The snow necessitated a change in my running plans, so I decided to “make lemonade” as they say. I then discovered my hardest workout to date – a quarter mile obstacle course run through 1-1/2 feet of snow. I’m telling you this was tough! Forget mud, give me the snow!
Have you ever tried running this way? If you want a good leg burn and also to destroy your hips and lower back muscles, you haven’t seen nothing till you’ve put the stuff mother nature dumped on us to good use. Try a half mile sprint. You will probably be shocked and humbled, as was I. I also think you will find that it’s the perfect supplemental routine if you engage in winter sports or anything else that requires lower body strength and stamina. Crossfit at it’s best….. I’m gonna be at least 4 days in recovery after this….
