[QUOTE=Nancy Cohen;748406]I didn't wake up in time to make it to masters swimming, so, instead, I went to the beach and did a fun interval workout in the sand...running, squatting, lunges, push ups, walking, planks....then walked the doggies....then sat and watched a couple of paragliders landing on the beach.

Just a beautiful morning! :)[/QUOTE]





Nancy,

haha!!! If it makes you feel better, my mortgage is probably twice what yours is, for a house 1/2 the size!!! :D

EDIT: Hey Jeff, I just noticed you live in Glen Ellyn, IL. I lived in Lisle many years ago. And, I have to adjust my estimates I made above...my mortgage is probably 3 times what yours is, for a house 1/3 the size!!

M.E. Overhead Squats 5-5-5-3-3-3

[B]95,115,125,125,135,145 PR[/B]
tried rep at 155 but failed

rest 5 min, then:

Tabata Mash-Up:

double-unders [B]22, 15, 20, 13, 17, 15, 13, 15, 12[/B]
abmat sit-ups [B]15, 15, 13, 13, 14, 15, 14, 12, 10[/B]
kb swings, 2 pood [B]12, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9, 7, 7, 11[/B]

Make sure to alternate each exercise, so 20 sec double-unders, 10 sec rest, 20 sec sit-ups, 10 sec rest, etc. for a total of 8 cycles per excercise.

P-chain: 4×12 glute bridges

Did an extra round cause I saw that I only wrote had 7 rounds on the board (duh… just finished the 8th round). Buddy said clock stopped, so I was thinking I screwed up setting up the timer up, so I hit restart to do one more round.

I've done modified versions before, but this was the first time as Rx'd. Hard to say what was the most hellish: 24" box jumps and #20 wall balls were certainly contenders, as was perennial fan favorite burpees (yay burpees!).
[/QUOTE]

[B]Jim[/B] nice job. Filthy Fifty, I did this Monday, beat my November 09 time by a few minutes, but w/20" box (we don't have 24s) and 16# ball.

The girls there use 20# ball and 33# on PP?
(I just find that a little odd b/c the push press is the easiest part for me. I gotta prax w/the 20# ball). Burpees - killer at the end....but at least you know easy DU's and youre done!

[B]JSR[/B] thanks for the Charlie update.... I figured he might be on some secret broccoli mission!!

LOL! I wasn't really gone, I was just reading posts from the phone and not posting much here. But I love reading about everyone's workouts and accomplishments!

Jaeckel, which day is your birthday? I am all done with Easter birthdays, thank goodness. The next time it hits I will be 102! I guess it is possible I could live that long.

MY DOUBLE UNDERS ARE COMING! :pepper: We had 50 total for the last exercise of our workout this morning, and I got 19 total, usually interspersed with singles. Once I got three (with singles) before I stepped on the rope. So I did 19 doubleunders, untold singles among them, then I finished with 150 singles. Called it time at 22:22. Then I did a few more double-unders before I collapsed to the floor. :kicking0:

One of my gym-mates (new guy with gray hair) said I am tough. That is the ultimate compliment! :D

Dang, [B]Tim[/B], that is a pile of DB swings. Hurts my knees just thinking about it.

Today was supposed to be a rest day but I was feeling so lousy about all the 5 year old birthday cake and ice cream I've been tucking away lately....

WU: C2 1 Mile/#45 plate farmer carry/3xCindy/back ext/#20 Wallball burpees

1000m freestyle swim 27:03 Took my time and tried to loosen the shoulders and back up some. In retrospect I probably shouldn't have done a CFWU before the swim.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
Steve, I don't think you lose progress on the double-unders. I think your brain picks up right where you left off or maybe a little more advanced than where you left off.

I checked out the kipping videos you directed me to! I know they're coming. I hope soon!

I had yoga last night (at CrossFit!!!) and today is my rest day. My body feels completely wiped out. I like it when I feel like I've had a good week and I need my rest day.

you guys are having all the fun. My head cold dropped down into bronchitis. getting sleep is an issue. The coughing has actually made my head ache. Doc gave me some very strong syrup. Stops the coughing, and everything else you could think of doing. Hope to be back at it next week. Switched my Level 1 cert. from San Diego later this month to Scottsdale in May.

John J.,

Just had to quip that we in Kah-li-foan-ya get Ahhhh-nold every day! Beautiful up here too, but still no runs/workouts until the middle of next week, if the doc clears me.

Pat,

Hope the cold goes away soon!

Diane,

Thanks. I just need to keep practicing the DUs and they'll come. You're gonna be ripping out those kipping pull-ups in no time.

3/8 WOD

Snatch Grip Push Press
5-5-3-3-3

Followed by:
3 Rounds for Time of:
15 Overhead Squats (65#)
200 M Run

65-75-85-95-95. Glad to be working on snatch elements, I need lots of work before I feel I can start lifting to my capacity. Both Brian and I tried 105#, and the bar didn't budge. With the small muscles like the shoulders, it's pretty obvious where you stop! I'm thinking about my Press Elite Goal of 120#, and it has to be close, since I was able to get the snatch grip press up at 95#.

5:24. Really happy with my OHS! I used the 33# bar since all the 45#'ers were in use. I put 17.5# on each side, so I actually was doing 68#. Felt like I was getting enough depth on each rep. Talked to Traver about the quality of my reps recently, and we agreed I'm doing much better with my "challenges" re legitimate reps. ;) The runs were the bottleneck; not until the last run did I feel like I was really trying to go hard.

All in all, I felt very good this morning. I got plenty of sleep and rest over the weekend. Ate too much bread, crackers, and cheese (but just the right amount of champagne and wine :D ) at an Oscar party last night, so this week I'm going to eat much cleaner, starting with cold salmon and fruit for breakfast, plus one of KJ's awesome paleo cupcakes. If I didn't know the cupcakes were paleo, I would have guesses they were from crush cakes. Hard to believe they can be so sweet with no sugar!

Cupcakes? :)

I had a great deck of cards workout yesterday, facecards removed. It was burpees, situps, Amer. KB swings and slamball. Jokers were 400m run. I enjoyed it, especially when it ended. :)

Today is a rest day. Tomorrow is Fight Gone Bad, which I've only done once before. Gotta go check my journal and see if I can find how that went. I'm sure I can do better now. :smiley_ev

I'm w. DM on this one, what is a paleo cupcake?

did the 100307 workout from the main site. first work out in 1.5 weeks. This was "Helen": 3RFT: 400m run, 21 KB swings w. 1.5 pood (or 55#DB), and 12 pull ups. Last time I did this it was a "ROWING Helen". Ran of treadmill at 4.5 MPH. Finished in 20:31. Got winded a few times w. this. Just over bronchitis.

3/9 WOD

”Karen”
150 Wallball Shots for Time

12:52 @ 20# (as Rx'd). Nothing fun about this one. Not particularly painful, just a long, boring slog. I need to continue working on making all reps legit, although I am getting better. An Elite Goal is 40 consecutive wall balls @ 20#, so aimed for that to start, but only got to 20. My workout log indicates I did this on 9/11/2008 at Santa Barbara Athletic Club with a 15# ball in 9:00. I'm sure my reps were more legit this time around.
