NorCal CrossFit Mar. 18th 2014

While today’s focus at the gym will be those heavy jerks, it is also important that we don’t forget about the skills that go into running. Today you’ll finish with 3 x 400-meter runs.

It is important not to just think of this as a “rest” period between the shoulder to overhead reps. Running is a skill just like any Olympic lifting is a skill. We need to continue to develop this skill, work on drills, practice, and push ourselves.

Two weekends ago, all of your coaches got together to learn some new drills and teaching techniques to help you guys become better in your running. We are so fortunate to be able to learn from Chris Hinshaw. He has so much experience in running, and he is a really amazing coach. If you haven’t already, check out the endurance club by clicking here!

We are always looking to improve as coaches and to become proficient in helping you guys improve in every skill that might come up in CrossFit, and that includes RUNNING!

So take those 400-meter runs seriously today, guys. Listen to your coach when he or she goes over some drills for the run, and push yourselves to get better, even if running might not be your favorite skill we do in CrossFit.

We posted this a while back, but check out this awesome video of Chris working with our very own Jason Khalipa to improve his running.
