ENDURANCE COACHING FOR CROSSFIT ATHLETES
When Morning Chalk Up sent the triathlon survey last week, I answered. I have completed many triathlons in my day, but only tackled a Half Ironman after I started doing CrossFit. And thank goodness for that! It is my strong belief that I would not have finished (or would not have finished feeling as strong) if I did not have the strength that I gained from doing CrossFit.
When I came to CrossFit in 2010, I was an aways-injured, broken-down runner. Crossfit made me strong enough to stave off running injuries, and I was then able to train for endurance events without getting the common overuse injuries. I took the CrossFit Endurance certification class and began to use that methodology for my training, and never looked back. I subsequently PR'd my Half Marathon, qualified for the NYC Marathon, and successfully completed a Half Ironman.
I am an L2 CrossFit Coach, and was also the Endurance Coach at my box for many years. I have coached countless athletes for running, triathlon and rowing events. The Ironman survey jolted me into realizing that I could and should create a business offering endurance coaching specifically for CrossFit athletes. So was born icoachremote.com.
If you do CrossFit, an "off-the-shelf" training plan will not work. It is entirely likely that you will run too much, CrossFIt too much, and break down prior to race day. I create one-on-one personalized training programs that take into account your longevity in CrossFit, your past endurance experience, and the event you would like to complete.
