Crossfit Games - MARATHON WHAAAT!

posted by Amanda Jo - 

My next half marathon for St. Jude is coming up in November. The last one I ran was November 2017 where I decided not to particularly train hard. BIG MISTAKE! Things I could just wing in my twenties are not things I can do in my thirties. 

I started my running training plan and I couple that with weightlifting; specifically crossfit. I try to go to classes about 2-3 times a week at "Crossfit Stronger Than Yesterday" in Easthampton. This morning my coach Molly asked if we had been watching the Crossfit Games. How much attention I pay... well I didn't know they were happening til this morning. 

I checked out some of the workouts and the one that's really got me impressed... a marathon row! I thought it was huge when I did a 2K row in about 8:43. A marathon row... that's 42,000 Meters. The top woman finished this incredible feat of strength in about 3 hours. Can you imagine rowing for 3 hours! There's so many other things I'd be willing to do! Watching other people take on these challenges is one of them...  seriously impressive! 

Have you been watching these insane athletes? 

3:34:22.00 and no quit in @alessandrapichelli. #MarathonRow
