Cross fit

Some friends of ours told us about this new fitness hype in America. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning brand. CrossFit combines weightlifting, sprinting, and gymnastics.[1] CrossFit says that proficiency is required in each of ten fitness domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy. It defines fitness as increased work capacity across all these domains and says its program achieves this by provoking neurologic and hormonal adaptations across all metabolic pathways.

I think this could be a nice variaton on our running schedule. Check out this video;

The basics are okay but I would rather do it like this and create my own program;

Maybe we should change our sundaymorning run to a cross work out in the forest? Lifting tree stumps and pulling yourself up in trees, jumping fences and balancing on tree stumps. That would be really cool!
