Athlete: Susan Hirst
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat clean...not so much pure Paleo as I include some grains (steel cut oats, sprouted bread, wild rice, etc) and some dairy (plain greek yogurt).
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
Swimming primarily but also triathlon and some other recreational sports....soccer, bodybuilding .
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I have been combining some crossfit each week with swimming or spinning or running. I vary what I'm doing to allow recovery...as I age it seems much more important to my performance.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I'm not very consistent with crossfit but definitely keep active. In the 2 years since my first crossfit workout (December 2011) I've probably average 5 times per month...largely in part to participating in the Lurong Challenge 2013 and getting in 2x per week now pretty regularly.
