Yes but is what you did Crossfit?

I seem to remember you adding in periodized strength training = Not Crossfit
I believe you said you took rest days/weeks = Not Crossfit
Havn't you been focusing on the Olympic lifts and skill work? = Not Crossfit

Thankfully Greg Glassman has been very clear with his definitions:

Crossfit is:
"Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, Executed at High Intensity"

in order to achieve:
"Work Capacity Across Broad Time and Modal Domains"

We cannot just start calling all well thought out training Crossfit. That would be a fallacy and grossly misleading. Maybe Crossfit introduced you to the principles that lead you to the training you do now, that is true of myself, but that DOES NOT make all your future training Crossfit.

I think this is the fundamental idea causing discrepancy in this discussion.
