Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
8/10 workout
Run bike path from Modoc to Goleta Beach Park
4.35 miles (which turns to be exactly 7 km), 32:39 (WFS) [url][/url]
Rest 10 mins, then
Run bike path from Goleta Beach Park to Modoc
4.35 miles, 36:54 (WFS) [url][/url]

Ran the first leg at 7:29 pace, as fast as I have run this far (although the course drops 100’). That equates to a 23:19 5K, just 18 seconds over my 5K PR. Coming back was pretty hard too. 8:30 mile pace.

8/11 Sunday WOD
200M run
10 KB swings (1.5)
5 pull ups.

6 rounds + run + 6 KB swings.
Basically this is just Helen broken into smaller intervals. My Helen pace is better than this, however. I think time was lost in the transitioning between the movements, as well as the fact that the Endurance training is really kicking my motor into overdrive but my strength is down, which was noticeable primarily on the pull ups.

Worked with Laura and Don, who got his first Muscle Up in the warm up!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
hi all. great work as usual over the last week or so. like i should expect anything less.

10 days off from work, the gym or doing anything productive and it was great. saw a buddy who i have known since we were 5. my wife who has not seen him in a couple of years says he looks at least 10 years older and is now even more apprecitative of the fact that i go to xfit 5 days a week.

spent a couple of days camped out by a rushing river and a long walk was a couple of hundred yards.

back at the gym yesterday with a renewed sense of wanting to go at it hard again. the time off really felt good for my body however.

3 rounds

500 m. row
10 20 k.g. kb swings
3 minute rest

2:07, 2:10, 2:09

slept like a baby last nite

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
8/15 Endurance WOD
30:00 max distance up Gibralter Road from intersection of Gibralter and El Cielito.
2.59 miles (11:35 average pace), 1,043’ elevation gain. Made it almost all the way to the No Shooting sign. WFS: [url][/url]

This is the third time I’ve done essentially the same run. First time 35 minutes (from Old Mission), 3.14 miles (11:08 pace). Second time 25 mins, 2.31 miles (10:51 pace). So this was slowest of the three, but the first one included a less-steep part starting at the Mission, and the second time blew me out. This seemed the most sustainable, maybe pushing things just a little.

I am hoping my goal of 12 minute miles for Pier to Peak is doable, especially since the first 2.5 miles from Pier to Old Mission is the least steep and I can do much better than 12:00/miles. When I ran No Shooting sign to top the other weekend the 5.4 miles took 1:09 (12:50 pace). We didn’t go all the way to the top, so let’s assume 1:15 to top. Assuming I can keep that pace (big assumption), I need to make it from Pier to No Shooting sign, 7.3 miles, in 1:23, which is 11:25/mile or so. Seems tough but doable!
