[B]Mark [/B]- Kudos on the Back Squats..it's where I'm going tomorrow
[B]Terry[/B] - Man, I know moving is a pain. The wife and I have moved 7 times since 9-11. It's getting to where we refuse to buy any really nice furniture or appliances because we know the moving company is gonna gank it up. Our last move (KS to GA) we had over $4k in claims against the movers. I know what you're thinking...why doesn't he just do it himself? When you move as often as we do and with 2 little kids...I guess I'm just lazy:smiley_ev

Today:
WUx3:
BW squats 5/10/15
1 min jump rope with DU x1 at the end
pushups 5/10/15
situps 10/15/20
dips 5/10/15
DH pullups 5/7/10
back extensions 10/15/25
burpees 5/10/15
walking lunges 10/10/15
HSPU w/ smith machine assist 5/7/10

WOD was supposed to be 4x800m run, but I sub'd C2 800m with 1 min rest between efforts as follows:
800 - 3:40.9
800 - 3:43
800 - 3:39
800 - 3:38.9

The times are probably pretty close to where I was on the track at 800m before all the knee drama.

[B]Charlie[/B] - Whatsamatter, they got no NIPR where you are or are the Brits teaching you a new version of the Flaming ***hole dance?

Catching up. Looks like lots of solid efforts the past few days. My sympathies Terry. We've been moving around the house (kitchen remodel, then dining room, then living room, then installing the old cabinets in the basement, etc.) the past 3 months and that's been bad enough.

5/9/09 Kayaking with the 17 year old son. Beautiful day. Good times.

5/10/09 Rest day other than mowing the lawn and cooking dinner for the wife and mother-in-law

5/11/09
#1 Taught an early Spinning class
#2 CFWU x 15
Shoulder Press 44x5 x 2; 64x5; 84x5; 94x5; 104x4 (missed rep 5)
High Rep SP 79x12

5/12/09
CFWU x 15
Burgener WU
Power Cleans after WU sets: 132x1; 142x1; 152x1; 162x1; 172x1; 177x1 f
177x1! (pr)
Dead-lift: 152x5; 202x3; 222x2; then 237x5; 247x5; 257x5
then high rep 212x15
Met Con: 1/2 Annie w/class: 25-20-15-10-5 Dbl Unders-Ab-Mat Situps 5:21

5/13/09
CFWU x 15
Burgener WU
Snatch (squat) 94x1 x3; 104x1; 114x1 f; 114x1; 124x1 (not full squat)
Bench Press: 44x5; 94x5; 114x3; then 132x5; 142x5; 152x5 (bwt)
Met Con: "Heavy, Short Cindy" 5 pull-ups (kip), 10 pushups, 15 squats, done with 40# vest for 12:00. I hope I never gain 40 lbs!
9 rds + 5 pullups. As usual, pushups were the weakest and only exercise broken. I'd blame the BP, but I'm sure that was a minor factor.

Well everyone seems to be making progress even if sometimes it is two steps forward and one step back. I guess that is the key to fitness over 50: just keeping at it, "turtle-like".

WOD: "Cindy" as Rx'd
20 Rnds ( I finished in 19:30,but my mental effort was set for 20 rnds and I wasn't going any further)

Not at all..I am with you...Last 3 moves we had profesional movers, mainly because they were across country and the company I worked for paid for it. In fact last move, 4 kids, 2 dogs, 3 cars cost them over $40,000.

I took today and tomorrow off work to try and finish the big stuff.

Today - 05/14/09
Missed the 6AM workout and had to go to the noon workout on the North Shore

All running:

Warm-up run along the river

Various forms of sprinting steps for first 30 minutes
Varying distances of hill sprints for last 30 minutes

I was fast and determined but this workout crushed me. My legs are now so stiff that I'm limping around the house. I think it's time to hit the bathtub. Is it too early to have a glass of wine?

[B]Robert[/B] - You killed Cindy; great job. 20 is my target...my best having been 19
[B]Scott[/B] - Looks like you've been busy with SS. Just getting started myself.
[B]Terry [/B]- Yup, I'd like to have just 10% of the money the army allots for moving people around... :o My 5 yo daughter, Maggie, insisted I use this pink icon to indicate embarassment at having been bested in the kids/dogs/cars category.
[B]Diane[/B] - It's happy hour somewhere in the world; heck, you earned it, I'd say.

:thanx: I opened up a yummy bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and am enjoying a glass right now - the legs feel better already.

I'm going to have to take it easy during tomorrow's workout because my husband and I leave on Saturday for a hiking vacation through Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Being stiff and sore is not in the program.

Today
4 rounds of run 800meters
I took 3 min. rest between each run
My times: 4:14, 4:07, 4:10, 4:23

My stepdaughter, Kayleigh, graduates from Texas Women's University on Saturday, so my workouts may be interrupted. I am a proud stepfather. Kayleigh made all "A's" and one "B" in all of her classes to earn her Psychology degree in 4 years of college. She is the hardest working student I know.

Diane-
I envy that hiking trip. That should be great fun.

Kevin-
Glad you are back at it. This bunch will really challenge you.
