Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Saturday 7/13/13 to Friday 7/19/13
Wendler 5/3/1
Month 5/Week 4 (deload week)

Deload happened right during my vacation which was good from a workout/access standpoint, but BAD from a diet standpoint!

Got three rounds of uphill sprints in, at home the morning I left and today after I got back and once on the road, up a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan.

Got some deads in at the Y up there in Wisconsin, did my bench press on a hotel exercise room machine (UGH—again, it was deload week).

[B]Month 6 starts tomorrow![/B]

7/20 workout
Pier to Peak training run from Mission to "No Shooting" sign on Gibralter Road,

4.7 miles in about 55 minutes. Ran with J.j., Laurel, Dave, and Quigley. Props to Kristiana for helping with the car shuttle. That was unpleasant but doable. Pier to Peak will be 2.8 times as unpleasant but still doable. Not sure I need to know anything else.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Great work everyone! It is nice to be back...

Back recovery went slower than expected. Tried to resume normal activities too soon and paid for it with a relapse. Will start back in the gym tomorrow and see how it goes. Spent the last three days on our annual bike ride with friends. Loads of fun and the back held up for the duration of the ride.

7/20 Breckenridge to Vail Pass - 20.8 miles, 1860' of climbing, max grade of 14%, max elevation of 10,612', average pace 7.7 mph
7/21 Vail to No Name Rest Area (Glenwood Canyon) - 59.4 miles, 1327' of climbing (and 3718 ' of downhill), max slope (uphill) of 7%, max elevation 8204' (at the start) down to 5762', average pace 19 mph (with a steady headwind the whole way)
Aspen to Maroon Bells and back - 18.3 miles, 1781' of climbing, max slope of 10%, max elevation of 9695', average pace uphill 7.4 mph (average pace downhill 23.2)
