Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Jeff sorry to hear of your loss.

Dealing w. significant fatique subsequent to daughter's premature delivery of a "micro-premie". This is the boy's 1st week birthday. Doing well. Daughter out of the hospital. Due to the cesearian she cannot drive. She did leave hospital yesterday. We are all in wonderment that the moment of routine scan revealed the beginning of a tare of the placenta from the uterine wall. The techie saved two lives that day!

Wednesday's back squats left me stiff for two days.

Today I did:

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

14R+8 pull ups. This is two more rounds than the last time I did this--10/09.

Did 20 minutes of mobility work before the WOD. I am postponing the next round of strength training till I get my sleep and energy back.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Pat, best wishes for your grandson. That must be stressful. I also did that bench/squat main page WOD and am feeling the effects, as you will note below.

[B][U]March 11[/U][/B]
Ran 3 miles (27 mins, HR 132)
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x95#, 5x105#, 5x120#, 5x135#
Lots of stretching and rolling my hip. I will ice my hip tonight.

My right hip is sore (bad kind of sore) from yesterday's WOD (glutes also sore, but the good kind) so I ran nice and easy today and even that was an effort. I need to get back into lifting again, as I have lost some strength. 135# felt pretty heavy tonight.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Keep us informed Pat! Seems like a really great time for a miracle!!!!! (I was maybe 4 lbs when I was born, a twin, LOL. I fit in my uncle's suit jacket pocket, can't imagine that tiny peanut of yours.)
Geez Japan!! the earthquake/tsunami, simply mesmerizing footage, you feel so helpless watching the devastation unfold :(
I feel so self absorbed sometimes, logging my stuff. I guess we're all pretty lucky.
Michelle - I weighed 160 Thurs pm!!! I asked my coach should I lose it, and he said he's all for weight gain, said my lifts would go up and up.

Coach is away, gave me a couple days of training today was light and easy.
[B]Power Snatch & Press Fr. Shoulders[/B]
25kg/2+2 (2)
30kg/2+2 (2)
34kg/1 (4) I did two extra, Dave & Danica were helping me (shot my hips)

[B]Power Clean & Jerk[/B]

Spring break, had to wait for the gym to open. Nice talk with Danica, she's extremely personable, very helpful, down to earth and nice. Pleasure to talk to, lift with and amazing to watch. She was snatching 87kg today, last I counted. All the lifters there are nice to watch!

John J. It must be nice to have such a good place to run stairs. Sounds perfect!

[B][U]March 13[/U][/B]
3x500 yds, stretched between sets for 2-3 mins (9:05 pace every time, surprisingly consistent)
HR in high 130s

Felt good swimming. Hip is better today, but not yet pain free. Will probably roll and ice again tonight.
