Did SS for a year so that I would be strong enough to do Crossfit. When I did the CFT, I got 825, not bad considering. Xfit has been amazing so far, I love it and cant wait until the next workout comes out daily.

My question to the experts- I am super weak in my running. Shins hurt, I have no endurance, etc. It bums me out. Does anyone have any tips for someone that hasnt ran since highschool (20 years)??? . Is biking a good substitute until I build my endurance levels up? Thanks all

Alas, the only way to get better at running is to run. If your shins are hurting then it sounds like you're not running properly.

Search the forums (and google) for POSE running, that saved my running life and I've been pain free through a marathon and a 24hr relay at 6'1" & 240lbs.

Start easy and work your way up to more mileage - focus on 1-2 mile runs to work on your technique, but there's no need to run farther and it'll hurt if you increase mileage too fast. Otherwise crossfit normally has enough running to improve your endurance/speed without extra work

Be careful with your shin splints. I would recommend rowing as a running sub until your shins feel okay. Shin splints are more than likely due to bad form but they take forever to heal if you don't rest them properly. If you do run you should ice them afterwards.
