Such is CrossFit. You have a few good days & then get a WOD that totally humbles you!! Got to love it!!:D

Thanks. Trying to figure this message board out. It looks like a few people are doing the cross fit site WOD and others are doing their own thing. Any ground rules?

Did tuesdays WOD, modified, as had no rings: 5 rounds: 20 pull ups and 20 dips. 11:10. No idea if that's fast, slow, or in-between since it's modified. Definitely did not get chest to bar on many of the pull ups.

Perry, most of us on this board have certain things we focus on, but get around to doing a lot of the CrossFit WODs as well. I did crossfit all winter, but am now training for triathlons and a marathon and I don't believe that Crossfit adequately prepares for those events. I don't want to lose strength, so am continuing with some strength, core and pull-up work. I'll do some of the CrossFit WODs this summer, as long as they don't conflict with my other training. For example, I did the swim/push-up WOD earlier this week on my swim workout day. I tried CrossFit Endurance and didn't really like it. I'll get back into regular CrossFit WODs in October with some additional leg work for the ski season.

[B][U]May 26[/U][/B]
Cycled 25.5 miles (1:37.00)
Slow time tonight, but it was a hilly route with 3 climbs of several hundred feet and I finished in the dark and had to go slow to avoid a pothole disaster.

No, Perry, no real ground rules. Although I think we are all CF True Believers. Some of us are members of "boxes" (CF affiliates, some are not, but used to be—like myself). Other thing is, some affiliates follow the main page, but most don't—they program their own WODs.

One of the things I really dig about this thread, aside from it being an amazing community of people who simply defy age— are the different CF-rooted protocols (exercise and diet) being pursued, the sharing of results and the opportunity to learn from one another.

Because of money and life-circumstance, I have not worked out at an affiliate for over a year—training myself. I have been doing a combination of a periodized/progressive strength protocol and low and high intensity MetCon work. I haven't done any "CF" WODs in that time.

At some point, however, likely end of this year or beginning of next, I will transition back into a CF WOD/strength routine.

Welcome

Hi [B]Perry!![/B] & belated welcome.
Looking at everybodys work.... darn I wish I was stronger!! Nice work :) [B]Michelle[/B] & [B]JB[/B] welcome back!

Bill, had my share of barbell hickeys. Knurls seem to run the gamut of "might as well use Rebar" to "there's a knurl??" (i dont notice it on the eleiko). Im inclined to tape the barbell.

[B]5_27_11 Friday[/B]

Warmup: Run 400 stretch etc. Need some metcon but short enough so it doesn't interfere w/WL, knees-squats, or hockey playoffs. (I stink at making up wods!!)

[B]Mini WOD - 3 Rounds[/B]
1 DH Pullup
5 Ring Pushups feet on box
10 Pushpress 75#
Run 200m
[B]10:00-11[/B]
geez not only did it take 11 minutes, i had to BREAK the third set of PP at 8. My rings were set a little too high. 5 was hard enough. I need more shoulder mobility stuff....

Then a little abs. 161.5# today.

[B]Happy Holiday Everyone!! [/B]
