Keep up the good work Michelle!

[B][U]December 9[/U][/B]
5 minutes of jump rope drills
3 circuits: 3 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 15 squats
10 minutes of dynamic stretching and mobility work
Three rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
15 Pull-ups
50 Squats
15 Pull-ups
Shoulder and calf stretching

21 degrees in the garage tonight, so wore my cold weather gear and kept my hat on the whole time and warmed up pretty quick. My arms are feeling pretty sore from all of the pull-ups. Runs and squats play to my strengths, but the pull-ups were a real struggle towards the end. With this weather, my mind is drifting to skiing!

12/10 WOD

Overhead Squats: 1-1-1-1-1
Front Squats: 1-1-1-1-1
Back Squats: 1-1-1-1-1
Try to increase the weights on every repetition and start each new movement with the same weight that you ended with on the one before.

OHS: 75-85-96-105-115
FS: 125-135-155-165-175
BS: 185-205-215-225-245(PR)

Lifting heavy is just fun! Should have started OHS and FS at higher weight so I could have ended at PR's (currently 125 and 185, respectively). Felt like I had more in the tank on OHS and especially FS. Every rep felt great, full depth on every one (except I think I missed one on BS). Cool to get a PR on BS.

After the WOD, ran out to end of Stearns Wharf with Tyler and Glenn. Thanks for suggesting it, it was a stunning morning in Santa Barbara!

Michelle, great time for the dreaded Filty Fifty.

Mobility WOD

Wendler Wave 3 Dead Lift:
5X 330

Called it a day with that and did some coaching w. someone who looked like they were bound and determined to break their low back doing back squats on a Smith machine.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Deb, very impressive performance on the deadlifts and the WOD. It took me over 5 minutes to complete the 50 DUs at the end of the Filthy Fifty so I can't imagine doing 100 and finishing the WOD in 15 minutes. Pat, nice work on the deads and presses and Cliff, same to you on the squats. Those are pretty heavy weights you're pushing! I would love to put up those numbers some day.

Missed another work-out day. Had to be down at the pool early this morning to time at a swim meet and then had to work late.

[B][U]December 11[/U][/B]
5 minutes of jump rope drills
3 circuits: 3 strict pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 15 squats
10 minutes of dynamic stretching and mobility work
[U]Filthy Fifty[/U]
50 Box jump, 24 inch box (2:25)
50 Jumping pull-ups (4:01)
50 Kettlebell swings, 1 pood (5:55)
Walking Lunge, 50 steps (7:18)
50 Knees to elbows (10:39)
50 Push press, 45 pounds (12:22)
50 Back extensions (14:00)
50 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball (17:34)
50 Burpees (24:10)
50 Double unders (29:29)
Shoulder stretching

The time for the Filthy Fifty was not quite legit since I had to stop part-way through for the guys to deliver our Christmas tree and then start again, so I had the advantage of a rest period.

I felt like crap today. The last three stations went on forever, especially the burpees. My shoulders siezed up pretty good doing DUs and it took me over 5 minutes to complete them. I'm getting better at them but am still bad at them.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
12/11 WOD

Mobility WOD. Painful, in a good way.

12/12 WOD @ SBAC.

Find my one-rep max OHS.
Very happy with OHS! 15# PR! :pepper: Used a depth cue and hit it on all reps. These are starting to click!

2000M row.
8:31.6. Started on a sub-8 pace, but couldn't keep it up past about 500M. During the 2nd and 3rd 500M splits, I felt like the loneliest man in the world. Just brutal. Need to get below 8:30 next time for sure. Started picking up the pace in the last 200M, but it wasn't enough to compensate for my slow 2nd and 3rd splits.
