Ok, ok, I'll see. But still, it may take time to stray away from my hour-long workouts. I like my workouts to be short, quick and intense, but still feel one hour is the magic number, You know what I mean?

Well, just give it more of an effort for the 30 minutes that it takes to do a CrossFit workout. Then, if you really gave it all you could, count the 30 minutes that you are doubled over dry-heaving as the second half of your workout.:proud:

actually, I did the 12 Thruster and 12 Pullups for five rounds, and it took me about 15 minutes. I was wiped out after the first round, so I took a min rest. Than I went all out for 2 rounds, took another min rest. Than, I did 8 thrusters and 10 pullups for the last two rounds, and rest for about 5 minutes. Than I went and jogged for a half hour.

What do you mean by dry-heaving?

Have you ever thrown up so hard that nothing comes out? That is dry heaving. Instead of jogging, for half an hour, you should be concentrating more effort on setting a faster pace on the workout of the day and eliminating the rest between rounds. Pick some weights that are doable for you and push the hell out of yourself.

Trust me, if you give it your all, you don't need jogging.
