Terry- Yep, that's a tattoo. I'm the designated heavily tattooed guy for my affiliate. It seems like every affiliate has to have 1 or 2.

Charles-Your broccoli is dancing in perfect time to the music I have on itunes right now. It's almost hypnotizing.

Diane D- Like the new avatar.

Pat-Once again, good luck in the "Strong Person". Good Lynne score.

John W - Have a blast at the KB cert! I love KBs (to the extent that one can love a kettlebell!) and I'm dieing to hear all about it once you are back!

Pat - Your globo-wish-list was quite enjoyable :D. Once again, good luck this weekend. Please keep us apprised of your performance.

Charlie - Thanks for the rowing encouragement. After my indoor training this winter with the Three Rivers Rowing Association, I thought I was really hot stuff on a C2. Unfortunately, you guys make me look like chopped liver!! Of course that just juices up my competitiveness and will make me row better in the future. And as for your "Don't they know I'm in my fifties" stuff, don't pull our legs! Brad told me that for an old guy, you are in pretty decent shape.

I am out of town, and my arms are really sore from the two "DT"s

So, I went to a local high school track with the intention of running six 400m runs with 2 min. rest between each.
I ran 2:12, 1:54, 1:51, 1:49

On that 4th 400 I felt a little tightness coming up in my quad, so I decided not to risk run the other two 400's that I had planned. I did 30 pull-ups and that was it.

It is great to see so many people posting and working hard. I wish I could keep up the pace with the workouts all of you are doing. The Over-50's gang is really impressive.

I've lived in Ahwatukee for 18+ years. I have had my psychology practice here for 10+ years. I worked out at the Gold's for some 4 years and at Lifetime Fitness for the last 2-3 years. When I started crossfit 10 months ago, I paid one of the trainers at Lifetime to teach me the OLY moves. He moved on. I joined one of the affiliates in Chandler for a few months. Now I'm back at Lifetime. There are at least 4 other guys doing the main web site crossfit workouts. I have not been able to coordinate schedules with one or more of them. When I moved here in '90, I was into my second year of triathlons. Ahwatukee was a community of new roads, few houses, some hills, and little traffic. Ahwatukee is now home to some 85000 residents with lots of traffic. I still love being around South Mountain for hiking.

I couldn't decide whether to go for a run this morning or go snoop around at some Saturday morning Garage Sales so my husband suggested that I do both!

I put on my backpack and ran about a mile to the first one where I bought two cookbooks for 50-cents. I ran a little less than a half-mile to the next one where I didn't buy anything. I ran just a couple of blocks to the next one where I bought a set of antique silver demitasse spoons (at an unbelievable bargain price). I ran about another half mile to the final one where I bought another cookbook and a nice potato masher. Then I ran home with everything clonking against my back. It was a lot of fun and I spent a grand total of 6.50! Shopping and fitness combined - gotta love it!

Today (outside):
[U]warmup - 3 rounds[/U]
2 min skipping
10 PU
10 SQ
10 SU
20 sec. SS L&R leg (samson stretch)

[U]WOD (from CF Ottawa)[/U]
AMRAP in 20 min.

10 divebomber pushups
15 donkey kicks

Score: 5 rounds + 4 DBPU

The divebomber pushups got ugly really fast but I would not resort to my knees. The donkey kicks were hanstand kickups too the wall (both feet).
Surprised me. I had my eye on the timer during the 4th rd and thought I was not going to finish it.

Diane - nice multi-tasking!
