Holy Sh*t! Peter and I just went to our first crossfit session and got worked. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for. It's one of those workouts where you just want to get it over with as fast as possible because your lungs burn! My heart rate was sky high, it was awesome.
The major benefit I think I'll get from it, besides the obvious gains in strength, is the mental toughness aspect. Once you have been there and by 'there' I mean, wanting to puke/be curled up in fetal position, it will be that much easier to overcome being in that place during a tough race. I've heard it many times, ultra running is a game of attrition. Can you outlast your competitors?
Here is the link to a video if you wanted to check out what crossfit is all about. It's only a sample of one workout, there are many variations.
We're back in on thursday with Chris, the owner, for our second round of pain! I would suggest it to anyone! It's the good pain :)
