Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff, you mix food and work outs. How do you ever stay focused on the exercise while thinking of food!?!

Yesterday, Grace: 6:38. Power cleans, not squat cleans. It has occurred to me that I needed to work on strict wall balls and see if I can improve on hip flexion. Perhaps, I will be some flexibility for squat cleans again!

8/16 WOD
Kiwi's Running Seminar
Run up Gibralter Road for about 1/2 hour then back down.

Started with 0.6 miles uphill from Sheffield Reservoir parking lot, then short period of stretching. Run took about about 6:45 (I forgot to turn my Garmin off while stretching): [url][/url]

Then uphill for about 22 minutes, then walk/jog back down to Sheffield Reservoir parking lot. Ran uphill 2.12 miles in about 22:30, elevation gain 794 feet. Average uphill grade = 7.1%. Kept at pace of a little over 10:35/mile up this steep stretch. Downhill run took 28 minutes to cover 2.7 miles with 1,050 foot elevation loss. [url][/url]

Stunning views this morning! Very pleased with my pace. Lead the pack for while, finally fell behind the fast breakaway group. Definitely in top third. Pier to Peak will be hard, no doubt about that, but this run gave me a lot of confidence in my ability to complete it within my goal of 2:45.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
last nite a rousing 18 holes of frisbee golf....we spent over an hour looking in the slash under the hydro lines for lost frisbees


teams of 3 10,000 m. row each switching after 250m. we were team old grumpy ones me 51, suzanne 52 and brad 55. we came in top 1/4 of the pack for the day. and who says old people don't rock!!!


pat and william the bbqing i do for all the events we are involved with keeps us in bbq pork and brisket all summer long so i don't even really think about it all that much. and it is cooking for the masses. i am able to put it on the webber bullet smoker and pretty much forget about it for 9-12 hours that is why i like doing the large cuts of meat.

now when it is for a close group of friends that is a different story. i babysit the smokers every hour, mop and move the meat around. bbq is just starting to catch on here and the masses are not really exposed to bbq all that much yet so i can get away with the "put it on and forget it style for them.":evilsmile

alden the scary thing with these events is the 45-55 year catagories are the biggest ones and there are some fit fast guys that have been racing for years. i am sure glad i am just the organizer/cook and not actually having to race the darn things.:rofl:
