bitchesDid you sign up for the NYC Marathon? Not sure how you are going to get to the start, let alone cross the finish line? Are you a runner already and looking to get better? Hate running, but tired of suffering around the block during WODs? Sign up for our endurance series!

Michele will be holding three running intensives over this year’s running season. Each intensive will include two weekly running sessions: Tuesday nights at 6:30PM and Thursday mornings at 6:00AM at McCarren Park. Sessions will cover running technique, interval training, and teach you how to handle volume.

This intensive is suitable for CrossFitters of all levels of both CrossFit and running experience.

Interested in a marathon-specific training plan? Please e-mail Michele directly at michele@crossfitvirtuosity.com.

    ¬¬With no prior running experience, I applied for the 2013 NYC Marathon and got in. I had been doing Crossfit for about 9 months. I tried to integrate some running workouts into my CF workouts on my own and was looking at a plethora of online training programs—I had no clue what I was doing and it lead to a lot discouragement. After I connected with Michele about a training program, she asked what my goal was, and at the time it was just to finish the race. A few weeks later I started to feel more confident, and thought I just might be able to hit 4:30. As the training Michele programmed was quickly adapting me for the race, my goals adapted as well—my race day finish time was 04:05:46.

    If you’re a Crossfitter with past running experience, I think you’ll find a new, fun, and effective way of training with this program. If you don’t have a lot of running experience and it’s countdown time to your race day—just sign up.
