Hi Everyone,

Missing you all and missing workouts - - crazy work schedule to start off (end of September) and then fell [B]hard[/B] at work; still awaiting word on x-rays of my R/wrist and L/knee but until then, told to lay off the CF just to be safe.

Looks like you all are killing it! Great jobs. Take care and stay strong.

Stephen, wondered where you have been. Good to hear from you.

Terry, congradulations on not only competing, but competing so well. I am amazed at the amount of exercise performed in one day. This is three work outs. How did you fuel yourself for this? How much rest between each round of workout? Do the larger Xfit challenges do this much work in one day?

Definitely sorry to hear about your injury at work. I also have missed your posts. Take care. I wish you a prompt and thorough recovery.

Great job in the master's competition. I would think I was a monster if I could do a 235 squat clean. Not surprised that it took guys just into their 40's to beat you. You are the over-50 KING in my book.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Today I did modified "Michael". I left out the last set of 50 sit-ups and back extensions. I forgot to start my watch so I also had no time.
I ran the 800's on the treadmill at 0% incline.
My warm-up was miserable today. I took a rest day yesterday, but everything seemed to hurt today. It is a psychological test to keep doing this stuff when it feels so un-athletic because every movement is uncomfortable for the first 10-15 minutes, and I feel like a snail that has been fed super glue.

[B]Terry[/B], Props on the competition. Somehow in America we've gotten a cultural perception that "old" people (define that for me, huh?) are supposed to sit on porch waiting for the mail and reading the obits waiting for their turn. Guys look you are turning that around. Proud of you.

[B]Stephen[/B], Sounds like they broke their barrista. Hang tough and get better.

C2 500m 2:34
10x3 pullups
5x3 dips
10x3 pushups
10x3 butterfly situps

Thought I was doing Michael (3 rounds, 800m sprint, 50xback ext, 50xsitups) but I messed up and did this:
4 rounds for time
800m C2 (4:01/3:40/3:34/3:24)
25 supermans
25 butterfly situps
in 24:11.7

That's what I get for forgetting my notebook.

Great job, Terry! You are a superhero! :super:

I like to say I am training for the Senior Olympics.

Gorilla Run on Saturday. 3.5 miles in a gorilla suit. :D

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Diane, the Olympics for which species ?:)

Did Michael today: 3RFT: 800m run, 50 back ext., 50 situps. The run was on a treadmill at 5.0 spd, 0 incline. BE and SU were on a GHD. Finished in 28:37. The last time for this was 33:30.:kicking0:
