Before I started at CrossFit LA I ran at most for 22 mins – 10 mins run, 2 min rest, 10 mins run. About 2.4 miles.

Since I started Crossfit I completely stopped running outside the laps we do at the gym.

Last week I tried my old 2.4 mile route and did it easily without stopping. So the next day I tried more. Ran 4 miles with one rest due to shin splints (stopped half way through to rest my shins). The major difference was that my thighs and heart didn’t give out – in the past, they did. I could have run longer if it wasn’t for the shin splints.

In total I ran for about 36 mins plus a minute and a half rest, basically a 9 min mile which I know is slow but the last time I ran 4 miles was about 7 years ago. And I have done zero running since Crossfit. And if not for the shin splints I would have run uninterrupted.

So now I love running and am aiming for the 10k and a faster per mile rate. 100 % confident I can do it and mostly because of the torture at CrossFit LA!Before I started at CrossFit LA I ran at most for 22 mins – 10 mins run, 2 min rest, 10 mins run.
