So it goes like this….
I’ve always had a bad knee due to genetics but I’ve had 2 scopes and 1 tornÂ ACL. Â Then some screws came loose from my knee so had to had new ACL/screws again. Â The last kneeÂ surgery was microfracture. Â The doctor told me not to run anymore and I’m outÂ toÂ prove him wrong.
I loved Crossfit the first time I tried it but I was unsure (or perhapsÂ uneducated) how it would improve other things I like to do like races. SoÂ when IÂ saw some WOD improvements then started seeing race improvements, I wasÂ hooked. Â IÂ can’t imagine training any other way. It’s helped my endurance duringÂ races butÂ also strength (dawn and todd’s comments on hills being easier) as well asÂ myÂ mental strength to push through.
My friends think I’m nuts for some if the stuff we do in CF but I’mÂ beating themÂ in races. I used to hope to pace off them a few years ago but now I’mÂ leavingÂ them during the race. Â I dont always beat them but in the last 6 months,Â I’veÂ been winning pretty regularly.
Crossfit is my sole training method, and it works even on endurance.
