Jeff,

Sorry about your Mom. Hope things are working out OK and keeping you and yours in my prayers. Great workouts for having so much on your plate!

Mike,

Welcome! Nice work on the rows!

John J.,

Don't your feet hurt a lot wearing the FFs on rock and other uneven surfaces? I have some other CrossFitter friends who love and swear by them and are avid hikers/mountain climbers, but I don't know if they wear theirs for other than runs.....

Terry,

[B][I]Uh last time I recall? it was ...35 years ago on a football field with pads on......[/I][/B]Funny....though I never played football, I remember burpees from HS also - - they never bothered me then. Go figure.....

Sorry about the shin......that's gotta hurt like H***. BTW, you are really rockin' on the DLs. Awesome!

Good question.

I would not wear them on loose stone, especially anything with jagged edges. Other than that, I wear them for running on grass, running stairs, power movements like cleans and snatches. Have not tried them yet on box jumps, but I know people who do and say it's OK.

My calves and achilles are taking some time to get used to pose, but it is coming slowly. Not sure how good my form is. Every once in a while, I get in a groove with it, where it feels pretty natural.

I also think the fact that I am doing most of my pose on grass, which is somewhat uneven, is contributing to the problem.

Weather permitting, I'm gonna run the stairs at the dam today after work in them, probably about 10 flights of 115 stairs each up and down.

Weighed in this AM before work: 198.

I can check another of my 2010 goals off the list (getting under 200 lbs., started the year around 208). Have not been under 200 in 8 or 9 years. Can even see a bit of a six pack! :pepper:

I think some of my recent weight loss is due to a death in the family, but I really noticed earlier this week while taking a few days off work and therefore really able to watch my diet, that I got ketogenic and the pounds have been falling off.

Strength remains good. Not making big gains so far this round of Wendler, but either maintaining in some lifts or going up in another.

Thanks, Deb!

Squat therapy is where you face a wall, toes as close to the wall as possible (for me, about three - four inches away), and then do air sqauts without letting your knees touch the wall. Arms will generally be above you, palms gliding on the wall surface. These force you to develop/maintain good form.

[QUOTE=William Hoogsteden;773231]John-

I workout at Crossfit@Wright-Patterson AFB. They started the Crossfit gym back in January! It's been awesome. Humbling, but awesome![/QUOTE]

Bill,

I was stationed at Wright-Patt from '83-86. Was with the engine SPO working on the KC-135 re-engining and the Advanced Cruise Missile Engine. You AF?



Also, big welcome to all the new Over 50 Crossfitters!

BTW, we have a Paleo challenge going on at our affiliate. I've done pretty good cutting out the dairy, starchy carbs, legumes, etc but it hard to avoid drinking when running around NY with clients. Still, I"ve lost about 6-7 pounds without really trying. I have an impedance scale and have seen a corresponding drop in my BF%.

Jeff,

We should compare notes.

I got relatively serious about Paleo after the New Year. I've basically eliminated starches and grains (did have some "low-carb crust" pizza last night with fresh spinach, bacon, sausage, olive oil and garlic), been pretty good on sugars, OK on dairy (I still eat some cheese and plain, high fat yogurt and ice cream a few times a week), no booze, almost no legumes).

Almost all of my animal protein is coming from free range chicken and eggs, wild game and fish, and grass fed/pastured pork, beef and bison. Also pastured butter.

I'm finding when I keep my total carb intake to around 100-150 grams or less for a couple of days, I get ketogenic pretty fast. And the weight is sort of falling off of me now.

[QUOTE=John Jaeckel;772960]04.20.10: 2 mile hike wearing Five Fingers through the hills with 5 pound hand weights

John J. - I know these FF's are popular right now, but I have had 2 Crossfit friends go donw with lower extremity injuries after using them for a couple of weeks. One was a minor knee injury, the other was a ruptured Achilles
Tendon that occured right next to me when we were sprinting. The tendon injury of course can happen at any time, but I feel the greater dorsiflexion allowed by the FF's may have contributed to the rupture. Just be careful with them.

Still working on DU's.......... :ranting2:

Thx, I hear you. I really overdid it at first, now I'm breaking in real slowly. It's real hard on my calves and achilles. So, advice well taken.
