Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
William H. And everyone on the board,

Thanks for the encouraging words!:thanx: JB is amazing!! his WU's tire me out to read them! it has been a tough road back after being hurt for the last couple of years! The blessing in disguise is I have had to train using really light weight and concentrating on (listening to my coaches) DUH! My wrist is about 90% and shoulder is pretty much healed (I am leaving the technical MTBing and and aggressive dirt bike riding to the young-ins). My two Grandkids are my wrassling partners and they have unlimited cardio endurance:rofl::yikes:

Now back to working on those pesky Du's and muscle ups (sure to show up in the next three weeks!

Everyone enjoy the ride! :pepper:

3/16 Saturday workout at Bacara.
Wasn’t sure what I wanted to do when I got to the gym, which is very unusual for me. I was feeling pretty beat up from 13.2, so I wanted to avoid taxing the pushing muscles or my calves. Decided on four sets of three weighted pullups and pistols with 90 seconds rest.

Weighted pullups: 25, 35 (did not fully get chin over bar), 30, 30
Pistols: Reliant on bands.

I next considered doing a broomstick mile on the treadmill, and then changed my mid to do 800M splits on the treadmill. As I started my first one, my iPad fell off the treadmill between my feet and I nearly had a disastrous dismount. Decided that was a message and ended up fooling around with the fitness testing function on the stair master. Ended up telling it I was a 20-year-old man and did a 14 minute walking test at a 13.5 minute mile pace with graduated inclines. My heart rate never got above about 125 beats per minute, the machine told me I was “Superior” and I decided to leave it at that.

3/17 Sunday workout
Hilly 2.7 mile run through the neighborhood; up Valerio, then through Elings Park, then up Portosuelo, then home. Completed the run at about a 9:50 per mile pace.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
3/19 WOD

Thrusters 95/65

PR by 55 seconds. A little janky on the reps, if I am honest with myself. First set of thrusters went 13 straight, then everything devolved to sets of 5, 4, 3, and 2. Kept my sets and my rests really short.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice Work out there everyone! Jim C. great Fran time!!

As for me I took Saturday off completely (felt really good) head started filling with Sn$#T on Sunday so I decided to go for a run (slow) well that turned into first 2miles at 9:15pace and then I decided to quit watching the watch and just run according to how I felt (must have had fast music playing) I stopped at 3.44 miles and looked at the Garmin and found out that I ran the last 2.44 at a 8:04 pace:yikes: My first thought was that is going to hurt!! Monday I went to the box and (coach asked why I ran on a "rest day" and pointed me to the WOD board with a grin--:rofl:


400m sprint
5 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
10 walking lunges/45lb plate

[I]When I returned in everyone was saying (why did you run an extra sprint??) [/I] :run::run: BEATS THE HECK OUT OF ME!--(the old guy can't count and breathe at the same time)-- TIME OF: 16:04

Today I took another rest day- tomorrow will be last WOD before 13.3 gets here! :pepper:

Let's keep kicking till we cant!!
