I think I finally get what CrossFit is trying to persuade us - that if you get tired, sweaty, make a lot of pain faces, grimace, breath heavy, etc., that that is the same as having an effective workout.

Reminds me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RescZG3rio

The people at the end weren't even walking briskly to finish.

These are the cream of the crop from regionals? The few regional vids I watched were exhibitions of terrible form.

I haven't been watching, but in all fairness running 3000m in soft sand sounds pretty brutal.

And, though it's only 210m, swimming in the ocean isn't a walk in the park if you haven't done it before. If it's your first time, it's going to be pretty rough.
