Re: The Barn
 
Hey Norm,

Sounds like you're getting a good mix of crossfitting and climbing workouts in these days. Have you noticed any difference in your climbing based on your crossfit fitness?

jt

Norm Swann 06-08-2011 10:47 AM

Re: The Barn
 
JT: Yes, big difference. A little in ability, but mostly I'm able to train hard and not have the elbow and wrist pain that shut me down several years ago before Crossfit.I hope by this time next year I will notice a big improvement in ability.
You seem to stay in great shape. Great job, especially with all the traveling you do. I know my son has struggled with fitness partly because of traveling. He is doing better, and seems to like the Crossfit program.
Neat picture of you surfing-never tried it-looks like alot of fun!

Re: The Barn
 
How far away is the post you run to.

Did you find the climbing scenes believable in the book?

Norm Swann 06-19-2011 06:21 AM

Re: The Barn
 
Back from Colorado; another great trip with great friends!:) Climbed 6 days in a row, a variety of routes from 5.7 to 5.12a. Very little left elbow pain, only had to wear the elbow braces on a few routes.

JT:not sure about the post distance, one of these days I'll have to measure it. Somewhere between 1.5-2 miles.
I really enjoyed the book. The climbing scenes did seem real. I was lucky enough to watch Katie Brown warm-up for a comp. many years ago. Her climbing was effortless, reminding me of your descriptions of Mina's climbing. Kane's climbing was more human (more like the rest of us), making Mina's accomplishments even more amazing to the reader.

There were several things in the Cliffhanger movie that I said "come on, that doesn't really happen". I didn't read anything in your book that made me think that. I thought the climbing scenes seemed very real; nice work!

Hi Norm, there is a great website called "Map My Run" that works like google earth, but lets you map your run courses and get the distance and elevation. It takes a little bit to figure out how it works, but once you do, it's a nice tool for runners and bikers. Go to:

Re: The Barn
 
That looks like a brutal workout. I looked at that and got scared. Good job gutting that one out. :notworth:

We should do trip in the next couple of weeks.

JT Kalnay 07-04-2011 01:17 PM

Re: The Barn
 
You should have seen him gutting it out yesterday!

Did you see the Summersville Lake deep water traversing photos.

I want to do that, maybe next week...

Wounded Warriors came out today:

Norm Swann 07-04-2011 06:03 PM

Re: The Barn
 
Thanks! It was brutal.

Biked 18 miles with Sandy tonight; she showed mercy in the beginning but pride was the only thing that kept me close in the end.

Norm Swann 07-04-2011 06:44 PM

Re: The Barn
 
Thanks Tim! It was brutal. I would like to get out for a trip soon if the weather cooperates.
Looks like you and Jeff had a fantastic trip this weekend. Great job on the sends!

Jt: I'll check out some more of your books this winter when I have more time. I don't read very often-something else I need to work on.
I didn't see the Summersville photos. Where are they?
Excellent job on the deadlifts and other lifts. Awesome amount of weight!

Re: The Barn
 
New diet? More details please.

Norm Swann 07-05-2011 06:24 PM

Re: The Barn
 
Tim; here are the details: Crossfit Youngstown is having a "Fittest of your Life" challenge. it started on 7/1 and runs until the end of Aug. Part of it is diet;Zone- Paleo. Simply defined as it pertains to the challenge: Zone is the portions, paleo is what you eat (1/2 the carbs for the day have to come from veggies-can't eat all fruit).
They are also looking at exercise, weight, resting heart rate, sleep, water intake, and post workout snack. We have to keep a daily journal to keep track of all that. It was $50.00 to participate. If I get enough points by doing things right, I get my $50 back. So far so good.

Tim Babcock 07-06-2011 09:03 AM

Re: The Barn
 
Thanks for the details, Norm. I think you mentioned you might do this during our Colorado trip. After this challenge you will be able to make an informed decision whether or not this type of eating is for you. Good job and keep up the good work.

Norm Swann 07-07-2011 09:43 AM

Re: The Barn
