Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff, great workout and reward.

Last Saturday, I coached a small group of women newcomers when 40+ people showed up with only one trainer. Later the morning did the WOD.
AMRAP 8 minutes: 8 thrusters w. 95 and 8 KB w. 70 .

Today: WOD: 21-18-15-12-9-6-3
Pull ups and push ups. 12:34. My elbow is sore as all get out from the pull ups.

B. EMOM 20 for max double unders

Great WODs guys! (And Helen!! :D) Gonna have to try that Ice Cream WOD!!

400m run
3 rounds of Cindy

500m Row

21-15-9 reps
95# power cleans
Ring Dips

500m Row


[I]"Elizabeth" always scares me, then to add a 500m row each end!!:yikes: I tried being consistent; ~2 min/500m & did the Power cleans and ring rows in subsets of 3. Had a little bit of a log jam in the 15 rep ring dips. Scaling to 95# helped,also I was surprised that I was able to keep the pace of the last row close to the first. The last time I attempted "Elisabeth", I did it in about 12:30, so taking off the rows, I did "Elisabeth" around 9 min! Guess this CrossFit stuff works!! :D[/I]

7/16 WOD
Four rounds for reps:
In 3:00 complete:
60 sec row (cal)
AMRAP Turkish Getups
Rest 2:00
Note: Score equals calories rowed plus TGU. Athlete chooses weight and must alternate L/R

19/6, 19/5, 17/5, 17/4 @ 1.5 pood kettlebell on TGU's.
Had two fail reps on the last set of TGU's, and the dismounts in general were pretty ugly. Interesting in that the left-armed TGU's went up easier than the right-armed ones. Worked out at 11:30 a.m. because I slept through Endurance Class at 6 a.m. (Apparently it is possible to drain an iPhone battery overnight. Good lesson. Just wish I had missed something less important than Crossfit; say, a court appearance or something.)

Michael - :yikes: Had my share of Box Jump injuries! I usually catch a toe & end up clipping my chins! Always try to get "right back in the saddle"!

Claw- Nice AMRAP! TGU's are harder than they have a right to be!!

[I]Clipped 1:12 off my attempt on [URL=""]17 June[/URL]. (Ran the route backwards, which seemed easier!) The weather was hot and Humid. At least I was able to keep running! Wasn't able to do the Back Squat SWOD due to time.:( I wasn't thrilled about this one, but I try to never cherry pick the WODs.[/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
yesterday......spoke to my Dr. about the foot pain. after a review of the current xrays and last winters mri and bone scans with another couple dr's in his office they now do not believe that there are any stress fractures but rather advanced arthritis in the foot and ankle. this office is full of active dr's and staff so i have total confidence in what ever direction we choose i will be in good hands.

so we will see where we go from here but he did say no more running:D which while i know it is good for me i will not miss it in the winter rains.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
7/18 WOD (Endurance)
Heartbreak Hill (WFS): [url][/url]
35 minute AMRAP
Warm up and cool down involved jogging from State Street.

8 rounds (I think).
Tried to keep with the front group, which was much easier since Cody took the morning off. Made up lots of time jogging all the way downhill instead of walking part of it. Felt pretty good although my right knee and hip started hurting a little with all the downhill running. Didn't bring water bottle with me which was just fine. One less thing to carry.
