The Barn

Starting this Thread to track my workouts. My goal is general fitness and to improve my Rock Climbing ability. I retired in August 2009 and am going through the house renovation phase of retirement. Probably another year to go until the house is back in shape. For the first time in many years, I now have the time to workout on a daily basis, to try and get me back in shape.

The Barn is a 30' x 40' building with a climbing wall and some basic Crossfit equipment. I will add more equipment as time goes on; until then will improvise with what I have.

I would like to thank Tim Babcock for introducing me to Crossfit.
