Chris (on the left) and Vanessa (on the right) ran in the Race For The Cure this past Saturday. Vanessa is one of our newest clients in the 8:30AM MWF Relentless Boot Camp at Lake Pointe. She has only attended boot camp for about 2 1/2 months and has already vastly improved her strength, endurance, and is losing inches weekly. Vanessa said, "This was the 1st 5K I have ever run without stopping." Woohooo!!! Go Vanessa!
"So, the Race for the Cure. I haven't run a 5K in about a year and the only running "training" I've been doing is my CrossFit boot camps and indoor classes. So, most of my running has been of the 800 m or less variety as part of WODs or boot camp workouts. Even so, I dropped about 30 seconds off my previous best 5K time. And, I had enough left over to sprint to the finish, so I could have probably picked up my pace a bit! :-) I wish I could say I was surprised, but I've been doing CrossFit long enough to know that this is how it works -- build your overall fitness, improve overall cardio endurance, and the rest follows. This from someone who, two years ago when I showed up at my first CFC boot camp, was wearing knee braces and on the verge of giving up on running all together because I couldn't run a mile without my knees hurting! Two weeks into boot camp and the knee supports came off and I've never had to put them back on. Did I mention that I love CrossFit!!"
I am so proud of each of these ladies! I am not the least bit surprised at their success from Saturday. Consistency and hard work truly do pay off. Keep up the Relentless attitude. You ladies are showouts!!!
Reminder: FREE workout tomorrow, 11/4, at 9:30AM at Town Lake Under the Bridge.
