Fun Day!!

Finally had some good weather here and went out to the dam. Saw some high school sprinters doing uphill sprints on the embankment the other day and figured, "what the heck?"

Anyway, I did four yesterday until I was seriously ready to pass out, and some other stuff. See photo. I ran along the right side of the stairs, from the rock pile up to the top, about 75 yards each time. Pretty serious grade.

1/4 mile run with 15 lb. weight vest
Stretch
4x75 yard uphill sprints
120 stairs up w/15 lb. weight vest
1/2 mile hike w/ weight vest
120 stairs down, up, then down with weight vest
1/4 mile run with weight vest[/QUOTE]

Great lookin' workout John! Nice work!

Ran 3 miles at lunch (warmed-up, 8 min mile for 1.5 miles, then warmed down, HR in mid-upper 130s during 8 min/miles), then
Bench Press: 10x135#, 5x205#, 5x230#, 3x255# (slight assist on rep 3).

Not very happy with the bench press today. I'm starting to lose some weight and I think that and the distance training is somewhat at odds with strength gains. However, I hope to continue to see strength improvements, but perhaps not as quickly as if I were emphasizing that in my training.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Thanks John. I'm ok with the trade-off. I will sacrifice strength for endurance and weight loss at this point. Almost everything I like to do will benefit from that. All the body weight exercises are getting easier.

[B][U]May 12[/U][/B]
Cycled 15 miles (46.51, PR by 37 secs, HR avg 131, max 150), then
4x through the following circuit:
- 10 chest-to-ring pull-ups
- 10 ring dips
- 25 sit-ups
- 15 knees to elbows
Stretched

Wasn't trying to go fast, but I seemed to fly around the loop.
