long run each week. It is very important that you get this time on your feet no matter what your pace is. This run is something you will do in place of a CrossFit Workout.

Discuss your goal with Andrew or myself and I will help you come up with a plan. You can text or call me (Kris LeSueur) at (602) 430-9060

For those that are feeling ready to run a long run start with 30 to 45 Minutes.
