[QUOTE=Pat Quigley;631564]I've lived in Ahwatukee for 18+ years. I have had my psychology practice here for 10+ years. I worked out at the Gold's for some 4 years and at Lifetime Fitness for the last 2-3 years. When I started crossfit 10 months ago, I paid one of the trainers at Lifetime to teach me the OLY moves. He moved on. I joined one of the affiliates in Chandler for a few months. Now I'm back at Lifetime. There are at least 4 other guys doing the main web site crossfit workouts. I have not been able to coordinate schedules with one or more of them. When I moved here in '90, I was into my second year of triathlons. Ahwatukee was a community of new roads, few houses, some hills, and little traffic. Ahwatukee is now home to some 85000 residents with lots of traffic. I still love being around South Mountain for hiking.[/QUOTE]

That's a coincidence. I moved there in 90 too, then left to MA in 2000...I lived right off the Ray Chandler Loop...worked at Intel for about 16 years. I used to go to World Gym in Tempe on Ray and Elliot the first few years there, then joined Mountainside on Chandler Blvd (I think that's what it was called). I spent a lot time on the trails in South Mountain Mt Biking, I raced for several years.
The growth was unbelievable there.

Deadlift 225 x 12

Did the Strong Person (although no women showed up---except my wife and one of my daughters to watch) at my gym. The head trainer improvised four events. The winner for each event was congradulated at the end. No age groups, no weight groups. Just five guys going against each other. One guy was under 190 lbs and he decided to do the same weights as the rest. Three of the five were trainers and under 30 years. The other guy was in his late 30's and happened to be a long time crossfitter (3 years) and currently doing CFFB.

The five events were:

1) Sled Pull: 4X45 lb plates on a towel. Number of 40 foot pulls in 90 seconds. (I got 4 rounds--grip was tougher that I thought it would be)

2) Deadlift: Number of consecutive lifts to failure of 325 lbs within 90 seconds. No rest at the bottom of the pull. (14 completed) The other crossfitter got 20 and was the leader.

3)Toss a 9 lb ball. (37 +feet---winner threw for 42)

4) Three rounds of running with a dumbbell for 50 ft and running back to get next weight. The DB's were: 105, 95, and 85. (52 seconds, winner finished in 39).

I really enjoyed the day. Plus the head trainer listened to the other crosstrainer and myself about how to set up a separate area in the gym for crossfitters. I may be be a little closer to that wish list I posted here the other day.:stir:

[quote=Diane Mahoney;631272]Hmmmm, is there an over 40 thread?[/quote]

Diane,

There is the "Keithinators Log for the 40 + CFers", also on the CrossFit Forum. Keith is an awesome fire-breathing CFer. I think I speak for everyone here on this thread that you are certainly welcome here also!

Active rest day....Road 50 miles on my road bike today with my sister up in Sacramento, American River Parkway. It's been so long I had to wipe the dust off it. The first 25 miles up to Nimbus damn was fine, then we had to ride back home. The last 9 miles I was feeling it. After that we went for a beer and Thai food, then a 1 hr full body massage, stopped on the way home for a hot fudge sunday at Ghirardelli's. It was great day and a nice visit.

Pat-
Great job on the Strong Man competition. Those 14 consecutive 325lb. deadlifts impressed me the most.

I took Saturday as a rest day.

Sunday, I did modified "Lynne"
I did 5 rounds max reps bench press with 105lbs. and max reps pull-ups.
I did 15/5, 15/5, 11/4, 10/6, 10/4

I have been having a lot of shoulder discomfort in my left shoulder. When I was warming up for the bench press with just 45-85 lbs. it felt like I had a broken bone in my shoulder. So I kept the weight light.
