Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
great job on 13.1 guys and girls

after seeing the aftermath in the gym today i am glad i am only doing lower body work for a bit


3 x 60 yards with 45 lb plate on sled and 20 lb ankle weight each ankle

forward, backward and side step each side

was very glad it was over. this was one of the worst sled workouts i have done to date.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Yes, driving the green or laying up does describe so many of our dilemnas...

Saturday March 9, 2013

Feeling worked from 13.1 yesterday.

Going to a nutrition seminar today, then walking around the farm and playing in the barn with the kids.

Walking and stretching and playing today will be just right. Skills (dubs, hspu) and mobility and a light wod will be just the ticket for tomorrow...

Cliff Miller 03-09-2013 12:09 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
jim you are right on that...jt thanks for that little gem

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hello friends,

Haven't been here for ages but always think about all of you "Masters"
It is great to see alot of familiar faces still posting their progress and encouraging others.
As for me I have been so busy with Ministry commitments and "wesseling" with the grandkids (along with 4-5 days of Crossfit and a running) that i haven't been able to get to the boards very often.

The good report is I made a MAJOR GOAL this last year that "I would not get hurt" doing silly stuff and I succeeded!!--My wrist injury two years ago is now healed about 90% (still can't hold a false grip on the the rings:mad:) my shoulder separation is healed 100% and I have been concentrating on upper body strength and shoulder mobility and it is paying off big time (Patience is a virtue)
I was determined to again compete in the Masters division 60+ this year and Friday managed to get 146 total reps in 13.1 (goal was to make it to the 3rd round) fell a little short but was excite to be able to only get beat by (2) of our young ladies and only one of them was "Pregnant" :pepper:
Today is rest day and wishing all of you great success in all that your are doing

Be Blessed!

Tim R:thanx:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Awesome work on 13.1 everyone! Helen, Tim, Welcome Back!! Been thinking of you guys!!

JT - What great deal of meat you've given us to cogitate on!! ;)

After a week and a Friday when I had to give up anything CrossFit because my Anatolian Sheep Dog pulled a stitch & bled all over, I did 13.1! Aside from the Snatches and Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!), I wonder what the fuss was all about!!:rofl: Finished with 149 in a squat gasping for breath!! If I'd been a little more efficient, 150+ might've been doable!

Everyone NEEDS to check out John Burch's Video on the games site to see how it's done!! Awesome job, JB!!

Helen M Brennan 03-11-2013 05:40 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
great work John.
146 !! woohoo Tim thats fantastic.

Wiliam.. you mention Anatolians.. working as guardians I assume?? I have maremmas here in queensland guarding my sheep and goats..
Congrats on 13.1 149..lordy that 150+ was just a short gasp away.

12 Thruster 25kg ( scaled to 15kg bar 6 thruster, 6 push press)
9 toes to bar (scaled to knees to chest)
200m run with 6kg med ball ( could not find a reason to scale this one LOL)
time 24:39
then 70 burpees ( part of a 100 day burpee challenges )
and 1 hour at my local gym in support of my friends fitness journies.

Welcome back, Chaplain Tim!

Epic posterior chain soreness subsided enough thanks to fish oil and
massage . . .




Uphill walk
3 Uphill Sprints (:15 @10 degrees @9MPH)

Jim Cordes 03-11-2013 10:45 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Good to hear from you again Tim!

3/9 WOD

Redo Open WOD 13.1
40 Burpees
30 Snatch, 75 / 45 lbs
30 Burpees
30 Snatch, 135 / 75 lbs
20 Burpees
30 Snatch, 165 / 100 lbs
10 burpees
Max rep Snatch, 210 / 120 lbs

I got one snatch at 135# with about 5 seconds to spare! Went super slow to save energy for the 135 snatches, time after 75# snatches was 9:28. I had about 4 minutes to get the 135 snatch. Four or five missed reps before I got it. Really pressed it out!


Jim Cordes 03-11-2013 11:00 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/11 WOD

A1. Backsquat, 20X1, 2-3 reps, 4 sets, 1:30 rest
Depth issues on first set, probably later sets too but nobody said anything. I tried to get deep enough. Bar felt really heavy today.

A2. Ring Pushups, 20X2, AMRAP, 4 sets, 1:30 rest
17-12-14-10? (Time running short, kind of rushed the last set)
These felt heavy today too.

B. AMRAP 15:00
10 Turkish Get ups (5R/5L) (25# dumbell)
20 Weighted* Box Step ups (10R/10L) (2 25# dumbbells, 24" box)
30 Situps
2 rounds + 10 TGU's + 2 step ups.
TGU's took forever, even with relatively light weight. Stepping up 24" with 50 extra pounds no joke. I needed second leg assist to get all the way up on all reps.

Everything slow and heavy today, probably still gassed from doing 13.1 on Saturday and losing an hours of sleep with change to daylight savings time.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

first 130 or so were not to bad the last 70 sucked

Wendler 5/3/1
Month 1/Week 2
Dead Lift Day

Suitcase DL's


Tabata Situps

Anyone else look at the main page WOD today? 185 pound overhead walk? WTF? LOL.

Jim Cordes 03-13-2013 12:39 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/13 WOD

A1. Deadlift, TnG, 3 reps, 4 sets, 1:30 rest
Stayed at 275 since Baker pointed out my back was pretty rounded on first set.

A2. Ring Dips (Kipping), AMRAP (1 sec rest at top), 4 sets, 1:30 rest
Thought I lagged it a bit on the first set. Kipping helped.

B. 1000m Row FT
About 1:52 pace to start, then slowed to about 2:00. Three seconds off my PR.

Legs still pretty fried from back squats on Monday and deadlifts this morning. Don't think there is any way to improve my 1K row time other than be willing to embrace a bigger suck. I am going to start ProAnox twice per day and see how it works. This should be a good time to test since I have been working pretty hard on WOD's lately.

Got in a couple of hours volunteer coaching this afternoon. Very rewarding to see a woman go from zero dubs to ten dubs. Which reminds me... Jeff? Are you speeding up your hands???

Did I mention I will be stepping up and stepping down in 13.2?


Bill Hoogsteden 03-14-2013 06:58 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
JT - Word!! As someone who's torn an Achilles Tendon (albeit the "right" way (Parallel to the leg!) :D) being careful is the way to go!

[I]Tried 145# & 155#, but could not get low enough. Got to stay TIGHT! The metcon was 5 rounds, but my knees were killing me through the squats and thrusters and my elbow was hurting with the chip ups. :mad: Took discretion being the better form of valor & ended it before getting hurt any more.[/I]

Helen M Brennan 03-14-2013 11:47 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Pat Quigley 03-15-2013 11:00 AM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
William, found that I can do box jumps if the landing is soft. We have a gymanstics half moon. On its side, it's about the same as a box. Found that I can jump on it without knee pain.

Deadlift day.

5X5 DL @275 w. two sets of chains for speed strength

Congratulations to everyone on their Games results.

Welcome back Chaplain Tim and Helen.

3/11-14 Skiing
1 day at Breckenridge, 1 day at Vail, and 2 days at Keystone. Skiied everything: bumps, trees, bowls, a powder day and groomers.
Approximately 112K feet of vertical over four days and 36,700+ yesterday.
Took a hard spill late Wednesday that was apparently pretty spectacular. My skiing buddies said they wished they had a video of it. :yikes: Left shoulder took a good shot and is still pretty sore; doing overhead presses and rows with moderate weights to get it back to normal.

Cliff Miller 03-15-2013 06:24 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
alden...sounds like a rough 4 days eh? good thing you have to go back to work to recover...always a sign of a good holiday of the few times i ever felt like quiting a wod in over 3 years

100 purple bands hamstring curls
5 x 25 ghd sit ups
800m 45lb sled pull with 20 lb weight vest and 20 ankle weight each leg

Tim Randall 03-16-2013 04:17 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
For me the Open 13.2 is in the bag:D

After being axious as to my ability to do the work suffering with a head cold I decided to give it the best I could. Went to the box at 3:00 to stretch and warm up. I CAN'T THANK MY COACH ENOUGH FOR NOTICING THAT I WAS SLACKING ON GETTING MY ELBOWS HIGH AND RACKING THE WEIGHT EVERYTIME I BROUGHT THE BAR DOWN FROM OVERHEAD!

After scoring for a couple friends I set up the bar and gave it all!
Managed 8rds +1 shoulder to OH and felt good afterward!

Trust all the rest of you had as much fun with this Cardio speed test!:o


Cliff Miller 03-16-2013 06:37 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Thanks Cliff,

I was considering doing 13.2 over again today (then I woke up):yikes: I found my traps really tight and not 100% recovered---must be needing to up the (Omega 3's)? I thought I was dosing about right cause the neighbors "cat" was chasing me around the house:confused:

Hope everyone that is doing the open is enjoying it as much as I am, (especially seeing others at our Box achieving more than they ever imagined of themselves)


Bill Hoogsteden 03-17-2013 07:49 PM

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Chaplin Tim - awesome job on 13.2!! You and JB are cleaning clock in the 55-59 Men's Masters Division!!

Pat - You are right about the soft landings on the box jumps!! When I made the best jumps, the landings were soft.

[B]The Ides of March:
100 SUs
10 Push ups
10 Air Squats
Box Jump/Tuck Jump practice

1/3 Hamilton:
1000m row
50 Push Ups
1000m run
50 Pull Ups


[I]Brutal! Felt everything weak in my body hurt on this one! Would've tried the rest of the WOD, but I wanted to saveit for 13.2[/I]

[B]17 March:
400m run
100 SUs
10 TTB
Hollow rocks
box jumps

CrossFit Open 13.1
10 min AMRAP:
5 shoulder to overhead, 95#
10 Deadlifts, 95#
15 Box Jumps/ Step Ups, 20" Box

211 reps

[I]The weight lifting wasn't bad. Kept my hands on the bar for all presses and DLs. Tried to keep these going fast. 95# was an easy weight for me.

Went to set ups pretty quickly, so that was my slowest part of the WOD. Even with the step ups were draining! Jumping would've been faster but much more draining! At least I was able to break 200![/I]

Oh, Yeah, 56 Birthday Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) :D
