Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
1st WOD of the year-FRAN: 6:50 (PR). (Previous PR was 9:08)

Haven't posted in a while as I've dropped down in weight on all movements and really working on form. Trying to remove ego from the equation. Its helping a lot. Ex.: My 1 rep PR on dead lifts was 275 and I always hurt myself doing that. Yesterday did 5 sets of 5 at 265 lbs with relative ease. I haven't had a sudden surge in strength. Rather, form is king! My guess is that as my form improves, I'll be able to go up in weight and then have strength gains. I had it backwards until now.

It's been very "Seattle" like weather here in the south all weekend and continues today. Usually I take the weekend as rest but I got so stir crazy yesterday I went to the box. Very rarely do I workout with the more elite athletes in our box but yesterday I sucked it up and by the end of the WOD it was clear that everyone is just trying to better. It was great!

[B]1-8 "White" Hero WOD[/B]
3 rope climbs (or 15 towel pullups, I did.)
10 T2B
21 walking lunges with 25# plate overhead
400m run
5 rounds for time 36:22

[B]1-9 Grace[/B]
30 reps clean and jerk (85# for me)

I've tightened up my eats since the first of the year because I'm going on a cruise with some friends in April. Strict Paleo with no "Paleo treats" for the first 30 days. Also gave up bacon until the first day of the cruise. I replaced the bacon fat with coconut milk and so far I'm rocking right along!

1/7 WOD

Group "flight simulator"...5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45-50 and back down of unbroken du's. Penalty of 5 burpees for each miss, then wait for partners to do their double unders (and burpees where needed).

DNF. Worked with Molly and Augie.

Warm up was take 10 minutes to find max double unders, and I got 41 and then 44! 40+ is a multi-year Elite Goal! :pepper:

I hung up on round of 15 and then round of 30, where I stayed until the end of the hour. (Last round I went for max and got 41 again.) I don't know how many burpees I did, but it was a lot. Since I did relatively few double unders, I threw myself into the burpees.
