O/w .. birthday stuff .. a few years back I was visiting Anna Ruby Falls in North GA when I saw a guy running up and down the metal stairs that lead up to the falls. When at the top I asked him what he was doing. He said it was his 56th birthday, so he was running "up and down 56 times". He had been doing this every year - adding a lap - since he was 50.

Ever since then, Ive been doing birthday challenges.[/QUOTE]

Me too. Every B day, I take the day off and do a swim, bike and run. I try to add more time each year. The workout is followed by a massage and then I go out for clams and beer (my favorite lunch).. Gotta be good to your self at least one day a year.

Was determined to take the day off from working out as feeling a little baked. Got home and got suckered into a 2 hour game of basket ball with my kids, swimming and smores. No complaints.

Thank you John. Im keen on nutrition. Not only is it integral to Yoga (via [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayurveda"]Ayurveda[/URL]), but its a topic I enjoy. Plus one I am learning more about through Paleo.

Ahh .. massage! I am a [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_massage"]Thai Yoga Massage Therapist[/URL]. If I had someone who would massage me after CF .. Id be sooo there!

[B][U]June 21[/U][/B]
Ran 2.7 mile hilly route (289 feet of climbing, 22:07, Avg HR 128, Max HR 139), then
[B]CrossFit Main Page WOD from 6/20[/B]
Three rounds for time of:
50 Double-unders
25 Wallball "2-fer-1s", 20 pound ball
[B]11:29[/B]
DH Pull-Ups: 5, 5, 13 (tied PR)
Stretched

I was going to cycle tonight, but when I pulled out my bike I noticed that it had a flat so I ran instead (changed the flat after the workout). My run was 13 seconds off my PR effort and I was really booking it when I set the PR. Today, I was hardly out of breath and my HR averaged below 130. Real pleased with that.

The DU/2-fer-1 Wall Ball WOD was an adventure. My DUs were good, but the 2-fer-1s were "interesting" to say the least. Nothing like coming up on the second squat with a sweaty 20# medicine ball bearing down on your head. Wish I had room in the garage to toss the ball higher, but I had to deal with what I have which meant being fast on that second squat! Crazy but fun!

40kg
42kg (3) HAD the first one, & lost chasing it forward out of the hole, b/c HIPS WERENT UNDER ME; flustered & miss. Got the last one fine. I had no leg drive tonite :(

45kg (3)
50kg (2) slight pressout
53kg slight pressout

[B]Backsquat[/B] Blairstown

[B]
Clean & Jerk[/B]
35kg/1+2 (5)
[B]
Backsquat[/B]
55kg/4 (4)
37kg/5 (2)

I was supposed to do all the 55kg sets then C&J but I use my deck b/c no platform, rain was threatening so I did C&J quick. They were easy. Legs were dead today for some reason, I rested yesterday I dunno; snatches didnt start out so great bc of that, kinda dead legs. Snatch is a constantly evolving thing anyway!! Backsquat was awful, not really heavy, not pain, not shaking, just dead legs, i didnt think I was in the complete bottom for some!!! cant squat for s--t, my middle name. I wish I'd put 43 on the bar for the last snatch; told him I wanna do 50 at the meet in September. Coach looked at my home workouts and said running is anti weightlifting, drop it. Also no pullups between squat sets b/c Im a weakling, need to REST between sets. Leg extensions useless till I graduate to bodybuilding. LOL

And it seems to me now the others arent PULLING the bar into their legs/hips, its that when they bend their knees back under the bar to be more upright & explode the bar brushes their legs. I tried to do it on purpose and damn, that bar swung a foot out in front of me (and got hollered at). Maybe it just happens with practice. I shared a platform with Danica, she told me dont think about the lift once you pass your knees; just throw it and sit, cant be thinking about not missing.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Core workout and then did 21 non-stop kipping pull ups just because. A PR for kips ( previously 17). Then ran a fast 4 miles and re-injured my calf which I had thought was better. Didnt feel it during the run. Now, I'm limping.

Do I do tomorrows heavy DL wod? I'm pretty sure that's what tightened my calf to begin with. Who will win, rationale self or the other 99% of my brain that says do it? I'll find out in the am.

Love some of the wods you guys are posting on this site. I can't do Deb's though. I would need to stop every minute to read the list. Longest list of exercises ever.
