Happy easter gang. Now go out there and practice those fertility rites! Yet one more thing to thank the Irish for!:notworth:

So Friday, I did Tabata Something Else. Yesterday in class we did the burpee broad jumps. After Friday, I experienced some chest pain---felt muscular. After class and some lunch, the pain increased. So I went to my local urgent care center to have things checked out. EKG revealed a slight bradycardia. My pulse rate is usually lower than 60. So once again, I appear to have damaged a chest muscle. This happened before in my early 50's when I decided to learn butterfly for an upcoming swim meet. The doc ordered lidocaine patches.

So she ordered a week off from upper body exercise. What is that? Maybe a week to cycle or work on back squat? Not exercise?

Telling this doc that the damage could have come from push ups sounded crazy even to me. My wife opined that I should have told the doc the conditions that the push ups were performed.;)

Probably would have given the Doc a heart attack. Hope it all turns out OK.

4/3 Easter-themed WOD

3 Rounds of:
Plank hold while teammate (aka "Disciple") ran 400m. (The runner would "find" an Easter egg in the Easter basket (aka Pukie bucket) and we would have to do whatever the paper inside the egg said.)
Then 1 min rest.
Egg workout for 3 minutes.
1 min rest.
Plank hold. (If anyone went down on either plank hold, we had to do a burpee per time someone fell.)

Plank holds were about 1:30 to 1:45. Was able to hold them pretty well. Thanks to fast Disciples Kate, Zach, and Fielding; we only had to do one burpee (which was explained as dropping only because the anonymous crossfitter -- whom we'll call "Eric" -- thought Malzone said Zach was back).

Egg workouts were:
Med ball v-twists. (Unknown number @ 20#. Lots of down time during 3 minutes.)
Sit-ups. (Did 90 at consistent pace, no breaks.)
Lunges. (101, minor breaks.)

Team workouts are a fun variant on the individual WOD. Warmed up with tire flip relays and POSE running drills. Starting to get the hang of POSE running, but think I need to focus on landing more on balls of my feet, instead of what I'm currently doing, which is landing on whole foot at once.

4/5 WOD

Overhead Squats
3-3-3-3-3
75-95-95-105-115 (2 only)

Then 3 Rounds For Time of:
20 med ball cleans (20#/14#)
20 kb swings (1.5pd/1pd)

6:20 as Rx'd.

Got sooo close to getting 3rd rep up at 115#. These are definitely challenging, and I was pleased to get to full depth on all reps (except one, which rep I repeated to get three legit ones in). Fail was by falling forward. If I did not have to fail forward, I could have gone up to 120# or maybe even 125#, because everything else seemed fine.

Three tweaks: Using hook grip made them harder, so I used non-hook grip. Because I tend to collapse my right knee inward, I tried to shift my weight slightly to the right, which helped me keep form. Third tweak was to make sure I engaged shoulders up and out. Held bar with middle finger over outer ring on bar, which seemed to be a good width. All in all, these have never seemed more comfortable, and I think some more weight is in the very near future.

3 RFT was just fun, I always love swinging the kettlebell!

I just joined this discussion board. I am glad to see that there are other over 50 folks here.

I signed up for the masters weekend in Washington. Anybody else going?

Michael,

Welcome. Glad to have more on the thread. There are a couple of us are venturing into the games. I'm going to Masters in Colorado at the end of the month. Terry just finished NorCal Sectionals but did it the hard way, with all the young guns.

How long have you been crossfitting? You work out at an affiliate?

Jeff
