Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
No Crossfit Total today...Heel hurts from yesterdays DL


Row 5555m - 22:34.3

WOD (Thanks to Peter Nathan at Gunx Crossfit, Gardiner, NY)

For time;

KB Snatch (each arm) 53#
Pull Ups
Push Ups (I added this for extra credit)


Usually after a WOD, I can get to a box or something and sit and gasp until I recover. I don't normally fall to the floor in a puddle of my own sweat but this was an introduction to a new kind of suck ! Why does this stuff always look easier on paper (or the monitor) ?

Mowed yard yesterday and did a lot of yard work. Did not have time to go the gym today so I did 50 x 2 pushups in the morning and 50 x 2 pushups in the evening. I am maxing out on my deadlift in the morning, hoping to get 425.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I went to CrossFit in the park today. The Rx'd workout was 100 burpees, and if you stopped for more than five seconds, you had to run 100 meters. Since I'd not done burpees before (at CrossFit anyway), I got scaled back to 100 pushups on my knees. I ran 6 times. Nice break!

The knee pushups are becoming too easy. A month ago I could not do a single all-the-way-to-the-ground regular pushup. Did ten in my living room a little while ago. :evilsmile

Since I didn't think I worked hard enough at CrossFit, I ran 1.5 miles around the park behind my building. Now I'm satisfied.

WU - 20 minutes brisk walk at Long Beach boardwalk
WOD - Intervals run 1 min, walk 30 seconds for 1 mile


WU - Overhead squats PVC ( I was already warm)
Front Squat -10 reps 30/50/60/70 wrists start to hurt
Back Squat - 10 reps 80/100/120/130
Bench Press- 10 reps 65/90/110/ 5x130

Local track - jog 1 mile, walk 3/4, sprint last 400

I was eating a Supreme protein bar during the WOD and I noticed a bring difference in endurance. I never tried that before.

"It's not the reps,time orweight that counts, it's the satisfation you get from doing them."
