But I never doubted that it would work out so well for me once we got going with crossfit workouts. As soon as training camp opened up last fall I jumped right into things doing short 10-12 mile runs twice daily after breakfast and lunch with two long runs each week totaling 20 miles over four weeks leading up to Ohio.
