[QUOTE=Bill Hoogsteden;1261405] Alden, TGUs are harder than they have right to be!
@Bill - You ain't kidding! Anything that tough must be good for me. ;)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
While I'm not over 50 (46) I do read this board from time to time for inspiration, particularly when I feel "old" and I see you guys keeping at it.

Just read that JT passed away. I always looked forward to his posts. Great guy and always left me feeling inspired after I read his posts. I always admired the support he gave (and received) from this group of guys. He seemed to always give lots of encouragement and my sense was he was a standup guy. See you guys in 4 years.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice work guys! Patrick, I hear you on the shoulder stuff. Been there, done that! Thanks for the kind words on 16.3! One of the guys at the box complimented me on my C2Bs. Stuff like this makes my day!

Malik, thanks for checking in! Age is just a number! You were right about JT, he inspired us as well.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Malik - Welcome. Yes, JT was an inspiration and I miss his posts. And yes, we are all getting older but we aren't aging gracefully. We are kicking and screaming every step of the way to maintain quality of life and slow down Father Time.

3/16 Powder day at Copper Mountain. My legs are toast after three powder days in a row. I think tomorrow is going to be a rest day...

The repaired shoulder has ached all day. I don't think it liked the windmills so I'll lay off them for a day or two and then use one of my rehab weights.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Bill - Congratulations on another orbit of the sun. The goal at this point is to keep orbiting!

Speaking of speedos... Last Friday there was a guy at Arapahoe Basin ski resort skiing in a speedo and nothing else. The ladies in our group were unimpressed since he was pretty skinny and under-developed. Nothing like us manly men here on the Over 50 Crossfitters forum. :kicking0:
