Managing the load

So I was introduced to CF a few weeks ago by a trainer at the local 24hr. I am liking it so far.I have never been in good shape, seriously trained, worked out, or been an athlete.

I have been doing my commute with my bicycle for the last year on a regular basis. In addition to doing longer rides 30-62 miles on the weekends. I am now training for a 200 mi ride in July, so have been training since January for that.

Before I was introduced to CF I had been given a weight training routine from a different trainer at 24hr, which never worked with my cycling training. Which required me to lift on cycling days. After a 40 mile ride, I just did not have the energy to go to the gym, and get anything other than a stretching routine done, or sit in the hot tube.

So my question is does a 40-60 mile bike ride count as a Wod for me? I have added swimming 250 yards after the ride, and before the hot tube. I just don't seem to have the capacity to do a full wod after

Thanks in advance for your time.

Re: Managing the load

If your body says the ride counts, then it counts. You can only do what you can do.

You might want to have a look at Crossfit Endurance, which supplements main page Crossfit with endurance-focused workouts.
