    Glad we’ve got a few runners! You all keep doing what you are doing in CrossFit, maybe add a running day or two and you’ve got it. AVOID the looooong, slow cardio.

    I’ve run a couple half marathons in past years and followed traditional training programs logging high weekly mileage and “long runs” up to 12 miles. Wendy’s comment made it sound like maybe lots of miles aren’t necessary for a long race. CrossFit runners, any thoughts? Would love to do beachside half but haven’t put in longer than 6 miles in months.

    @ Joanne and John…that is correct. It’t not difficult to get into an onxidative state and “coast” through a long race. So, you want to prep your muscles for all the work be lifting weights, getting uncomfortable in CrossFit WODs and going running intervals, short and intense.

    There have been lots of CrossFit athletes that have proven this approach. Check out http://www.crossfitendurance.com for examples of the type of running workouts you would do in conjunction with CrossFit.

    I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions.
