Thanks, Marianne! I'm hoping to be able to stay with SBUX, but it seems highly unlikely at this point. Seems my position here in CA fell through the cracks (cost savings) and my transfer back got messed up. No positions available now, so I think I see some writing on the wall.

On a really positive note, this frees me up to work on helping our box get new clients and perhaps then doing what I really want to do - - train others!

Thanks for asking, Nancy and Justin! Feeling a LOT better, but this "thing" still seems to be hanging on. At least I wasn't totally winded carrying something to the top of the stairs inside our house like I was the other day!

Looking forward to starting back up.....easily at first, I'm afraid.

[I][B]100310 WEDNESDAY

[/B][/I]Doctor visit - - follow-up today. Great news; I can start working out again! No pneumonia, just a nasty respiratory infection and info that my sub-clinical asthma (I've had most of my life) is probably no longer sub-clinical......

The bad news....X-rays showed old scarring and damage due to second hand smoke for years (mom was a chain-smoker). Dr. said the hard workouts (e.g., CrossFit) and deep breathing necessitated through the workouts were the best thing I could do to keep lung function up as I get older!

Let's hear another big round of applause for CF!!

It's great to hear you have a doctor that's not afraid to suggest his patients actually exercise.

Welcome back and get in the gym!

Great news that you can start working out again! :)

This week i also had another big round of applause for CF! A new client of mine (29 year old skinny chick with chronic back pain for years) had been doing CF style WODs with me for ~5 weeks...then she got into a car accident!After the accident her doctor told her that the only reason she can walk after the accident is because of the workouts she has been doing! Her doctor said the only unfortunate thing is that insurance won't cover my services!

Thanks for the encouragement and the kick in the butt, everyone! Last few days have had no energy at all......naps every afternoon and no workouts. BLEH!

[I][B]100315 MONDAY

[/B][/I]First workout in about two weeks.......No way I was ready to do "Murph" with the rest of the CF Sonora crew, so did:

[B]Jump rope workout - - approx. 50:00
[/B]Lots of short rest breaks
Concentrated on DU attempts - chained three twice today!
Mixed these in with 5 sets X 100 single. All but last set unbroken.

Elizabeth Terris 03-15-2010 09:31 PM

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
Way to get back into it. Glad your doc cleared you to exercise.

Marianne Urbanski 03-16-2010 09:36 AM

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
Steve: what is important is that you did something.. i tell you that jumping rope for 50 min can be brutal !! great job on the DU.. I still have yet to string 2!! :)
Hope you are feeling back to your "ol' self" soon!:highfive:

Thanks ET and Marianne! The jump rope work was both fun........and frustrating. Getting the timing, the actual "jump" technique, and movement of the wrists down are simply crazy concepts I just can't seem to master.......yet. Probably just like my kipping, it'll just click someday soon. While I am at times a klutz, I still am reasonably coordinated (or at least I thought I was).

BTW, I didn't know a person could experience DOMS from jumping rope. OUCH! Calves, hammies, and insides of my elbows were NOT happy with me today. Throw in the thrusters and SDHPs we did for our WOD today and my whole body is rebelling.....

[/B][I]Glad I scaled this one back a bit. Legs felt like rubber and didn't want to work when I tried to run......Really glad I pushed through this WOD. It was fun in a perverse (yay, CF) sort of way and will be fun to do again when I'm back up to snuff.[/I]

That is a nasty looking WOD! I love (hate) couplets broken up with running/rowing. They are a special kind of evil.

Welcome back!

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log
 
Hey Steve! Sucks to see your still fighting off DOMS, but Annie has always been one of my favorite WODs to looosen up all that tightness.

And that thruster/SDHP madness with the sprinting sounds fun....as in evil fun. ;)

Dave,

Annie is one of my faves also - - If I ever get the DUs down, I'll be able knock it out in short order.

You would think I'd have learned in a year of CF not to [U][B]ever[/B][/U] do 50 minutes (even with breaks) of jump rope work the day before a Thruster/SDHP WOD! :rofl::rofl:

Forgot to mention we did a quick Tabata (Mountain Climbers) after the WOD today. My score: 11 (legs kept trying to cramp)

WOD: "Randy"

[/B][B]75 X Power Snatch @ 75#/45#

[B]TIME: 7:42[/B]
My first ever "Randy." I enjoyed this WOD and will enjoy it even more when I learn to get under the bar. Felt the 55# was a good starting weight and allowed for good intensity. Some technique work and I should be able to do this one Rx'd.
