Running in CrossFit: Advice for Athletes

I want to see the elevation of running in the CrossFit Community (and not the endurance kind). Toward that end, some advice for athletes:

Run those 400s like you mean it. It's not a rest between barbell movements.

Know that your max mile time tells me more about your fitness than your max snatch.

Show (the fuck) up for running workouts. Don't stay home because there's a track workout on the board. Your actions here are a comment on your character and your understanding of the CrossFit methodology.

Sprint 100s. Sprint 200s. Go faster, not longer.

The most impressive primal human feat is rapid locomotion. Usain Bolt should be your hero.

Finally, four words to remember: Run. Faster. Get. Fitter.
