God bless Crossfit and Crossfit Endurance
So I have never been a runner and I have been biten by the running bug! I have really grown to enjoy, yes I am about to say it-RUNNING! On my way home tonight I had this urge to go run! Seeing as it is drizzling outside and I did not have a buddy to join me in the darkness at 6:30pm, I thought to myself-I could go run on the treadmill at 24hour Fitness.....OMG, I am so thankful for the box and the endurance classes/saturday runs! Stepping foot back into the corporate america gym was not the worst . It was the fact that not only was the gym crazy packed with the "gym rats" but as I was running at 7.0 mph and my treadmill did not stop only once BUT 3 FREAKING times!!!
I finally was able to go to another treadmill and finish my run after having to stop and wait about 10mins!
All I have to say is thank goodness for Crossfit, Crossfit endurance, the great coaches and all my new found peeps I have made at the box!!!
It will have to be snowing, freezing and a tempature of 20 degrees before I will go back in there!

Yep Dev - you might have crossed the line by stepping back into a corporate gym. I don't know if we can be friends anymore! Just kidding!
I think Dev not only loves running now, but she is now obsessed with it! I love it! Of course, the sign of a TRUE runner is to say "to heck" with the drizzle and get a rain-run jacket and take that run outside.
In the event you ever find yourself back on a treadmill in the gym, first of all, please do not share that information with anyone. There are just some things you need to keep to yourself. Second, the workout to do is Treadmill Tabata - set the treadmill at a 12% incline. 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 8 rounds. This is an official CF Endurance workout. Not only will you be gasping for air, but it will ensure that you are kicked out of that corporate gym forever!
manthony 02/04/2010 23:01:07You think you can just go run on any available treadmill that tells you you'll be safe from the weather and we'll be ok with it? Phhhhhhft We're totally breaking up with you. It's over! (You missed an awesome endurance wod tonight)
