@Pat. Welcome back! Nice to have you back with us "mature participants." Regards the knee replacement... A friend of ours (65 years old) had a knee replacement this year and his comeback is amazing. He was a serious stud before his knee went south, having competed in the Leadville 100, skijouring in Leadville, CO, and a serious back country runner and hiker. As his knee deteriorated, he was less and less active. Nine weeks after his knee replacement this year, we climbed Handie's Peak, 14,058', in August and he was less than 20 minutes behind me to the top. We skied Copper Mountain, Vail and Keystone this week and he was in the moguls and ungroomed stuff with the rest of us. After seeing his recovery, I no longer fear a knee replacement when it comes time.

Yesterday was day 37 of skiing and over 600,000' feet of vertical for the season. We had wonderful powder days at Copper Mountain and Vail this week. Probably in the top 10 ski days I've had in my life... My guess is a combination of the snow quality and the improvement in my skiing due to lessons this year. We are skiing tomorrow on a powder day with one of our ski instructors; she is a great lady and loads of fun to ski with. I expect to be completely thrashed tomorrow at the end of the day. ;)

Have been doing some lifting (upper body) throughout the ski season but nothing really of note. Just trying not to loose too much upper body strength during the ski season.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Bill you are doing two WOD's per day. Are you now a master's competitor?

Today was a very busy day at the gym:

20 min. treadmill
5 minutes dynamic stretch
5 minutes static stretch

3X4 exercises for agility and coordination with light kettlebells.

Deadlifts: 55333111
(50 to 70),( 75 to 90), and (105 to 125) for the 1's. These were done with dumbbells.
Thought that my Fitbit would show lots of activity. Later found out the battery was dead.:ranting2:

Pat, That Fitbit story was funny!:rofl: Been there, done that!:rofl: I just started doing 5/3/1 in the evenings because the pounds (& my chemical numbers) were going in the wrong directions!

I could only compete in the scaled divisions!!:rofl:

@Bill - Glad to hear your blood doc says you are good to go for a year. Good news indeed!

Day 40 of my ski season (and last day unless some crazy snow happens later this month or in April). 672k' of vertical for the season at seven different resorts. As much as I love skiing, I am ready to get back to the gym, mountain bike, dirt bike and street motorcycle. That is the tough part about Colorado; each morning you have to decide which of the fun things you like are you going to do that day. ;)

17.3 whupped me. Did the men's 60+ scaled. Done after 3 rounds in 17.09. Form on the snatches fell apart and was seriously winded (I don't go beyond that any more). Looking forward to hearing more successful posts. Tough one.
