Hello Ron and Rolf,

Welcome. The more, the merrier.


Rippetoe's book is excellent. I just read it last month. It was more technical than I expected.

Feeling great today. Did bench press and power cleans today at AM squadron PT.

Bench Press
WU Sets: 2 x 45, 5 x 95, 3 x 110, 2 x 145
Work Sets: 3 x 5 x 160

Power Clean
WU Sets: 2 x 45, 5 x 85, 3 x 105, 2 x 130
Work Sets: 3 x 5 x 145

Thinking about taking a crack at today's WOD. Scale the wt a bit and maybe fewer rounds? We'll see.


Runway 12 here at Offutt AFB has some pretty interesting crosswinds, too. You can be on short final, put in your crosswind corrections and then just as you flare and touchdown, buildings and trees block the wind forcing you to quickly remove said corrections. Just when you think you're safe, you get past the buildings and the cross wind returns. The AF used to not allow landing beyond a certain crosswind unless you were certified. To top it all off, you have to deal with a 0.7% downhill gradient. Great fun.

Elected to not try anything else today. Shortly, after writing my previous entry I started to feel crappy again. Will wait another day.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In

Nice job on the PT workout. Sorry you ended up feeling poorly later on.

Man, your Runway 12 sounds a bit like CEC's 29....though you are right, we didn't have to deal with a .7% grade. Lots of mechanical turbulence due to foliage along 11/29, especially at the approach end of 29. Wind generally liked to split 29-35 (the other runway being 17/35) and on most days where you had any visibility, you were dealing with winds of between 10 and 20 knots with higher gusts. You had to land long - - about 1/2 way down 29 (5500 feet). Years ago, with the old T-crafts or "Air Knockers" guys would have to come out of the FBO, take hold of the wings, and help walk the planes off the active.......

Mark and Terry,

Nice work on your respective WODs! I'll be hitting it again next week.

BTW, signed up for the Gymnastics Cert at the end of May in Santa Cruz....

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
1. Mark - you're insane. Nice workout. I'm in awe.

2. Instead of "old guys rock" it should be "FOG's Rock". "G" can be guys or gals. Figure out the "F" on your own.

3. Steve, CEC sounds insane. Wing walkers, literally, to taxi in. No thanks. BTW, I gave up flying anything piston powered years ago. Had to dead stick into a fallow field with two of my sons on board in a C-172. Thank you Lycoming. Turbine power only please.
