Runners Feed: Take us through a typical day of your life
Crosby Freeman: I wake up between 6:00 and 6:30am, fumble through the dark to get dressed, then I’m out the door for a run, which could be just an easy 5 miles or 14 with some hard stuff thrown in the mix. It all depends on the day and the goal. I live in San Francisco, a mile from Golden Gate Park, so I do most of my running there.
Once the run is in the bank, I do some light stretching, maybe some core if I have time, then it’s shower/quick food/get dressed and I’m in the car for the commute to work, which can be 25 to 40 minutes depending on traffic.
My employer provides some great perks that allow me to keep my running priorities constantly in mind. The office has a gym, so on some days I can steal away during lunch to get in core or cross training. There’s also free breakfast and lunch, so those meals are taken care of during the week and offer what readers here would consider healthy, runner-friendly options.
For dinners, my girlfriend and I try to cook as much as possible. I recently invested in a barbecue ($25 at a garage sale) so I’ve been experimenting with grilling different meats and vegetables.
