By the way not really a big fan of running forward!

Last time I recall this sucking. So the assumption is, it will still suck, but not as bad?

Treadmill is on the blink and it's a bit too cold to run outside. Going to sub 45 minutes on the bike.

I've been really sick for the past week. I am bummed that I have missed some workouts that look like alot of fun. Hopefully, I'll return to crossfit in the next couple of days.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Shawn Becker at February 1, 2010 5:22 PM

At least it is not 800m backwards!

Comment #12 - Posted by: Anna at February 1, 2010 5:23 PM

Hmmm, not sure if my knee is ready for this much running at a time. Looks like I'll have to take some small breaks in between.

Is there a technique for running backwards?

There's not much technique to running backwards except stay on your toes, keep your butt low and focus on small steps and arm movement.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Brian/m/19/6'3"/225 at February 1, 2010 5:54 PM

soccer field, here we come. we holding it down crossfit style down here in costa rica. i know i hear a lot about people running in freezing temperatures, and hats off to ya. i participate when working out back up in the midwestern winters, but i live in costa rica now. also used to commercial fish in alaska so i know about doing work in cold. bud down here we run outside too, in over 100 degree temperatures and 90% humidity. today, we had muscleups outside (hang our rings in a tree) and run 400s out in da heat. we hit the workouts on our lunch break so we get the heat of the day. we were just talking today about this. it's good to run in your environment because if you train for life (which most of us are), you'll likely need to run outdoors. keep up the good work folks, and if you're headed to costa rica, hit us up down here and we'll show you how we roll...puttin up some mad times on the wods.

Choices, choices. Enduring questioning stares and possible reprimands (yet again) at the school Globogym, or doing this in front of the house, where my neighbor last saw me doing the standing broad jump workout...

hmmmm... Two doctors have told me not to run anymore (one for my knee the other for my back). Guess I get to choose what I do tomorrow as I cannot imagine a way to sub this rowing...

If this is your first Griff, something magical happens when you switch from that first backpedal into a regular run.

First time with Snatch bal. Focused more on form than time. Pretty fun number and will be fun to get going fast-or upping the wt! ;)

Comment #27 - Posted by: in8girl at February 1, 2010 6:31 PM

I've noticed it's always the WODs that look easy are the ones that really kick your butt! Can't wait to run backward on the treadmill at globo gym in the morning! I'm wearing the 40 pound vest all month, so this one should really get some looks, laughs, and stares. Oh well, I'm usually the only one who is soaked after my workouts. CROSSFIT!!! Love it!!!

Comment #28 - Posted by: ALX M/31/5'7/255 at February 1, 2010 6:32 PM

I hope I don't fall on my ass! I did a year an a half ago when I was refereeing a passing league game. A gremlin jumped out and knocked me ass over head. It would have been quite funny had I not partially torn my PCL!

Comment #29 - Posted by: Darren, Pasadena, CA, 38m/5'10"/225lbs at February 1, 2010 6:32 PM

I was thinking about running this on an elliptical on a solid resistance...but who knows, maybe I'll nut up and do it on a treadmill. Already got looks yesterday taking up four sections.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Chadd Kaiser at February 1, 2010 6:39 PM

I am planning on using a treadmill for this workout. Any suggestions on the speed and incline i should use for the forward running? Backward?

Comment #31 - Posted by: justin at February 1, 2010 6:55 PM

i hear a 2 to 3 for incline is good, and the speed is all up to you for forwards. going backwards is going to be hard and weird on a treadmill.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Jonathan Dinh at February 1, 2010 6:58 PM

To #19

1 lap around a football field track should be 400m which is also pretty much 1/4 mile.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Mike (21/5'10"/170) at February 1, 2010 7:01 PM

I'd been scouting Crossfit out to shake up the workouts for me and my husband and we had planned on starting tomorrow AM... Backwards? Running? Argh!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Deidre at February 1, 2010 7:10 PM

#13:
in addition to Brian's comment about staying on your toes with your butt low when running backwards, I would suggest "head in the middle of your stance", especially if you want to (try to) go fast.

that is, if your head is too far back in your stance, you will fall flat on your a$$. if your head is inclined too far forward, you will go very slowly.

Used to do a lot of backwards running/backpedaling for basketball -- seen lots of guys fall backwards on their butts when they got tired or got their heads out of the middle of their stance.

Good luck all.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Cope at February 1, 2010 7:15 PM

Damn, I've been waiting for a running WOD but don't have the time to do this one!!

Going to sub with this:

5 rounds
25 Burpees (with full pushup)
30 26kg SDHP

Don't have a rope for double unders, and don't have a rower so this is gonna be it for me today ;).

Comment #36 - Posted by: David 25/5'7"/75kg at February 1, 2010 7:19 PM

Gonna do a treadmill as well - guessing 6 mph to 7 mph?? Maybe incline of .5? I just don't want to fall off! This is gonna rock!

I just started crossfit four weeks ago.. I've seen great results my bench max increased 40 lbs to 335 now and before crosfit I wasn't doin sh*t for a couple months.. It's hard wrkin 2 jobs n only getin 3 hrs asleep evryday. When I miss some workouts I really feel like just quiting my 2nd job just to do crossfit.. I love it..

Comment #41 - Posted by: BK at February 1, 2010 7:42 PM

Hm, might rain tomorrow, is it cool if I try subbing 100 SDLHP (1000m row) for the 800m runs and 50 Thrusters (closest thing I can come up with to a backwards row for a guy who doesn't have a C2) for backwards run?

Comment #42 - Posted by: Dan Orozco at February 1, 2010 7:56 PM

YIKES!!! I knew the time was comeing!!! This and Karen are my two least favorite wods. I have never felt such soreness the day after ever - plus my fear of falling on my rear when i run backward lol :)

Calf Burn to the extreme!
Use to run backwards for wrestling... it sucked then can't imagine how bad it'll suck now.

Comment #48 - Posted by: Scott at February 1, 2010 8:49 PM

Sounds fun. And I'm surprised by some of the negative comments. If you don't like the program, don't do it. Crossfit has been the best thing to happen to me in the past 2 months. If the coaches say run backward, I'm gonna do it with a smile on my face. By the way, I miss the bad@$$ Bingo chronicles already.

DAN OROSCO,

Nothing like Running in the Rain! run in the Rain, it would be fun, Everybody that is running backwards in the treadmill record yourself so you will have a good memory in case you fall in your butt, wouldn't recommended it, I am a strong runner and I saw a comment about the running stance when running backwards, that's true about the "head in the middle of your stance" it will help your time if you run fast and it is also true when changing gears from backwards to running forward something special happens. LOL! especially if you go fast and never done the workout, that's true too, weird feeling, I can't wait to knock out this one. it is more like a break from the thrusters and the Muscle ups from yesterday, when I first started Crossfit I struggle with 65 pound thrusters, I mean almost impossible, yesterday WOD, DID all the Muscle ups in the pull up bar unbroken and all the thrusters unbroken, it feels good to accomplished something new. So that's a new PR for me as far as thrusters goes, that means the FRAN time is going down when it comes around, From not being able to do a 95 pound thruster 2 years ago, to do 1 x 95 pound thruster, to do a couple of thrusters, to finish FRAN in 23 minutes, to finish FRAN in 7 minutes, HA!!! Progress is ON GOING, goal time for FRAN in the future is to finish it under 4 minutes, HAVE A GOOD ONE. This is why I try to do all the workouts either from the Website and or an Affiliate.

This was a pretty fun WOD. I will try it again and should be able to shave a good chunk of time off. Running harder during the 800m portion is doable now that I know what to expect for the backwards run.

Comment #58 - Posted by: Jason at February 1, 2010 11:06 PM

15mins 38secs. Would be easier to do now that the running backwards part is known to me.

Hot tip, when you change from the first 400m into the second 800m, get ready to rebalance yourself, and feel jelly legs.

Good WOD

Congrats on putting the rest of us, who still respond to high risk incidents, in more danger because someone wants to make money. Fantastic!

Deployed service member here dedicating my limited gym time to Crossfit for the next six weeks. The WODs never look that challenging on paper but I'm a very satisfied participant thus far.

Time for the day was 16:45.

Being on the treadmill backwards got some unusual looks. Could have been because I was backwards or because I was as uncoordinated as the Tin Man. Smoker on the calves, great workout.

Thanks for your sacrifice Griff. We will never forget.

Do not worry, SWAT magazine is for pretenders; I don't think they will give away any secrets.

I believe I saw James Yeager in that video using profanity when instructing someone on hesitation in a fight. Very ironic because James Yeager should have "Leave all men behind" tattooed in yellow down his back for his recorded actions under fire. Google James Yeager and the first suggested result is "James Yeager COWARD". That just goes to prove that SWAT magazine is chock full of fail.

However, this publicity is good for CrossFit because all the pretenders that badly need PT, will be showing up at boxes.

#74,
CrossFit getting exposure on TV isn't a bad thing... lighten up. And by the way, the Magazine has been around for years and I don't think that they "giving away" any secrets.

#85,

I have known plenty of people who are operational SWAT guys that read the magazine, just like I know plenty of people that read Soldier of Fortune too. I look at it like reading tabloids, I don't do it, but why judge the people that do. And by the way, the TV show is pretty good. Lot's of good training tips there.

I was suprised when I say the preview for "the 40" in the journal. The Gentalman speaking and teaching is Rafael(Raf). I had the pleasure of working under and learnig from him at UT. He is the strength and conditioning coach for the University of Tampa. This guy know his stuff. I learned more form him in a year than I did my whole college career in training and coaching athletes. If you have the pleasure of being coached by him take it all in. He is one of the best.

I attended the Level I cert at Crossfit OneWorld this past weekend and had a great time. I would recommend it to anyone who aspirations to be a trainer or if you want to learn the movements better for yourself.

Felt too fast and I had to look at the WOD again to make sure there was not another lap in there somewhere and then 'rethink' my run to make sure I ran enough.

The backwards run felt strangely comfortable and fast! I was on my toes the whole time and lifted my heels high on each step. Felt like the 'pose' running in reverse...LOL...

Setting: Lowe's Grove Middle School (abandoned) track
Temperature: 38
Weather: Light rain
Conditions: Half the track icy, half merely wet

About as unpleasant as it sounds. The only good thing about having no breaks in between the runs is the fact that the pain stops sooner. Pleased with the 800's. Ran the first 800 at ~90-95% race pace, thankfully I had enough in the tank to still go hard for the rest of the WOD. Just trying to survive and keep good form on the second 800. As expected, calves and quads were burning going backwards. Only slipped and fell once, at the end, hitting the stopwatch. At that point, I was happier on the ground anyway.

Distance Split Time Total Time

400m (F) 1:25 1:25
800m (F) 1:25 2:50
1200m (B) 2:45 5:35

I just didn't think I'd be able to run backwards on a treadmill so I didn't do it. Then I check here and you guys are running backwards on a treadmill! I'm gonna have to try it!

Left the treadmill for a hallway and did the backwards run there!

Comment #146 - Posted by: StewC M/51/5'11"/170 at February 2, 2010 10:34 AM

I like others thought this was going to be easy, I was WRONG. running the 800 no prob, after about 25 feet of running backwards I really had to motivate myself.

People were looking at me funny when I started to motivated myself by yelling at ME "come on fatboy you can do it."

30 pullups because I miss them

Various sprint style exercises: 800m run, Double unders (rope broke, that's 2 different ropes I've broken in 2 days, teach me to buy a £2 replacement rope), 400m row.

Absolutely wiped from previous 5 days, rope breaking pretty much killed the session, will have to get a decent one this time.

I was not going to run backwards on a treadmill so just did a good paced 3 miles in 17:40. This is my second week with CrossFit and am pretty sore from having barely ever done squats/thrusts/etc before. Despite the soreness I was surprised how powerful yet smooth I felt on the treadmill and was able to do the 3 miles 20 seconds faster than I had done the week before I started crossfit.

Of course at first it all seemed good. Once the 2nd 800 started it was a big hit! I love that every time I wanted to lay down on the track right there, my brain would remind me it was a Hero WOD and then I would get movin! Would love to do this again in a few weeks!

Rx'd 11:38. Ran on the Denver Manual Arts High School track, home of the Bolts! Nice day, a little chilly but the sun was out. Never done this one before, my main goal was to not injure myself. It went okay, turning around to run the second 800m was an odd feeling, just went easy for 200m until I felt more normal.

Buy in: weighted pullups 3-3-3-3 45-70-80-80(2). Think I can get all three reps of that last set at 80 next time.

CFWU x 2

Just bought a pair of Vibram KSOs and today was the first run in them. So, rather than end up with friction points that kept me from the next workout, I scaled.

On a grassy field, inside a track, I ran four sets of two minutes forward, one minute backwards. By the end of the each cycle, my calves were glad for the change of direction. Over the course of four sets, I could see improvement on the distance covered for both two minutes and one minute intervals

11:45 as RX'd. I think I lost some time here because I walked the first 70m or so of the 1st backwards 400, not realizing, somehow, that I was fully capable of running backwards.
the only split I caught was that I was at 2:54 after the first 800, so just over 10mph there. I tried to do that the second time, but was too beat to check my ipod to verify. Good workout.

Wrongfully assumed our school track was 400m and upon seeing my time I knew it was too good to be true. Track was in fact only 250, so I did:

500m run
250m backwards
500m run
250m backwards

7:38

Had I kept that pace for the full rx'd distance, it would've been around 12:15, but I doubt I could've done that. I was slowing down big time near the end, even with this shortened WOD.

Also did 3x5 bodyweight bench.

I'm going to this WOD again sometime soon on a rest day, as rx'd this time, it was fun.

I didn't think backward running would be this hard.

25/m/185#

Ran a big box around a football field that I think was 400m/lap (felt like it). Did this in Chicago's latest snowfall, which was great for when I fell.

Around the last lap, I was sucking air and having an all around bad time with my last 1/2 lap. In my head rang "for Griff," and I pushed the rest of the way.

RIP soldier, and thank you AND YOUR FAMILY for your service to this country.

Today's workout made me realize why I love CrossFit and truly enjoy coaching. Earlier our 4:30 class attacked the WOD as they always do - with humor and determination. Everyone gave it their all and scored excellent times. One lady who came in last made it in a little over 24:00 min, well behind the rest of the group. But that's not what's important.

What impressed me the most was her sheer determination to complete the workout. Neither snow, cold, or darkness would deter her. To me, that display of determination and willpower is what CrossFit is all about. It's the attitude that screams, NO MATTER WHAT, I WILL NOT QUIT! I can't express how satisfying and inspiring it is to coach her.

11:32 as rx'd... on a treadmill at north jersey globo gym - yeah I got a few funny looks.

Of course, regular running on a treadmill is fine, I ran the first 800 at between 9.0 and 10.0. However, I had to run backwards at a 6.0 to make sure I didn't fall off. The second 800 I ran a little slower, but the last 400 I did at a 6.5. Overall, pretty happy, but I can't wait to do it outside.

Coming up on my one month crossfit anniversary... What a difference a month makes.

I also love going to my north jersey globo gym and watching the typical workout guys doing their stuff. So what if they look at me funny for running backwards on a treadmill. It's way funnier for me to look at them and say, "Nice tricep extensions/bicep curls superset." I was there a month ago and now I know how wrong I was.

This was really fun and really hard. You know when you look at the wod the night before and you think "oh, that shouldn't be too hard" and then you find out that crossfit will just reach right out and smack you in the head.That is what happened with this one. My training partner actually broke a sweat on this one, and he never sweats.I, on the other hand, create large puddles of sweat on every wod. great fun.

Could have done a lot better, I was nervous for the reverse 400 meters. Should've been more of a full sprint. Live and Learn. Love it!

Too cold to run outside (for time) and no treadmill, so I subbed 100 reps of normal 24" box jump for the running 800 meters forward and 50 reps of reverse 24" box jump (jump onto the box with your back to it) for the running 400 meters backward. Did that twice. Calves! OW!

Last time I did this was in 2008. I was 46 years old and weighed 202. Completed then as Rx'd 13:35

Today as Rx'd 13:38 No disappointment here.
(Big Grin)

Started out and the legs felt a bit heavy. Then my upper body and arms started to tighten up. Completely forgot about the legs ha ha ha. Did not really start to relax until about the middle of the second 800.

Focused on trying to keep a good POSE form.

I tried doing 30 MUs for time and then "Griff" but thanks to me being off for 2 months, my body sorta forgot how to do MUs! I did manage to get 2 in though. It was weird though because right when I first came back, I was still able to do MUs. I guess today was just an off day

To get rid of the frustration, I just moved on and did "Griff"

My time: 14:29

Don't worry. I'll be back...

12'51.43" Rx'ed

Stole into the local HS track around 8pm in the dark. Track's still about 1/3 buried in snow and there was a headwind (of course it felt like there was one then none, but this means there was a tailwind on the other side of the oval).

Warmed up with a 9 min mile, which is a half decent pace for a running hater like me.

1st 400 finished in 1'47"
2nd 400 in 1'45"
Then first backward run took 2'58" That was slow! Definitely didn't have a feel for how fast I could go, especially w/o falling on me arse in the snowy part
Round 2
1st 400 in 1'51"
2nd in 1'49"
Then managed to pick up the backward pace to finish it in 2'40". Focused on making the most of the parts that were clear of snow.

This was certainly the strangest WOD so far. Cold too!! More like a shuffle step backwards and I felt like I was in a movie on rewind. Once I got over that it felt like I was being pulled by a chain or vacuum. Happy to get to the 2nd 800 (what?) until I realized my legs were stone.

Sledge & I did this in a light snow before the blizzard of 2010 hits. We are sick and demented....what can we say, we're CROSSFITERS!

Did at a leisurely pace I must say

Did this one on a treadmill. I quickly realized running backwards at any pace would be futile if I were going to need to hold on the entire time. I felt the workout would have been better to just sub in 400M "recovery runs" between 7.0-7.5 MPH instead.

It was really windy on the track today. I think I can break 10 min next time. This was my first time running backwards and I took it too conservatively the first 400m backwards.
