thanks!

Any thoughts?
Find a different gym?

You're paying them to help you meet your goals. I'd talk the trainer and ask about ways to accommodate your needs within their framework.

I think the combination with CFE is actually a good way to combine. I will monitor my recovery and soreness level.

Thanks for all the help everyone!

Yuppers, thats why it mentions "3+ Hours After Anaerobic Endurance Strength & Conditioning WOD" above the CFE wod, in order to ensure your body has time to recover from the CF wod before doing your endurance work.

Re: Running as a compliment to Crossfit

As long as you're not doing any seriously high milage running (and from what you described, you're not), you should have no problem running in addition to Crossfit. Once your body is adapted to running for an hour or so a day it requires very little recovery time. Keep on running and if you feel like doing some CFE wods you could check them out and do them on your own time.
