I think there is a HUGE dysfunction when it comes to people really understanding what CrossFit is and what its all about.  I have seen articles written, comments made that, seem to, rip holes into Crossfit and what it, and the community are about.  To really debate all the completely incorrect points, I would be typing all night but ill give you one right now:  What makes a workout a crossfit workout?  Is running a 10k crossfit?  Is doing Fran crossfit?  The answer is yes to both and no to both depending on how it used.  Crossfit is Constantly Varied, Functional Movements Done at High Intensity with the the intent on increasing your fitness.  Fitness is defined as Increased Work Capacity over Broad Time and Modal Domains.  So, if you are using a 10k as one of your constantly varied movements at a particular intensity but you are ONLY doing it every so often, AND you are doing it with the intent of increasing some of the 10 characteristic of fitness, then yes it is.  If you are doing Fran, probably the most famous CrossFit workout of all time, and you do it 3 times a week and you are trying to get faster and faster at your Fran, then you are NOT doing Crossfit.  In all reality, there isnt any 1 workout that IS Crossfit.  Crossfit is a program consisting of many movements, put together many different ways in long and short duration with a particular purpose.  You would have to look at the program as a whole, its goal and its progress to determine whether its Crossfit or not.  Its VERY important that EVERY Corssfitter understands this idea so that you know why you do what you  do.
