I wish I knew, Jay! I guess I usually do an 8 or 9 minute mile if I'm just running at a normal pace and not trying to kill it. Fastest time at a 5k was 26:20, but that was at sea level.

It's good to beat the youngsters, right? :kicking0:

Skip...you're really making me homesick. Whidby Island. Haven't been there in a good while.

Steve...Can you give me a few pointers on "rolling out" one's sore muscles? Big time DOM in my quads today. Can hardly walk down stairs (pretty funny actually).

Welcome here Rick.

Happy Birthday Charley. Did you ever watch the "Iron Chef" I wonder if there was a broccoli episode. If this is the case then the chef had to do a broccoli desert. I can't imagine it but you crew may have some ideas!

John---all burpees are bad!


Diane great running.

Today I did "Linda"---or was it the other way around. This ten sets with a comparable number of reps for the set number in sequence. The exercises in rotation were DL @1.5 body weight, BP @ bw, and Clean at .75 BW. I scaled this one. I did 285 for DL, 185 for BP, and 135 for CL. At 32:20 I ran out of time and had to stop to get back to my office. I completed everything but the last three sets.

So this totaled 36,290 lbs. This work out gassed me out a few times. There was a guy working a Smith machine next to me and he saw me running from station to station. So he comes over to tell me that he is doing the same workout and how much he is enjoying Crossfit. Oh well, I guess we all started someplace. I guess his is doing the WOD's w/o a timer!

Happy Birthday Charlie!
Welcome Rick and Happy Belated Birthday

Remember...Age is just a state of mind, not a state of body.

We donít stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.
