Diverticulitis, heart attacks...what's next?

Going to get a physical Thursday, first in a decade...I'll let you know what my doc finds, and hopefully all this crossfitting will help me combat my leprosy infested colonic volvulus with a myocardial infacted syphallitic lesion.

Not feeling energized lately started WODS and just went MEH.
Went to some kettlebell 40# left right swing snatch front squat etc.
To about 60 reps

Variation of the wall ball off of GHD (don't have GHD and may never get this)
abmat on ground slight bounce off wall with 20# medicine ball oh throw situp
slight bounce due to worried about house a little.

OK lack of motivation, so so wods and yesterday I PR squat 5x175# (5x5 progression)
Today deadlift PR 275# x 5


Wish you all health, I hope you fellow over 50s bounce back from health issues.

[B]@ Pat Q.[/B]

I have been dealing with much the same for the past month, with a completely different outcome. Having to heavy breathe during box jumps, wall balls and DU's. I continued to workout for 4 months, my 5K time increased (got worse) by 1 minute four months ago, then an additional increase of 1 minute 2 months ago. At any point that I was breathing heavy and pushed harder (thinking it was all in my head) I would start having this horrible burning sensation in my stomach.

Went to the doc, he sent me to the cardiologist. Mind you all my Cholesteral is 135, my blood pressure stays right at 110/70. Both considered excellent. He does the treadmill stress test, symptoms present at 13:26 which is a nice steady quick run uphill. No change in the EKG. He sends me for an echocardiogram. I head to DC to run the Marine Corps Marathon 10K with some friends. They call and recommend that I not run. Come back home and they did the angiogram last Monday. I have a perfectly healthy heart and don't even need to go back for a follow-up with the cardiologist. The question still remains as to what is causing the stomach burning. I have just about resigned myself to lactate threshould as it only happens under extreme exertion.

If nothing else, the angiogram forced me to take a full week off from working out.

Listen to your body peeps!!

Waiting to hear back from my doctor for what's next. In the mean-time I've inserted an extra rest day and backed down on the push for one more week.

David - What can I say? It sucks to get old! But it beats the alternative! I'm convinced crossfitting helps us get through any health issues!! BTW, Nice Cindy!!

Tom - Congrats on the BS & DL PRs!!

Michelle - I hear you on those increasing 5K times! You are right about listening to your body! Great job on that Linda!

B-ball court width-
high knees
butt kickers
10 push ups
Frankenstein Walks

Squat Jumps
Spidermans
10 hand release push ups

[B]WOD:[/B]
20 min AMRAP:

3 Wall-Climbs
10 Up-Downs
5 Parallette Pass-throughs (forward + back = 1)
10 Grasshoppers (right + left = 1)

4 rounds + 3 Wall Climbs + 10 Up-Downs + 3.5 Parallette Pass-throughs

[I]Wall Climbs were the worst! The whole WOD smoked my shoulders!! Forward Parallette Pass-throughs were easy, backs not so much. Grasshoppers were much more difficult if you let your shoulders drift back from the plank position! I really wanted to get 5 rounds in! NEXT TIME!:ranting2:[/I]

Clean & Jerk work: 75# & 125#: Did at least 6 doubles set at each weight! Good Class!:D

i second or third the idea that crossfit is helping with health issues. i feel in the best shape of my life thanks to crossfit.

talked to my coach today about training for next junes tougher mudder in whistler. he said to start doing a 5 k run or wind sprints at least once a week now and then come the new year we will ramp up the training. i am aprehensive and yet looking forward to this event as it is 4 times longer than i have ever run.

Bill:

Can't agree more. Feeling great these days. The irony is that a couple of years ago I was doing yoga six times a wek and teaching, but my back was killing me. Don't know if it's the paleo/anti-inflammatory diet of the work outs, but I'm feeling better doing this.

Nice job on the clean and jerks. I worked on that this evening at my box as well as:
Heaving snatch balance 3-3-2-2
Hang snatch 3-3-2-2
Hang power clean 3-3-2-2


I was fried. Arms just ached still from Cindy. Worked with 65# on the lifts but not my day for PR's. Will try to rest tomorrow but probably won't.

11/16 WOD

AMRAP 20 Min
15 Overhead Squats (95#/65#)
10 Man Makers
60 Second Plank

Scratch. Felt kind of crappy this week, but decided to show up for a WOD and see what happens. Did warm up jog and warm up, but felt weak and breathless, so I decided to call it a day and go home. Feel like a wimp but my brain tells me this is the right thing. To quote Homer Simpson: "Alright Brain, you don't like me, and I don't like you. But let's just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer."

William I completely concur with you on this WOD it torched my shoulders when we did it as well. I made it 4 rds + 3 WC.

This morning I met Fran again. I allowed her to take my MOJO but I finished. 12:42 which is ridiculous but it's over and done. My quads feel like I did tabata squats for the first time.
