Friday 160527 FGB Style

As many of you know, I have been spending my weekends this past month in the training academy for the LA County Lifeguards. The 12 hours days are a toll mentally and physically. BUT, it is a good thing that I use CrossFit to train for life. For the past several months I have been training at least 2 times a week and at most 4 times a week in order to be physically fit, yes, but also to be ready for the unknown and unknowable. Literally. CrossFit has allowed me to bring my GPP (General Physical Preparedness) up to a fairly high level. Which kind of means that I am not REALLY good at any one thing but ok in all. So when I started doing specialized training (lifeguard-run/swim/run) I saw that I was able to make improvements VERY quickly.

There are 25 lifeguard candidates in my class and each day we have an “event” where we tackle some sort of physical challenge (typically some combination of running and swimming) and we are racing for first place. The first weekend I didn’t do so great, I got 16th and 18th place in the event. But because of my CrossFit training my body adapted and I quickly was more prepared for the following weekend, where I place 14th and 16th in the two events. Then another week goes by and I placed 10th and 12th this past weekend.

One thing that is a MUST when utilizing training for anything. That thing is REST. Rest is essential for the body to recover and make improvements. Without adequate rest, the body continually gets broken down without time to make the repairs that are necessary for MAXIMAL improvement.

So get in here and train! And train hard, but then take your rest days and get outside and have some fun. Go for a hike, surf, paddle, or a row, with our Lake Casitas Event. See the hut for more info!
