2nd Serving – Need More Work? (-Bias)

If you didn’t do yesterday’s 5k for time, do that instead. Our every-other-day-Endurance-bias-work will train specifically to improve your 5k time. You can adapt this into rowing and skiing as well.

  • Walk two to three minutes to pre-warm your body.
  • Run 10 minutes at an easy effort to warm up.
  • Run 8 x 1 minute at a hard but controlled effort in the red zone (see chart below).
  • Follow every minute of hard running with one minute walking to catch your breath and recover.
  • Cool down by running five minutes at an easy effort and walking three minutes.

WATCH:

Since we had so much fun (and were inspired so much) watching FITTEST ON EARTH: A DECADE OF FITNESS a couple of weeks back we decided to do it again!

Friday night we’ll watch “Golden Girl : Mattie Rogers”, a film based on one of USA’s top Olympic Weightlifters (who started as a teen CrossFit Games champion) talks about her sports background including competitive Cheerleading, her introduction to CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting, and how she decided to pursue weightlifting full time. The movie shows her preparing for and competing at Jr. Pan Ams in Colombia.

Spoilers:

You can also catch Mattie this weekend at the 2017 Nike National University & Under 25 Championships powered by Rogue Fitness.
