Jake Sainsbury asks:
I’m curious about your thoughts on the ‘zig zag run’ at the Crossfit Games a few weeks back. I thought it was very cool to see a field-athletics based test get thrown into the mix, and would like to get a glimpse through the PAHQ eyes at an event that is right up your alley. Any chance of a blog post or mention on PA Radio? Maybe chuck in a break down of performance between good/bad/ugly performances? What would both the ‘the fittest on earth’ and the average CFFB follower look at to improve in that kind of test?
