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!

Get in a thorough warm-up that must include dynamic warm-up drills as well as stride outs to prepare the muscles for the speed they are going to experience in this workout.
