Bio

ATHLETE INFORMATION

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?

2-4 years

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.
