Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hi folks, I't been a while since I popped in here.

Whoa Deb - great avatar photo!

Last time I was here I was planning on changing up my workout to more O-lift and strength work which I did do through to the Spring. It was not as rewarding as I had hoped for plus I hit some kind of strength loss in deadlifting which was unusual for me.

In May I took a planned break from workouts and never got back into a routine. I did get my green card taken care of and I did get a fantastic job in the area but it had/has a huge learning curve - lots of overtime and to top it off it's been really darn hot all summer!

We just bought a house too so now is a good time to get back to a regular routine. It comes with a pullup bar already installed in the garage at least and the streets are safe to go for a run! I wish we had some knowledgeable coaches/trainers here but the city is what it is. I've been stopped and asked about Crossfit, by folks looking for a local program, when I wear my T-shirt (but there is none).

So I plan on reporting in again regularly (after 4 months of nothin'). Nice to see the regulars all still here. I don't see the 2 Dianes though - I hope they are happy and fit.

My plan for this week is to just get back in the groove of dedicating time to workout - 30 minutes 5x a week doing bodyweight stuff and stretching.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
10/4 WOD

5-5-5 Front Squats
Followed by:
25/50 Pull Ups/Double Unders

Front squats felt very strong. My previous bests were 3x165# and 1x185#, so 5x175# is definitely an improvement.

Was barely able to hit one double-under in warm-up, so I was a little concerned about my time. Took a while on the round of 40 to hit my first one, but then I was generally able to string them together in lengths of five to 20 or so. Glad we've been doing pull-ups lately, I can always use the practice! Augie and KJ screamed through this one, good job to you both!
