Ralston Creek CrossFit – CrossFit

Guess what metric is just as important as your back squat? Yep. Running a 5k. We did short intervals last week, and now its time for the longer aerobic test. Don’t cherry pick today. I know we can all use the work here. Bring a stopwatch and try to perform negative splits on each 800m. If you finish this and aren’t out of breath, you didn’t push hard enough. Scaling this to 1.5 or 1-mile is perfectly fine for athletes that are challenged by running. Athletes who can’t run can perform a 5k on the rower, or 20k on the Bike.
