Re: The Barn
You may be #181 out of 185, but you are still in it!

A lot of people will get the 60 bar facing burpees and 30 OHS but zero muscle ups (e.g., me).

Many people will only get the 60 bar facing burpees.

Some people won't even get the 60 bar facing burpees.

So hang in there Norm. #181 out of #185 is actually #181 out of 185 + 20 million in your age group!

So 181 out of 20,000,185 is pretty impressive!

And, I like your competitive spirit that you are actually in the Games.

I will be officially be in next year when I am 50.

Re: The Barn
JT, thanks for the encouragement! I do the burpees tomorrow @ 9am.
I will look forward to following your progress in the games next year.

"Rest Day"-Dug up my gutter drain at the barn and repaired.

Re: The Barn
Hey Norm be sure to post your score b/c there are only 28 people left in the 50-54 category, the squat/jerk workout eliminated over 60% of the competitors!

You only need to get one burpee to complete the workout...

Re: The Barn
If I'm reading this right I'm ranked 90 out of 92 right now(score has been entered and validated) - but there will be more entries by Sunday. I'm also on the Crossfit Youngstown team, not sure what the teams ranking is this week.

If anyone is interested there is a video of my eighth muscle up on the Crossfit Youngstown website, under WOD Archives, Sunday,10 April 11.

Re: The Barn
Awesome video, Norm. Great job on the muscle ups. You are looking fit.

Re: The Barn
Here is a cool website that is analysing the games.

This particular link shows how 11.3 dropped many athletes.

It also shows how valuable being able to do just one muscle up is to scoring...

Yeah Norm I'm reading it this morning as you being in 96th overall, and having come 73rd in 11.4, but you are right that there are still more results to come.

If there is a pullup WOD, are you going to crush it b/c you are a climber???

Re: The Barn
Morning: Joe from Crossfit Youngstown came to "The Barn" today. Did some bouldering and a couple rope climbs/belay. Played around on the Bachar ladder. He did well for his first time; strong athlete!

Afternoon; more climbing, finished the rest of the 20 routes I didn't get to in the morning.

I'm 210 out of 218 after week 4 (it still may change as the scores get valadited).

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:01 AM.
