Valarie, Perry, & Jim C. - I've tried crossfit endurance WOD's 3 to 4 hours after our box's WOD's. Pretty brutal. The bad thing is that I just can't seem to make the time to squeeze in an additional WOD.

Today was the 1st WOD in almost a week. my schedule has been a mess! [I](And I'm trying to keep a low profile since my weight drops!)[/I]

Pass thoughs & a lot of shoulder stuff.


3 min handstand hold
3 min L sit hold

5 rounds Max ring dips with 3 min rest between rounds


[I]The handstand & L sit holds smoked my arms! This WOD was a lot harder than it sounds![/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
just a heavy gravity day. dragged my a** all day long.

wod 5x10 bench press with bamboo pipe and 16 lb kb. attached with red bands. very strange feeling.

then 20 m. shuttles set to some weird beep thing.

made about 15 or so laps.

on the up side (maybe time will tell) i was one of 10 people from the gym jessie and heather (my coaches) selected for a 4 week food makeover. not sure exactly why i was selected but i agreed to give it a try. it sounds like it will start either by the weekend or early next week.

glad i had those bisckets and gravy and grits and shrimp last week cause i don't think they will be on this 4 week makeover program. :D i was on a real quik trip to the states and had to get my fix because i have yet to find a place here in B.C. that serves either.

[QUOTE=Jim Colby;958749][B][U]Sunday, July 10[/U][/B]
Ran 20 miles (3:30, 650 feet of elevation gain, HR avg. 134, HR max 150, distance PR by 2 miles).

The purpose the run was to extend my "wall" and not to run fast. The targeted pace was at least 2 minutes/mile slower than my best effort. I'm targeting 9 mins/mile for the marathon in Oct and did 8:28/mile for the half marathon. I ran 4 minutes and walked 1 minute, averaging 10:30/mile. 10:30 might have been a touch fast, but not too far off my targeted pace.

I'm not gonna lie, this wasn't much fun. I didn't run until 2:30, so I think it was over 90 degrees. Two 10 mile loops with a nasty little 150 foot climb at the end of each loop. I didn't take much pleasure out of doing the hill the last time around. Overall, the first 10 miles were easy, the next 5 ok, and the last five would not be classified as entertainment. I forced myself to keep walking
after this was over and stretched and rolled thoroughly. Showered and had a little nap, during which muscles I didn't even realize I had started! Anyway, I feel better now. These runs are hard but necessary and worth it.[/QUOTE]

You are clearly in the zone. Very tough run, especially in this heat. Don't forget to eat and drink a lot so you don't waste away.

Thanks guys. It looks like some good training. I'll try it out.

[QUOTE=Michelle Simpson;959031]Valerie I know you didn't ask me, but this was my experience.[/quote]

Im new Michelle .. so greatly appreciate all the earned experience that anyone wants to share. So thank you!

[QUOTE=Michelle Simpson;959031]I started CF 1 year ago, coming from a basic body building style program 3 days a week with HIIT cardio 3 days per week. I had always trained early am 5 days a week and then a slower active rest run on the weekend. Once I started Crossfit I decided to keep up the 5 days on 2 days off. However, it's been a year now and I'm doing more and more of the WOD's rx'd. I'm 48 and a mid week rest day is starting to become a requirement. Depending on the length of the morning WOD I might do some light cardio later in the day as stress relief if I have time as long as it doesn't cause me to fatigue and start struggling on heavy load WOD days.[/QUOTE]

This is pretty much where I am now: 5 days a week, in the morning.

My challenge with adding another WOD is that I teach Yoga fulltime ([URL=""]own my own studio[/URL]), so its a matter of finding a balance between classes and massage appointments ([URL=""]I am a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist[/URL]).

Currently, there is an added heat issue. Here in GA, the temp by 8am is already in the low 80s. By the afternoon, when I may be free, its 90+. This has got me thinking about bringing out the mini-tramp and working on something inside.

Otherwise, I keep my energy level up with green tea, which has greatly reduced the nap time I was doing when I started CF. Mind you, Im still taking an afternoon nap, but only laying down for an hour versus 2hrs pre-green tea.

As I say above .. Im looking for a time slot in my day to incorporate one of these. Lol .. appropriately scaled no less!

The "3 to 4 hours after" the WOD is the same time frame I looking at. Lol .. the only thing left for me to do is .. 3 . 2 . 1 . GO For It!


[URL=""]For my daily WOD .. it was a strength day .. which Im really starting to enjoy.[/URL]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff - love the bamboo with the Kettle Bells attached to them. Tried it on my back squats in an after WOD with a steel bar. Really different feeling. Been thinking of doing that to some weights I have to my Oly bar at home!

Good luck with the eating program!! ;)

Perry - Good time on those WODs

3 x10:
Push Ups
air squats [I]Did 'em with raised arms[/I]
3 rounds with 1 Pood Kettle bell:
8 Goblet squats
Waiter Walk across box (~40 ft), right hand
Waiter Walk across box (~40 ft), left hand

12-9-6 reps
95# OHS
Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) Pull Ups


[I]Short but Brutal WOD! Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) were the limiting factor! I was one of the 1st done with the 1st set of OHS, But the last done with the 1st set of Burpees (Yay! Burpees!). At least I wasn't the slowest![/I]
