Long distance running will help your endurace at--long distance running! I have empirical evidence to go along with the scientific. Before starting CrossFit, I was training for a marathon. I could run forever. On the mat, my endurance was no better than before I started running. After starting CrossFit, my endurance on the mat went way, way up. It makes sense if you think about it. You jog/run and your heart rate is in the 135 bpm range. What is it when you do jiu jitsu? Much higher. To get in shape for this, you must train at a much higher heart rate. After CrossFit, rolling is easy.
