    Brian MacKenzie, the founder of Crossfit Endurance, contacted us after seeing the video of Chris Solinsky breaking the American Record for 10k.

Crossfit Endurance (http://www.crossfitendurance.com) came about with MacKenzie added Crossfit into his training back in 2005 and has really taken off since 2006. There has been a lot of talk about the size of Solinsky at the longer distances. In MacKenzie's work he believes this be characteristic of the new wave of endurance athletes. Brian also shared a story with us about a girl named Hallie Kuhlman who is an 8-time state champion in Kansas in the 100, 200, 400, and 800.....she is only a sophomore. The structure of her training is based around the Crossfit Endurance training and the results have been great. This is obviously only one case in a small classification in Kansas, but some of the priniciples are similar to that of systems we've seen the group coached by John Cook and Ryan Ponsonby and even someone like Maggie Vessey. To many of us in the "elite running" side of the world a lot of this may sound far out there. Its hard to think of doing less of your main activity as an endurance athlete. Will we see more of this type of training or is it not for track endurance athletes? We thought it was interesting to hear from Brian so take a listen and let us know what you think and if you have any experience with this type of thing.
