Tuesday December 1, 2015

Walked 1 mile as fast as I could, including all out up the big hill. This got me winded, and that's a good thing.

Rowed 1k in 8:05 to warm up.
Rested 1 minute
Rowed 1k in 4:26, this also got me winded.

Stretched and mobilized

3x115 (missed the third one)
3x135 (missed all three)
4x145 (missed all four)

Front Squats
1x255 (then I stopped, b/c my thighs were alternating between jello and concrete. they had subsequently settled on concrete. tomorrow ought to be "fun")

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@JT Overhead squats = :censored: I have mucho respect for your weights with those.

Last Night:

Snatch - kg 50x2 55x2 60 63 64(141lbs)
Bench-kg 60x2 70x2 80x2 90x2 95(209lbs)x2

Have I mentioned I am the worlds worst bench presser?

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Andrew, to break any snatch records I figure I'm going to have to squat snatch it. Right now I split snatch. So, I need to deal with the OHS "goat" and get up over 200#. So, thanks for the kind words, but understand my frustration with missing 145#...

Wednesday December 2, 2015

Went for a 1 mile walk, alternating walking forwards, backwards, shuffling left, shuffling right, karaoke left, karaoke right. This was a challenge after yesterday's squat-mageddon.

Drove to Ctown
Stretched, a lot...

Presses from the blocks

Jerks from the blocks
1x235 (miss)
1x255 (miss)
1x265 (miss, but man o man was it close)

Walked home in the rain
When I got home I realized I'd driven to CTown.
Stomped back to CTown in the rain.
Drove home.

One of the serious challenges of being a master's athlete is remembering where you left the car...

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Clean & Jerks - kg: 60, 70, 75, 80, 83, 86 (190lbs)
M/G - metcon
3 Rounds For Time (11:26)
3 minutes bike
10 Box jumps @ 24"

The 86 was seriously pressed out, but I had hit the 195 (88.4kg) pretty easy Sunday so it's all OK.

This ends my first block of a crossfit type program. It was cool. I need to fight the urge to do more Powerlifting type stuff right now because of the groin/hip...patience old Jedi...I think for the next block I am going to experiment with the 5 on 2 off template they used but just repeating the M,G/W, M/G/W,M/G, W week because truth is I don't really care much about developing advanced gymnastic skills. It is a hole in my "fitness" I am OK with for now.

I also need to get back on the diet wagon. I had lost 15 lbs while hurt and watching what I ate over about 4 months. i have gained 10 of it back in the past 3 weeks. That is a special kind of stupid right there folks. Back to the preparing stuff ahead of time. I need structure.
