I had a long conversation with my coach today about my GOALS.
#1 Getting Stronger, gaining muscle, Getting Better at Oly, Run faster (sub 4 marathon)
And he said, read the book "Eat Bacon, Don't Jog" (purchased and downloaded- can't wait to dig in).
The resounding advice I'm getting is that endurance running is keeping me from building the muscle I want. And that's the problem- I'm always going to be a runner- but my paradigm has shifted a little over the past year in terms of what is Fit and what is healthy and loving CrossFit.
I wanted the two passions- endurance sport and strength to neatly co-exist.
Whenever I would lift heavy, my legs were sore and my running time suffered.
If I ran hard before a lift day, my push it effort felt not-so-push-it.
For the next chapter, my focus will be CrossFit and lifting.
I will still run trails on the weekends for the peace it brings to my crazy life.
