Bio

Recreational athlete with a recent background in endurance sports. One time erstwhile powerlifter, but that was long ago. Lately, 7 time Ironman and have done over 70 marathons including the Mohican 100 Miler. Coached over 200 people to marathon success as part of a non-profit team. Knee injury in 2011 kicked me a bit, but CrossFit has been instrumental in getting me back on track. Professionally, in IT sales.

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Most difficult part for me is nutruition, as I am on the road 3-4 days a week. Working hard to keep a Paleo focus, has it has been key in helping me reach fitness goals.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I add 5 day a week CrossFit to my running program, which is 4-5 days a week.

My Athletic Background

I regularly play recreational sports

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

Signed up for CrossFit to break me out of a self-imposed rut. I have coached runners, and thought I knew how to rehab my broken knee. I was wrong. CrossFit coaches, at least the CFA coaches, are all outstanding and have taught this old dog some new tricks.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

As I mentioned, 5x a week CrossFit, with 4-5x a week running. Makes for a nice combo.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

6-12 months
