I thought we ought to start putting together an effective 5k development training programe for Crossfit Londoners, so I thought we should start assembling some of the literature and experiences we ought to be looking at.
Over the years we have shared talks and experiences from all sorts of people: nationally ranked endurance runners, converts to Crossfit Endurance, and our own members (many with “decent” marathon times)
Tracking our members results (crudely) , those seeking to improve their performances have excelled or crashed, or injured themselves , or just jogged away in bordem to do their own thing (in almost equal measure).
So, this is a “big shout going out” to our members who want to help design the “worlds best 5k running plan”. Suggest sources, regimes , ideas, below.
I think we know better than to be caught up in a bullshit “LSD v intensity” debate, and we probably want to have both ( and a good dose of Crossfit).
Im hoping we can get some of our members on board to help out with supervision, timings, leading sessions etc. But we shall see as the “programme” develops in this thread. Then Ill probably get those interested in “helping out” together for a pow wow!
Chris W shared this with me recently , and I think its a good a place to start as any
