CrossFit really does prepare you for just about anything you want to do. My cardio never failed me. My body never failed me. There were some dark moments, but my body moved as much as my brain pushed it. I’ve done nothing but CrossFit for the last nine years and I ran faster than people who specifically trained to run in the Marathon relays. A strong mind is a really powerful thing and can pull you through just about anything. I’ve heard Josh Bridges (CrossFit Games Competitor) talk a few times about being a Navy Seal and completing Hell Week. He always says it is mind over matter. If you can focus only on what you are doing and forget about what needs to be done, you can keep going through just about anything.
