Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Alright [B]Pat[/B] you inspired me. I did the weighted pullup WOD at the club near work (not my CF box).

35, 45, 55 ,65, 75, 80, 85f.

I found it alot easier to hook a dumbell to a belt and dangle the weight that way. New PR by 15lbs.

John SR--so you do the walking lunges with your knees touching the ground? I know this is the proper form---yet I am cautious to avoid this. Maybe I should use knee pads?

Jeff, thanks for all the feedback.

Diane, how's the 30 day Paleo trial going? I had too many slips lately and have lost some ground losing wt.

Did the "Tabita something else" workout.

PullUPs: 14,15,11,6,7,7,6,4. 70 (74) -4
PushUPs: 15,17,12,12,10,10,10,6 92 (102) -10
SitUPs: 11,14,12,12,12,12,12,12 97 (91) 6
Squats: 25,20,22,17,20,15,16,18 153 (121) 32

(last time doing the WOD). This left me with a positive of 24. New PR.:pepper::pepper:

Situps were done on GHD. This was one of those workouts that left me laying on the floor very still for a few moments. You know, other than a small number of other crossfitters and some runners on the treadmills, people at my gym just don't work out very hard! A year ago I wouldn't have said that and I didn't think it either.:yikes:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Been missing a few days (but not of ab planks). I'm struggling with motivation since I'm not following a plan or have an affiliate to follow. I used to do really well with consistency when I set out structured workouts for a couple of months or just attending CF classes. To be honest we had great programming at CFOttawa, but they aren't posting them online as often.

I'm thinking of giving C.A. a try or some other structured strength first priority/crossfit second cycle. I'm really missing lifting heavy things often. The Dutch Lowy blog has some interesting commentary on how to choose.

Meanwhile since my last post ...
Ab planks[/B]
Day 18 ab planks (throughout the day) - 3:00, 2:30, 1:15 x10 = 18 minutes
Day 19 ab planks (throughout the day) - 1:20 x 12, 1:00 x 3 = 19 minutes
Day 20 ab planks (throughout the day) - 1:20 x 15 = 20 minutes

[QUOTE=Pat Quigley;683813]Diane, how's the 30 day Paleo trial going? I had too many slips lately and have lost some ground losing wt. [/QUOTE]

Pretty well. I am on Day 22. I have had a couple of slipups. I didn't have any alcohol for three weeks, then had beer. It was good. I'd been thinking about it constantly, and indulging cured that. And I had some sugarfree gum on a hormonal kind of day. That made my stomach ache and bloat, and I actually threw the rest of my gum stash out. I am addicted to that stuff. Otherwise, I am doing well. A little vinegar, a little salt, but NO grains. Yesterday I had some butter. Man, that was good. But no cheese or milk. I'd like some cheese.:D

I feel good, but I don't know if I feel [I]that [/I]much better. I think mostly I feel good because of the lack of alcohol (which means I sleep better). I'd like more saturated fat as per Primal Blueprint. And maybe a little less fruit would help too. I'll definitely play with it.

I don't really miss grains!

Oh, and I have lost between 3-5 pounds, depending upon the day. No significant strength gains. My energy levels are stable after the first week to ten days.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Someone described it to me as just having your knee kiss the ground. Well, for me in the beginning it was like kissing your sister on the cheek and toward the end as I was getting smoked it was a full-on European knee-cracking tongue fest. I might have wished for knee pads but wouldn't have had the stones to wear them.

Awesome Fran time. And Rx'd to boot. I wish...

Today I went to the new "Crossfit" area in Caro gym (they really can't call it Crossfit for a host of reasons.) Really nice as equipped by a Rogue package. C2's, Dynamax balls, rings, etc. etc.

1000m C2 4:32.3

WOD: (I made this up on the spot as I was excited about using the rings and bumper plates. As to the efficacy of my programming, meh... )
AMRAP in 20 minutes of:
5 ring dips
10 ring pushups
15 #135 dead lifts

I managed 6 rounds even... was really hustling to knock out the last 5 DL's. Note to self: Next time don't pair dips with pushups.
