Tim - Understand about being challenged by SWMBO. When I met Jan, one of our first dates was a hike. As I chased her up Little Devil Stairs in the Blue Ridge (not very successfully), I realized I either needed to work out more often or find someone else to date.

Jack - Get better. Agree with Pat; rest is the best choice to beat the bug.

Claw - Good luck on the redo!

Pat - Every time I think I'm too old or too injured to improve, I read your posts. I like you proving me wrong!

Bill - Nice work on the total. Glad the only thing you broke when you lost your balance was a water bottle, sentimental value or not ....

Helen - Nice work on the WODs. I didn't do any of them as Rxed; good on you!.

Wish we had the "snow problem" here. We encountered temps in the high 40s in the high country. Made for snowcrete in the mornings and slush in the afternoons on the slopes.

3/21/2012 Skiing at Breckenridge. 29K feet of vertical.

3/22/2012 Skiing at Vail. 25k feet of vertical. 3 sets of 35# KB swingsX 20 reps and pushups X 20 reps (not for time).

3/23/2012 KB snatch and Pull-ups

Warmup: Rw 500m; 100 single unders; double under practice; Abmat sit-upsX30; shoulder press 45X10, 75/95/110X5, 75X10

Workout: 5 RFT
25# KB snatch, left armX10
25# KB snatch, right armX10

Cashout: Rope climb practice. Note to self. Rope climb practice after 50 pull-ups isn't a great idea. ;-)

Great Job everyone.

Pat- words of wisdom :thanx:.....I will be working at a different speed today. 12.5 at high noon.

Feel pretty good but just looking to get on the board and complete all workout as Rxd.

Never done this before but I think it will be very similr to Fran which is 90 reps total... my best time ever is 6:55....but that is not chest to bar and not 100lbs thrusters. I am not real thrilled at the prospect on the reps going up instead of down.:yikes:

Really had alot of fun doing the Open this year. Congrats to everyone who competed.

3/24 WOD

CrossFit Open WOD 12.5 (Second try)
AMRAP 7 Minutes
3 Thrusters (100#/65#)
3 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
6 Thrusters (100#/65#)
6 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
9 Thrusters
9 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
And onward for the whole 7 minutes.

70 (Four rounds plus 10 thrusters).
Glad I redid it. Five more reps than yesterday. Told myself and my counter, do NOT let me rest with my hands on my knees. Cut rest time down, even as I took more frequent rests. Quick intense bursts of a few reps, quick rest, rinse, repeat. Very pleased.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Claw- ya beat me by 2. I got 68 on12.5.

Felt pretty good before and suprisingly after. Felt like I rested too much.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers...I think I'm on the mend.

Great job everybody!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice work everyone on 12.5 (congrats to anyone doing it over and gaining ground!

Jack--Way to go!--glad that crud didn't keep you from doing 12.5

My wife asked me last night what her WOD was for this morning and I with a sneaky grin said we were going to "Tabata this" (she asked what the heck that was so I explained-the program to her and scaled her work to 4rnds
Tabata, row, air squat, pull-up, pushup, situps

She did great for her second week of CF and having never worked out before!
I was feeling guilty just watching so I agreed to do the whole 8rds RX after her

Went to the box tonight at 7pm and redid 12.5 and only go 60 reps (just didn't have the legs)
Actually felt I did much better on the thrusters as my form was much better!

Tomorrow is Rest day!!

Nice job everyone. I got 53 on 12.5. The open was a humbling experience for me but a good one. More excited than ever to continue Xfit and improve!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
well..12.5 definitely brought me back to earth. Never did C2B and I was out of town all week so could not really practice...came in to the box this morning and squeezed out "17"..I had the height but not the flexibility so definitely have my homework assignment.

Overall, the Open was an awesome experience. I almost did not was a very last minute thing and very glad I did..I learned a lot about myself and loved the energy that everyone puts into these WODS.

Crossfit is so varied and there are so many skills it really takes time and work and its awesome to see the types of numbers people my age put give me hope and inspiration to carry on.

So tomorrow is a new day, bring it on!
