    Yes you do lol. That is some crazy shit. I'm an asthmatic and am now finally feeling well enough to go full on with Crossfit. Good luck with quitting!

      You won't have a choice if you want to keep going with Xfit... it simply won't be possible to improve and you'll never be able to keep up on sprint/metcons

      Is your box doing a hero WOD for Memorial Day? We're doing Murph:

      Run 1 mile (or row 2000 meters)

      100 pullups
      200 pushups
      300 air squats

      Run 1 mile (or row 2000 meters)

      Basically it's 20 rounds of "Cindy" sandwiched between two one mile runs. I'm going to finish or die trying.

        We don't have memorial day in Canada. We have Victoria day, which usually lines up, but this year it was a week earlier than memorial day.

          I'm supposed to do Murph in 8 hours. We'll see - I've been to two of the intro classes....

            Doesn't the crossfit platform specify that workouts shouldn't last longer than like 45 minutes to an hour?

              Some people finished in 30 minutes. I had a DNF - dizziness and plain exhaustion. But that's fine, I'm new to crossfit and haven't really done any HIT longer than about 15 minutes.

                  Your regular Xfit classes tend to the shorter end of the spectrum (unless you're in a box enamored with the "sexy metcon"... but that's another issue LOL)... but Murph (and other WOD's like it) is a "hero" WOD and is made specifically to be ultra-long and ultra-hard to pay tribute to heroes. You can find a list of all the hero WOD's so far at crossfit.org

                    I'll give Murph a try some day - I can squeeze two 7 minute miles. The hardest thing is the pullups - can do a hundred, but it would take a while.
