Our stamina workout on Monday, May-20 is designed to increase aerobic capacity to achieve a more sustainable endurance curve.  Most CrossFit athletes develop excellent 400m personal record times because 60% of the 400m time trial is anaerobic.  However, their equivalent race performances at longer distances quickly fall due to underdeveloped aerobic conditioning.  Stamina workouts, with your oxygen consumption up to 90% of its max (or 85-92% of your maximum heart rate), will increase your lactate and anaerobic thresholds.
