Fruit and eggs work. Paleo Athletes recommends protein and fruit. Having lived in Europe, I enjoy Kippers and Fruit for breakfast. Lol .. I don’t know many Americans who can eat fish at 4am though! [/QUOTE]

I lived in Norway and Denmark for several years, I'm right there with you on fish for breakfast! For those of you grossed out by this, remember smoked salmon/lox is fish, too. :yikes:

Love Lox on bagels! But that's not Paleo! :D

Jim C - Way to go on the TRI!!

[quote=Valarie Wright;956703]...Im all about both! Love the Headstand. Ever do Headstand to a [URL="http://www.trueyogainc.com/uploaded_images/Crow-Pose-701915.JPG"]Crow Lift[/URL], then back to Headstand. Good abs and balance...[/quote]

Valarie - So true on that (abs & balance)! I picked up headstands watching Carl Paoli's ( [URL]http://gymnasticswod.com/[/URL] ) progressions stuff on the CrossFit Journal & doing the progressions since November. Suddenly, in January, I was able to do 'em for the 1st time in my life! Been trying them with tucks, split legs, & pikes (talk about ab work!!). Haven't seen the Crow Lift, but I'm gonna trying. It's been like learning to walk. Once you do it, the easier they get! Handstands next....!!

[I]Not a great time, but only 5 minutes slower than a bunch of younger folks in the class. Got dinged for "dropping" weights by the Gym staff. I tried to lower the weights like they told me but no matter how I did it, I still was doing it "Deliberately" wrong.:shrug: Next time, I'm taking the bars outside!! :D[/I]

[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;956894][B]Perry[/B] I didn't see your post - Morrison. Yeah that looks pukie for sure!! Everything you do lately seems to be in the hundreds; and five mile run the day before!! Cant wait to see your next wod. :stir:[/QUOTE]

Deb: I've always liked long endurance type training, so the high reps suit me, but now that I'm adding a lot more weight than I'm used to, it's fairly brutal.

Today:

WU:Alternating dead lifts (10x 135, 185); squats (20x 135, 10x185), presses( 10x 95,95)

WOD: alternating dead lifts (4 sets):(10x 205), squats (10x205), presses (10x 105)

Core routine.

Seeing definite improvement in all 3 lifts.

Very difficult to keep increasing the weights I'm using and continue doing long distance biking and moderate distance running, but I love both. Will not stop.

I know that long distance training is antithetical to the cross fit philosophy, but it helped speed me up Mt. Rainier last summer with ease and up Mt. Washington this past winter in deep, deep snow, and 100 mph winds. I'm starting training for Mt. McKinley for next June (if my wife doesn't give me too hard a time). Could not do this type of activity without putting the mileage in. I still think there is a place and function for distance training. There really is no substitute.

Week 7, Day 25
 
[QUOTE=Deb Borbone;956772][B]Valarie,[/B] I never did Xfit every day, 3 on/1 off. Its kind of weird b/c I started at my gym when they started, and probably could have gone every day then. But the workouts got harder and harder and harder over the 2yrs I was there. I did get to a point where I did other stuff before and/or afterward - mainly strength stuff. So couldn't do every day w/o paying - sooner or later I'd hit a wall, lousy times, aches & pains, no strength gains. I need my rest days!! Hard for me to make gains without them.[/quote]

Ok .. this gives me something to think about. Thank you Deb!

Fish is the breakfast of champions! :kicking0: Or at least, I keep telling myself that!

Headstand Pike is my fav. Actually, part of a combination: Pike to [URL="http://www.sarawhitney.net/yoga/images/intermediate/vrischikasana.jpg"]Scorpion[/URL]. For the Scorpion, you can either keep the head on the floor, and arch the back; or, lift the head up ("Scorpion Lift"), and go into it. When Im just working the abs, Ill keep my head on the floor and move from one position to the next.

Good luck with the Crow Lift. Remember: Roll the Chest and Chin Upwards. This extends the spine, helping you find the middle ground/balance.
