Way to go Diane! :highfive: :D :highfive:

I did Cindy today -- "Puppy" - 12 minutes, 9 rounds...

Man these WODs are deceptive! I left feeling pretty perky and was sort of beating myself up for not going after it more than I did. Well, now it's four hours later and every time I take a walk my legs threaten to give out - I guess I did do some work...

Dang you guys! :pepper:

I ran 5k this morning in 27:53. That is 1-1/2-2 minutes faster than the times I recorded before I started CrossFit four months ago. :D And I have not been running with any regularity! My fastest time was 26:20, but that was at sea level. :cool: Going to Florida next week...maybe I can do 26:20 again.

You all ever get grief from Over 50 Non-Crossfitters about crossfitting? Sorry, I'm not going to spend the next whatever years I got riding around in a golf cart.

Well, [B]Charlie[/B], we gave up on the Air Force and flew her out commercial to catch a rotator out of BWI. Ironic that it was on Veterans Day. 12 month countdown starts now.:rolleyes:

[B]Jeff[/B], Never. Of course I don't hang out with that set. Most of my homies are 4-7 years old.

Oh I love golf carts! I want one! I'm not 50 yet, but some people think my workouts are too intense. But they only last 20 minutes, usually. :shrug: And they're scaled!

Respirator on full workout

8 rounds

400 meters stairmaster level 11
50 jumping jacks
100 single unders
30 squats

31:20

Seems slow, but best I can do today.

[B]Jeff:[/B] Quick story, When I was 35 I heard about this guy, Norman Marks who owned a gym in Oakland and was a long time training partner of Jack LaLanne.

I was in good shape (for a bodybuilder) and asked to do a workout with him. He was 56 I think. Long story short, he absolutely destroyed me. I essentially snuck out the back door without finishing the workout. That was my introduction to metcon style training.

We later became friends and he told me that Jack would do the same thing to him everytime they trained. Bottom line, age can make things more challenging, but isn't that the best part? I refuse to be put into a box. I'm old, but I'm not dead yet. :cool:
