Pat - Sorry to hear about your sister. She'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

4/27 - Don't remember the workout other than I didn't have a lot of energy and it kicked my butt. Slept 12 hours that night. Very tough work week.

4/28 - 24 mile bicycle ride. Legs were really flat on the hills. Slept another 12 hours

4/29-30 - Rest days

5/1 - Run 1 mile and 50 double unders. 16:24 (mile time was 6:42).

Managed one string of 4 DUs consecutively, one or two strings of 3, and 4 or 5 "series" of two. Felt much better; the rest did me a lot of good.

5/2 - Single unders for 15 minutes
Neck was so stiff from yesterday's physical therapy that everything else hurt. The single unders worked since I didn't have to move my head. :rofl:

tonite lots of leg streching then pistols and push ups

wod was total of bench press 5-4-3-2-1 but only total up one weight for each rep 5@135-4@145-3@155-2@165-1@185 = 785 lbs total

felt like i could have gone heavier throughout but was still happy since my shoulder did not cause any real issues tonite.

Bill H - Nice work on the squats and swings. Even the 1.5 pood KB thrashes me so I know what the bigger one would do.

Pat - Great news on your sister-in-law and nice workout time.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
5/4 WOD

Press 3-3-3-3-3
Very satisfied that I gave 100% effort here. (Just noticed 120# is my 3-rep PR.)

In 10 Minutes complete:
1,000 M Row
As many Wallballs (20#/14#) as possible in the remaining time.
80 wall balls.

Went easy on the row, figuring I would make it up by resting less on the wall balls. Row was a little over 4:00. Took a while to get a groove on the wall balls, and even when I felt like I had them, I could not string more than 5 together at a time. Pleased with my score, however, as I was able to keep my frequent rest periods short.
