Happy birthday, Diane! :D

Re: CrossFit at the Globo, the little gym in my office building just released an advertisement and among the other kinds of classes it offers is "CrossFit". I can't imagine it's more than once or twice a week. It's a very small gym with lunchtime group classes.

Happy Birthday!

I've been thinking about fun workout or active things to do when I turn 50 (besides officially posting in this thread :D). I like your workout idea, so I might steal that. I could also do things like, swim 50x50, cycle 50 miles. I guess the possibilities are endless. :)

Diane, happy birthday. There is a workout called "Filthy Fifty" around here somewhere. I like the idea of a special workout for your birth year. remember Jack LaLanne pulled some 72 boats on his 72nd B'day.

It is with fear and trepidation that I ask this group to design a "Dirty 65" for me. :o

Did a scaled "Elizabeth" today: 3 RFT: 21-15-9 of Cleans and Ring dips. I scaled the cleans to 65 lb to get improvement in form and depth etc. Finished in 11: 58.

The physical therapist has got me practicing getting my body down quickly. I imagine that I am pulling my knees to my chest---without having my feet leave the ground. It's helping. With 65 lbs, I can do the initial pull and let the bar sail on its own while I get under it. Grazed my chin and chest a few times.

Fran

W/U ROM stuff, hips, shoulders. Air squats to 20, 16 and 12" Plyobox.

21, 15, 9
65 lb thrusters to 14" Dynamax ball
Jumping pullups but lowered down as slow as I could (not very, but slower than just dropping).

10:23

Cool: Jump rope. Able to jump on the right leg again, FINALLY! Able to get a couple double unders. Without CF, I doubt I would have ever discovered the "cure" for this right leg/knee (and thanks Kelly Starrett). Ran 1.2 miles yesterday (blush) 19 minutes, 40 degrees. Slow and a little pain, but able to run again. Now it will just get better.

Happy Birthday to Dianne. :pepper:
