I do like to do just one day of straight cardio, though. Running, exercise bike, pool. It's still a workout, but you get a nice break from all the other things.
Crossfit will totally get the job done. I just need a day where I'm focused on one thing. Plus, the pool is a really nice and refreshing way to work out. Depending on where you live. I'm in Cali so swimming is a must.
It's part of the crossfit philosophy to do things like this. You're doing it right if on your off days you go for a run, bike ride, swim, play basketball, play football, do MMA, anything. It's all about challenging your body in every way possible.
Plus, sometimes it's just nice as hell to look at those 155 lb. Thrusters and be like "F you, I'm not doing you today." haha
