Re: Crossfit and Triathlons

The CrossFit pillars of Functionality, Intensity and Variety apply fairly well to the Olympic and Sprint distances...though the variety part is limited to three things every time you race and train. At these short distances you can now have a CrossFitesque workout with swimming as you have seen on the website or make up your own. You can go time trial 10 miles and then do one of the girls and then do another time trial. The running combinations are obvious. You can cut down the 3 x per sport per week to two...except for the swimming. Unless your a stellar swimmer, keep working on that. Be a CrossFitter that does triathlons rather than vice versa and I think you will be better off.
