Thank you to our athletes who participated in our Real Talk: Assessing Your Progress, Work Ethic and Lifestyle Survey that we posted last month. We hope you used it as an opportunity to celebrate your progress and strategize around obstacles. We appreciate your time and candor and wanted to let the whole box know the types of feedback we got.
"One of the immediate benefits to incorporating E-WOD’s into my workout is my freed up schedule. My boyfriend is pretty pleased with the fact that our life no longer revolves my training, and I’ve even stopped wearing compression socks out on date night. Next, my body and mind were thrilled to be incorporating a mix of distance and high intensity (intervals, sprints) workouts. Don’t get me wrong, I like to run, but dragging yourself out of bed just to log miles can become tedious and oh–so-not fun, so adding variety to my workout helps. Finally, within a few weeks, I started to see improvements in my running. My race pace has dropped, I do not fear hills (up or down) and I look forward to running again."
