FRIDAY – Running Day 

9 Mile Run at an aerobic/conversation pace.

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 the distance with Andrew or Kris to come up with a plan!
