Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Hi, guys! I've been thinking about joining in here - definitely qualify - and I'm hoping if maybe I start posting some other CF over fifty women might join in. I've been lurking for a while and enjoying your triumphs and helpful hints, especially those that are age aware. I believe I did post a good bit ago, but here is a new mini-intro.

I'm 58yo, have been doing CF off and on since Christmas 2007, for a total of maybe 7 months in that time. My army guy son got me started. I was in horrible shape when I started. It took thought and care to get off a couch or pick anything up off the floor. I've been losing weight for a couple years, but over 50 pounds in the last 8 months and 70 lbs. total. That combined with the CFing has changed my life and opportunities. My goals now revolve around losing another 70-80 pounds and getting generally fit CF style by age 60, coming up in 15 months. Okay, enough history.

Today I did the CF Total, got 425, improved by 40 over 1 month ago. My goals on that is 600 by my 60ieth. PRs: BS 145 (2x), SP: 75 (Yea!), DL: 205 (2x).

I may not be able to post here every WO but will try to keep it regular. All comments and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Congrats to all of you on your extreme progress! You are doing the kind of inspirational work that I need and it does help to read folks that understand age issues.

Three rounds for time of:
Row 500 meters
21 Burpees
Run 400 meters

WU: 500m easy row + 3 x CFWU-lite (5 reps of each)

Time - 25:23.8
Rounds breakdown - 7:32.7 / 8:39.9 / 9:11.2

Targeted 2:15 for the row on first two rounds. Beat that with some margin. Then 2:10 on the last round. Burpees...I hate Bupees. Thought I was going to die. Had to break them down into sets. Rnd 1 - 10,6,5 Rnd 2 -4,4,4,4,5 Rnd 3 - 5,4,4,5,3. The runs...well I just tried to survive. They were hell after the burpees. Last 100m on the last round was all dry heaves. Thanks Pukie.


This was a sick and twisted WOD!!!!

Hope everyone is holding together okay. Lots of good work! Seems, at least for now, that minor medical and injury problems are an issue for our little group. Was having one with my acid reflux meds, but I think I found a temp fix until I get in to see the doc.

John and Delita,

Good to see some more seasoned CF postings. John, get some on those pull-ups! You're making me feel wimpy.

Delita, those are some impressive numbers on your CF Total. I know lots of young guys who can't do what you did. I just got my wife (not quite 50 yet) started on some Starting Strength work and on some rowing (interval training). I'll tell her about your numbers.

Was just looking at the posts for today's WOD. We hold our own compared to everyone else. Terry, you kicked posterior.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
Thanks Charlie, I definitely agree about hating burpees. I think this was the first time I was able to do that many unbroken, but only the first round, 2nd and 3rd round did 15, came up for air and did another 6.

Delita, welcome. I have seen some of your posts in other threads. Way to stick with it and your numbers for CFT are impressive. My wife (under 50) started CF a month ago, we go to the affiliate together and take our 17 yr old daughter, they both think I am obsessed, I just tell them I am dedicated :) she has seen some gains but her consistency is a little weak.

Welcome John, nice to see other over 50yers posting
