7/24 WOD
Kiwi's Endurance Seminar

4 x 1 mile @ 80%
1 lap walk/job cool down in between
My target 80% mile was 8:30 per Kiwi's calculation

7:59 [url][/url]
8:02 [url][/url]
8:00 [url][/url]
3:35 (first lap at mile pace of 2:00 per lap, second lap full out 1:35) [url][/url]

The 8:00 per mile pace was quite sustainable. Had a cup of coffee before WOD this morning, I wonder if that had something to do with it. First WOD since last Thursday, glad to be back and ready for the Whole Life Challenge.

Claw, Nice runs!!

50 Mountain Climbers
12 OHS 115/75#
50 Mountain Climbers
9 OHS 115/75#
50 Mountain Climbers


[I]The 175# Back Squats went well until the last few. my lower right back started hurting. Tried to do 85# OHS, but my back hurt WAY too much. dropped down to 65# & finished the WOD. The other problem was that i mis counted sice the Mountain Climbers were 4 count so I ended up doing 25 per set! :shrug:
Spent the shower time doing hot and colds. Also hit the pool this evening. My back feels a little better.[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
7/25 WOD (make up for last Saturday)

Whole Life Challenge Base WOD
2 Laps of long loop (about 2/3 mile)
30 Pull Ups
Max Burpees

Paced run pretty well, thanks to all the running at Kiwi's endurance seminar. Wanted to do 30 pull ups straight through but went 15-9-3-3. Burpees broken up only slightly at 10's so I could mark the whiteboard to keep count. I was halfway up my 61st burpee when time was up, so if I had just kept count in my head, I would have had 61 (although I would not have known if it was 51, 61, or 71!) :rofl:

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

got to meet a past world champion single and double buck saw logger. he gave my self and another chap from the gym some good pointers as next weekend we are competing in loggers sports. we have signed up for the double buck saw which is a saw about 7' long and has 2" teeth on it. it is susposed to take us about 25 seconds to get through a 22" fir log. we took 4 breaks on the first 30" log we tried.

considering neither one of of have ever cut with one of these saws before it should be interesting.:D

i am also registered for the axe throw and chockersman race.

then at the gym

7 minute amrap

7 30lb dbell with fat grip incline row left side
7 30lb dbell with fat grip incline bench press left side
7 30lb dbell with fat grip incline row right side
7 30lb dbell with fat grip incline bench press right side

total of 178 reps

then went out for an 1 1/2 mountain bike ride with 11 other cranky old men. i totaly forgot as this was my second ride in 26 months how much fun it was. woke up this morning with no more than usual pain in my left shoulder so i guess that means it is time to get back on to the bike.

7/26 WOD

Kiwi's Endurance Seminar
10 stadiums (singles)
400 M recovery jog
7 stadiums (doubles)
1 stadium (both feet jump every other step)
800 M recovery jog

Was able to catch my breath at the top long enough to savor the view over the ocean for a moment or two between stadiums. Could not enjoy the view going down, too unsteady to risk a tumble down the concrete.

Here is a view from the top that I took last year (WFS): [url][/url]
Here is a view from the bottom (WFS): [url][/url]

Great shots, Claw.

5X5 bench. Failed on last two reps of 265.


1 snatch per minute for 20 minutes. Any missed snatch results in 1K row.
Scale: power snatch vs. Squat snatch.
