21-15-9 reps for time of:
135 pound Clean
GHD sit-up

9:36 (No GHD so used incline situp board)

Really felt this in my quads so very happy. Finally getting the feeling on these that they are jumping and shrug movements rather than using arms. The lactic acid build up in my quads let me know I'm on the right track.

Sprint workout: Warmed up with mile run progressively going faster. 10 1 minute sprints at 13mph on treadmill with 1:30 min. rest in between sprints.

First time working on muscle ups, but no rings so had to use pull up bars. Did not get one. I'm determined to learn this move. Goal: Be able to do 1, and then 10 consecutive muscle ups within the next month

this is going to be a great end of the year. The Dead on the stero, a couple of wobbly pops, starting to build xmas eve dinner (bbq'd ribs and smoked turkey) and feeling great about life.

thank you all for the inspiration for keeping on this journey. it blows me away with the work you all are putting out.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great to read everyone's progress here. Crossfit has been a great addition to my life. Enjoying every WOD and making progress. Actually just happy to be able to keep doing it.

Today was my first Fran. Scaled back to 75# thruster as the emphasis is on speed with this WOD. Finished in 6:46

Merry Christmas everyone. See you Monday

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Had no time for a workout before leaving for in-laws today so squeezed in a quick 20 pull ups and 100 pushups at home.

My first year of cross fit has been great. The people doing it are some of the best athletes I've known, yet humble and incredibly helpful. I appreciate it.

Enjoy the holiday folks!
