Having coming from an endurance background the short intense crossfit style often leaves me thinking I should do more. Of course some of the workouts I cannot do with the prescribed weights so I am far from finding the workouts easy. Anyone doing any supplementary work? Seems a lot of martial artist/combat types use Crossfit. How about folks doing endurance type efforts?

Do not take this the wrong way but I would suggest that you read or re- read the "Foundations" section of this website. This will explain how and why the WOD is all you need.
The WOD will cover your "main" conditioning needs all your other needs will be met by your sport skills training or your job skills training.

I hope this helps.
Also, the journal is extremely helpful.

I get the journal and it is well done. I really want to hear from folks like cross country skiers or cyclists( my jones is mountain biking) and how they balance Crossfit and longer efforts. I don't race anymore but I like to be able to ride hard and dog out the young guys. While Crossfit workouts are great for overall fitness there is no way to be prepared for hard three hour rides except to ride.

If I were you, I would do the crossfit workout on days when you do not ride. On an endurance training day, then do not do the WOD.

Jeff,

That is pretty much what I was planning on doing.
Sometimes I still find myself wanting to do a bit more than the WOD so I do some rope jumping, dynamic stretching and kettlebells as a warm up. Then I will follow the WOD with some stretching.
