Hey Mark,

Great job on today's WOD! It was definitely harder than it looked on "paper" or the PC screen....

[I][B]All the OVER 50's are putting on quite a display of Crossfit Determination on this board, with Terry proving to be a real monster Crossfitter.[/B][/I]

What a great thing to say - - thanks! And yup....Terry is the "rabbit" to catch!!

[quote=Diane Dennis;492046][B]This morning:[/B]

Ran to the CLBBG - worked with trainer

This was a rough day in the gym - needed a lot of legs in this workout and didn't seem to have them. I'm guessing that 9 hrs after rowing wasn't enough recovery. I will never quit during a workout, but the thought actually crossed my mind this morning. Can anybody suggest something that I can eat between the time I get home from rowing (9pm) and hitting the CLBBG the next morning (6am) that might give me some gas in my tank? I normally eat 1/2 of a zone bar 1/2 hour before the gym and the other half after the workout. It's never been a problem until this morning.

WOD:

2 min jumping jacks
10 body rows
25 squat jumps
10 body rows
15 burpees
1 min static back squat - 55#
15 burpees
10 body rows
20 ea leg alternating lunge jumps
10 body rows
2 min jumping jacks

EEEK! Going home I ran about 15 steps and then had to walk the rest of the way.[/quote]

Hey Diane,

Way to push through anyway, even though your legs weren't cooperating! That was a LOT of work!

Rest up!!

Mark and Stephen - Great job on the WOD! From the main page posts, it sounds like this one is really tough. I might try it scaled on Friday but I've become a wimp without a CF coach. Kudos to you both for having the skill and determination to do it on your own.

Steve, Mark, Thanks for the compliments. Not sure I am monster... I think I need a few more months...:D Mark's WODS and times impress me and I still think he has the edge. But its all in fun, for me its all about self improvement...my wife says yeah right...your not competitive... seems like I am always trying to beat some youngster.

I think we all turn a bit more competitive - - I'm going crazy hoping I can edge some time off my previous WODs, etc. But it's just plain fun anyway. Most of the time, I just have a blast, once I recover from the suck factor.

Hope your hands are feeling better.

Today did CFWUx3 w/20 burpees

Did OHS 3-3-3-3-3
I did 45-50-55-60-65-70
The workout was going great and felt like I was probably going to keep going up in weight without any problems, when dropping into my 3rd squat with 70lbs. overhead my left groin had a pop and some pain. I finished that lift and stopped. Feels like I have a mild muscle pull. Guess I will go easy on the legs lifting anything for a few days. I do not think it is anything too serious, but I have learned not to push my luck.

Gosh, Mark. So sorry about the muscle pull. Sounds like you were doing great! Those were some good numbers to be putting up over your head!
Get better quickly!
