[B]11.30.2010-Tuesday-Day 2[/B]

Warmup: Row 500, pushups, squats, lunges, situps, et al shoulder mobility, trigger pt balls & stretch......

[B]Athlete's Choice
3 rounds for time of:
20 power cleans - 95# (55#)
20 pull-ups
[B]LEVEL 2[/B]
4 rounds for time of:
15 squat cleans - 95# (55#)

[B]14:04 Level 3[/B] Supposed to do deload front squat but just did this, same diff. Not a bad one. Rack wasn't bad, 4th & 5th rounds I had to think elbows up, happy with my depth for the most part. Its tougher but I kinda like the full lifts... all good but broken pullups, had to redo one or two. Still at 150# bw.
Kind of a lazy week, that was all I did today. I hate that its so cold I dont want to go out in the garage.

Claw - Thanks for sharing on that 100 year old rower!!! I've got a running date in 49 1/2 years!!;)


- push ups
- squats
- sit ups



135# dead lift & 45# over head squat


[I]Slow & light. My back & elbow weren't cooperating that well this morning. There were ALOT of "Straights" in the hotel gym & I was scaring them with the dead left "bangs". Also, I had to use the one bar for both lifts which slowed me down, so I don't feel that bad about my time![/I]

Day 30 of the CFWP Burpee (Yay! Burpees!) Challenge: 30 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!) in 3:27! Breathing hard!;)

Taken a few days off from the Gym (doing yard work) and helping get our new box ready for opening next week!!! YAY! We are now Affiliated and "On the Map"--CROSSFIT UNTAMED!

We installed the Rogue pullup system and laid out the location for the lifting stations. ( I welded up some additions to the Pull-up stations and will hang the ropes/rings tomorrow) Moving on Saturday to open for business Monday!
Saturday will be fun, rolling and moving 50-3/4 mats should be a good workout!

Been really working on setting goals for the up coming year and have decided to continue with the focus on "Strength/mobility" over the next couple months and than switch focus to "CF-endurance" My coach is going to help me cater my Workouts toward my goal of running my first 1/2 marathon in April.
(I ran my first 10k last year in April of this year with my Daughter and managed to do it in 56min) My goal this year is to run the 1/2 marathon distance with her and to run it in as close to 2 hours as possible (and beat my daughters time again!)--it is a race "I told my wife" who thought that was mean"

Cliff, I feel the pain with you (along with the majority of us, the "over 50" bunch, We can do what ever we set our mind to, however I as well realizing that I don't always recover as fast and we can injure ourselves much easier than the 20 somethings!--so be it!--still got a long life in front of me, and I know my determination is rubbing off on the rest of my family and friends as many of them are now taking fitness serious!!

Did get a Workout in this morning and it felt good!!

WU:leg swings, dislocates, ASx25, box jumps 25x10, BSx45#x10


10 rounds for time of:
15 ft Rope Climb, 1 ascent
95 pound Back squat, 29 reps
135 pound barbells Farmer carry, 10 meters

Begin the rope climbs seated on the floor.

Scaled: 5 reps and Farmers carry to 70lb dumbells
[B]Time: 16:47[/B] (felt good to be able to do the BS at rx weight;)

(those of you that can do this entirely RX are some great athletes!!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
i know the age thing is just that an age thing however i am just having a hard time wraping my head around getting older and starting to slow down.

the town i live in is generally quite a fit one. it is only 15,000 people. we have one lady who is 72 and training for her 5th or 6th iron man, one woman who travels the world in adventure races, there are at least 7 or 8 olympians living here, about 15 or so national team members from some sport or other and at least 3 world champion mountain bikers and around 20 other mountain bikers who are either racing at or did race at a pro elite level.

my mom and dad who are 65 & 71 both still go to the gym 5 days a week at 5:30 a.m. so i am surrounded by fit energetic people.

i had a long chat with a good friend last nite who got me into crossfit. he is 53 and is someone who always seems to provide me with words of wisdom. his take on it was to the effect of ....yup we are getting older but look around we are the 2 oldest guys in our box and we are sweating and bleeding just as much as the young guys. how many other guys our age would be able to do what you did last nite as your wod?...

i guess he is right i just need to accept that i am growing older but not up.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hi All,

I'm quickly creeping up on 50 and it was recommended that I sign in to this thread.

I'm 47 and have been crossfitting since July and adore it. It never fails to hand me my fanny on the way out the door every single day.

That being said, I am one of only two women at our box in our 40's and I'm by far the closest to 50. I've been looking for online support and it looks like it might have just been recommended to me.

I look forward to getting to know you all.
