I have been blogging a lot about my CF adventure and I have more…I love it and plan to continue but do believe there is a way to modify it for endurance athletes. Brian McKenzie started Crossfit Endurance; he wrote a book and has a dedicated website. I have the book and refer to the site where there programming but frankly doing a WOD (workout of the day) alone does not cut it. CF is so awesome because it is coached and there is camaraderie from the other Crossfiters- we encourage, nudge and have fun suffering together. There are a few CF Endurance programs in SD but from what I have seen maybe it is one workout per week or in some cases nothing looks different than standard CF.
I am seriously pondering attending a CF Endurance Seminar. 1- become a certified CF Coach and 2- learn more about the Endurance component and how it can be effectively integrated in to endurance sports. Although I have just learned to be a level 1CF Certified Coach is $1000! Yikes...I may do the CF Endurance Certificate program first..and then go from there.
I still have a lot to learn so I am not sure of the timing…but my vision is creating a CF Endurance program in SD that is 3 days a week and is focused on CF + swim.bike.run. More to come as I figure this out…but I fairly sure there would be big demand.
