Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Hi Guys! I turned 43 yesterday. I know I'm not 50 but I'll be there before I know it. What is it about having kids (10 y/o twins) that makes time go so fast? I/ve been crossfitting for about 1 1/2 years and regularly troll the message board for workout ideas, motivation, and just to learn more. I regularly hit yours alls log and love reading your posts.

I have hit almost all the Level 1 Skills that Crossfit Seattle has on their skill list. I'm still working on the 1 mile run. I still can't figure out why anyone would want to run a mile. If you can't figure out who wins a race after one lap why bother?(ex-track and swimming sprinter).

Anyway, like I said felt like since I get so much from reading your alls posts I'd like to sign on. You guys rock!

Thanks!

Mark Kaelin

Just a quick clarification, I don't train at Seattle Crossfit but I do use a lot of their WOD's and info.

I'm in Louisville, KY (home of the Kentucky Derby). I split my workouts between my back deck and the gym at the university I teach at.

Looks like your box is programming OPT-style. I started the OPT Big Dawg WODs a couple of weeks ago. Interesting programming from a very knowledgeable guy. Great time for your 50 PJ's.

10/16/2009
1.25 bwt DL x 15
20 x 20" box jumps
3 rds, 90 sec rest after each.
Times: 1:13; 1:21; 1:20

15 kb swings at 2 Pood (sub 1.5 pood)
25 dbl unders
3 rds, 90 sec rest after each
Times: 1:15; 1:23; 1:33

15 Back Extensions
15 GHD situps
3 rds, 90 sec rest after each.
Times: 0:54; 0:47; 0:45

10/17/2009
early
50 x 165# split jerks (since this equals my 1 rep max, sub 115)
Every time you drop or rack the bar, 10x toes to bar
Time: 21:20, 7 sets of toes to bar

WOD #2 is "Tyler", which I'm hoping to tackle shortly.


[B]Deb,[/B]

I agree with Terry, great time on your "Fran" as rx'd.

thanks but at our gym, the rx for ladies - is only 65# plus kipping pullups!!! Last time 6/29/09 I used the band for pullups. Kind of a humiliating day.

Humiliating ? I don't think so, Deb. Any day you can work out is a good day.
Think of all the people our age who have been taught that a walk to the mailbox or a couple of hours of gardening is good exercise!

And remember, any time beats DNF (Did not finish) beats DNS (Did not start)!

So, putting the migraine aside, first time Rx'ed = Good job!
