Default Trail Running With Brian MacKenzie

Trail Running With Brian MacKenzie
By Brian Mackenzie
In CrossFit Endurance, Running, Videos

January 15, 2012
Trail running—it’s more than you think. So says CrossFit Endurance founder Brian MacKenzie.

“Time and intensity is how you want to look at things,” he says. “First, we look at how long you can literally last.”

A common problem, he says, is an insufficient warm-up.

“Trail running is a very athletic thing. It’s not just running.”

For those who want to compete, his advice is to look at the length of the race and where you can handle running a specific time “at a really good clip.”

“There’s progressing into these things that allows you to have more success in it versus going out and just slogging something out, blowing up in the first 20 minutes and then having to walk the rest of the time,” he explains.

MacKenzie adds: “It’s not the aerobic base that’s going to get you to the finish line. It’s that ability to go hard and be able to do it repeatedly, which is stamina.”

I'd like to see MacKensie (and for that matter Ferris) chased down by a pack of wolves. I would pay to see this on ESPN.

Says they guy who hasn't finished a race in years, wow. The irony is so painfully obvious that I have to wonder if it was done intentionally as a joke.

Quite.

Do they run a specialisation cert? Or is that just for insects?

That's speed.

That's endurance.

Wrong. Try again -- maybe you'll finish something.
