Lighten up on those weights. You are surpassing my capacity to keep up.

Yesterday - 10/07/09
Drove to the North Shore and no one else showed up. Tough to do a group workout with no leader and no group. Drove home and ran the 444 stairs after it got light out. There was a "wind alert" at the time but, fortunately, it was blowing at my back as I ran up the steps. How good is that? :p

Today - 10/08/09
Group workout on the North Shore - The group had its act together today.

50 jumping jacks
50 mountain climbers
20 bulgarians each leg - arms overhead and calf spiked

50 squats
50 bench dips (32/18 - 25/15/10 - 20/10/10/10 - these took me a while)
50 lunge walks

I thought for sure I could do this in under 10 minutes but I had to do many seconds of resting during the dips due to muscle failure :mad:

Post WOD:
25 plyo step-ups

I'm starting to be able to experiment with heavy weights now that I have three months of CrossFit under my belt and I am better on form. Every time is a PR for me since I haven't done these things before.

So yesterday I deadlifted my bodyweight (135-135-140-140-145-145-145) and today I bench pressed 70# (last time was 60#). Might could have gone higher on bench, but I didn't really have a spotter as all the young men were paired up and I was solo. But it wasn't 1RM anyway, and I got a good workout. :)

I am on Day 8 of my Paleo Challenge. Still feeling kind of wiped out in the afternoon. I'm not sure what that's about. Yesterday I am pretty sure it was about a flu shot. In the mornings, I feel REALLY good and I am sleeping great. I was wondering this morning when the heck did I become a morning person?! :ranting2:

We have birthday WOD's too. I am trying to come up with something for mine, which is in 6 months.

Been off the board for a while. Too many places to post. Here's a recap of this week so far.

Wed, Oct 07

Fran , Rx 8 mins 33 secs, new PR

Tue, Oct 06

Power Snatches on the minute for 15 minutes, up to 115#

Snatch Grip Deadlift 4-4-4-4-4 125 lbs

Mon, Oct 05

Squat Clean 5-5-5-5-5 , 65 scaling to 95#

Back Squat 5x-5 scaling up to 225 new PR

My power output on Fran yesterday was about the same as last but I did it Rx'd so I'm pleased with that. I'm working to get as much prescribed as possible.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Row 2500m - 9:39.0
KB drills

WOD- "Christine"
3 Rds for time
500m Row (1:52.2, 1:56.2, 1:52.1)
12 Bodyweight DL (235)
21 Box jumps (15" box)


Cool down row- 1000m 4:01.7

Per my Dr., I'm not supposed to be doing box jumps and I normally sub step ups for them. BUT, there's a lot of stuff I'm technically not supposed to be doing. So if I'm going to have my hip resurfaced or replaced soon anyway, I figured how much more damage can I actually do ? Decided to give it a shot. Hurts less than heavy squats or 2 pood KB swings (probably banned also if they knew)!
