CrossFit Helps with……… and "Dirty Thirty" WOD

By: 0

CrossFit helps you run faster, swim stronger, cycle longer and jump higher!

There are quite a few of you who are in the process of training for different events – whether they be mud runs, 5ks, triathlons or much longer runs. And I know a lot of you are training for these events outside of your “regularly scheduled program” here at WCCF. And that’s great! If you enjoy it, go for it!

However, bear in mind that the WODs you’re doing in CrossFit aren’t just making you better at CrossFit – they’re making you better at ANYTHING!!! I’ve competed in quite a few races since I started CrossFitting, and for the most part, my training regime did not include much beyond what I did at the box. And, when it all came down to it – that’s really all I needed!

Now again, that’s not to say that if you have never run a step in your life that you shouldn’t practice running. By all means, get out there! But from what I’ve seen of our members’ performance and my own, I’m convinced! CrossFit helps you run better!
