Ever had a hard time trying to figure out how to describe CrossFit to a friend or your family? Try telling a story, like this one that I tell all the time… When I first started CrossFit, I gave it a 2 month trial… I decided to use my 5k time as a litmus test. I ran a 5k, then did CrossFit 3 days on and 1 day off, exactly as prescribed on CrossFit.com (except for loads that were frequently too heavy for me to manage with good form). At the end of the 2 months, I re-ran my 5k… and to my surprise, my time had dropped by 2:30 – I was FASTER than when I had started! Shocking? Absolutely! Especially when my running mileage had dropped from an average of 25 miles per week, to well under 5 miles per week and I was spending less than 20 minutes each day on in the gym!
