Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I have injured my lower back. It has been giving me problems for the past week at least, but now I have done something to make it HURT. So, I will rest. Because of some significant scoliosis, it is exactly the kind of injury that I thought I would get from doing Crossfit when I started two years ago. However I have had a wonderful experience of having almost no problems with my back for two years of doing Crossfit. I am convinced that all the great core work has benefitted me greatly. So, I am going to assume that I have just strained something, and will recover with rest, and be back at the workouts in a week. I am sure that I will try to run again even sooner. But for now even walking is a pain.

Hope it gets better quick Mark. I injured my back a few months ago deadlifting. Could hardly walk for 2 days, but after a week of rest I was amazed how fast I recovered. Went right back to working out and felt fine. I really think the speedy recovery has to do with just being in shape and lots of fish oil :)

Doing any physical therapy Mark? I've been in and out for 2+ months. I give them limits I'm working on or exercises that are hindered by joint movement and they work on it with me.

After regular warm up, I did some skill work on back squat: 5 X 5 X 225 box squats.

Did the 091121 work out:

21 HSPU (feet on wall, body at angle), 400 m. run (5.1 speed on treadmill), 21 weighted pull ups (35 lb dumbbell), 15 HSPU, 400 run, 15 weighted pull ups, 9 HSPU, 400 m run, and 9 weighted pull ups.

16:44.

I do these HSPU facing the opposite way that the rest of you are probably facing a wall for support. I have trouble getting on my hands being blinded to the wall I am supposed to use for support behind me.

Just signed up for a Level 1 certification for March in San Diego.

Mark, take care of yourself!
Gee everyone seems to be having a touch of bad luck. I shouldn't be complaining about my nagging "tennis elbow" (keeping it in check with low reps and good warmups).

Thanks for the shout-out Deb. I found something that is working for me. FWIW - The best way to get better at PLUs is to just keep at it. I used bands a lot until I could kip even though I was able to do strict PLUs.

That's a helluva WOD.

I have done two new PR's this week: 140 in the press and 200 in the front squat. Took a few days off last weekend and noticed a) my body wasn't really sore for the first time in weeks and b) my strength went up. I'm sure this is typical. Dunno about all of you, but at my age, I think a little extra rest (versus CF protocol) now and then is a good thing!
