I know that there aren't runs anywhere near 30 miles at one time, but it seems like it would be much better than "follow mainsite programming and do 3 CFE workouts per week."
I'm not sure I understand why there are two CFE programs that look so different.
Also, does anyone know who is in charge of the CF Journal? I've seen articles advocating more strength work, less CF, and even isolation exercises. Obviously a strength bias, less and less CF, and smarter conditioning (aka not random or using dumb movements) is the natural progression for people who actually desire to be better, but how does HQ let this stuff into the journal? It seems like they would censor that sort of thing. I'm curious as to why that doesn't happen.
