[quote=Elizabeth Terris;449534]Nice Rowing Helen! I had a knee problem for a while (which feels like it is coming back) and I had to do rowing Helen to avoid the runs. OH MY POSTERIOR CHAIN! There was no rest for it with Rowing Helen.

Great job on the pull ups and Hamstring rehab![/quote]

Thank you, Elizabeth! Great to hear from you. Hope all is settling down and you are able to get some rest!

I think the rowing is really helping with the hammies. I don't feel it much "back there" when I'm rowing, but the mild soreness seems to lessen exponentially each time I row.

The rowing has turned out to be probably more fun for me than anything else I've ever done. It just feels so natural. Wish we had a club or institution around here with a masters' rowing program...........

Hi Stephen,

I'm finally catching up on visiting everyone's logs. What did I miss???

1. Love your new avatar!

2. Did you just have an anniversary? Congratulations!

3. Your workouts are killing me!

4. Nag time: When are you going to get off weight watchers and get a long term plan going? You MUST read "The Paleo Diet." Read it with the idea that you will get good basic ground floor advice on what your diet should be based on. Don't read it thinking that you have to do everything they say to do..not realistic for most of us. I'm so certain that when you read it, you will know what you need to be eating...you'll get off ww...and you'll be able to eat a lot of food, and you'll probably lose weight.

:):):)

[I]HAMMY REHAB DAY #7. [/I][/B][I]Had an early WO day so I could take my honey to her follow-up DR. appt. for her broken shoulder. Not used to working out so dog gone early..........[B]Blech!!!!![/B]

[/B]
[B]Done as "Rowing Helen"

[B]12 Jumping Pull-ups
Time: 16:46. [/B]Included going up/down stairs from rower to pull-up station and having to wait once (est 1 min or so) for pull-up bar in use at the time.

2:05

[/B][B]
Note:[/B] This was first "Helen" for me. The third round had me seeing "green spots" in front of my eyes and hoping I didn't fall down the stairs before I could walk down to the other equipment!! Helen is a bad girl!!!! (But I love her!!).

[B]Other Stuff:
Jump Rope/Double Under Practice. [/B]Approx. 15:00. [B]Got 4 DUs!! Woo-hoo! [/B](Not consecutive....), but I didn't trip myself and fall on my "hee-haw" either!! :rofl::D

[B]Hamstring Rehab/Squat Therapy: [/B]Used Dynamax ball for depth and worked really hard to keep weight over my heels, maintain lumbar curve, and keep tight core/activated glutes.
[B]10 X 10. [/B]Attempted to lift toes off ground on each rep. Even fell back onto DMax ball a couple of times, so this must be working!!! Felt good and strong!



[/I][/QUOTE]

Way to go with the Rowing Helen. She ain't so bad:rolleyes:

Also, great work on those DU's........:highfive: the more you practice the better....it is a difficult maneuver, but once you get the rythm of the jump and the rope, you are FREEE!!!!

Nancy,

Didn't miss too much here. You're the ones who had all the excitement! Glad all is OK! How are your guys' lungs? Hopefully not too much, if any smoke still in the air - - Yuk!

[quote=Nancy Cohen;449611]1. Love your new avatar![/quote]

Thanks! Got tired of looking at the other one......:D

[quote=Nancy Cohen;449611]2. Did you just have an anniversary? Congratulations![/quote]
Yes, thanks!! #35! :pepper: I am soooooo blessed - - got the greatest sweetheart on earth!!

[quote=Nancy Cohen;449611]3. Your workouts are killing me! [/quote]

You're a kick!! I guess you'd have to say I'm an example of an old guy without common sense when it comes to WOs (LOL!!). At least Chery (my wife) thinks so........:D

Actually, WW has changed a lot of their approach to weight loss and nutrition. I don't know how familiar you are with their current program, but I'm doing what they call "Core," where you have certain foods that are basically "free" in terms of points - - lean meats, veggies, fruits (to some extent), etc. I've lost 20 pounds as of today over 11 weeks - - Woo Hoo!! I just have to remember to add more protein and perhaps a little more carbohydrate.

Oh.....and here's a shocker.......Used Dr. Sear's (Zone) computations to get a guesstimation of my body fat; according to the formula, I am at - - get this - - 28.5% BF, WITH the weight loss. BLech!!!!!! Very disappointing to say the least and all the more to push me forward down the fitness and nutrition path.

You are right tho - - I do need to read up on Paleo and see how I can incorporate it into my nutrition.

Keith,

Thank you! [I][B]([/B][B]She ain't so bad:rolleyes:).....[/B][/I]Whoa.......Funny how we get a twisted sense of sadism/masochism doing CF.........That was one of the hardest WOs yet for me, but it [I][B]was[/B][/I] fun.

As for the DUs, at least I didn't trip myself and fall on my hiney :rofl:.

[B][U]Tuesday, 11/18/08[/U]:[/B]

[I][B]Note: [/B][/I]Weight today was 202.5. Means I've lost just over 20# in these 11 weeks!! [B][I]Woo Hoo!!![/I]
[/B]
[I][B]HAMSTRING REHAB DAY #8.

Warm-up:
Stationary Cycling
[/B]10:00 / L3 / 100 RPM / 2.7 mi / HR 100.
[B]Shoulder Pass Thrus -[/B] overhead and side to side[B]
Planks: 1 @ 3:08 [/B](on elbows).
I understand I may have been doing these incorrectly. I've been using push-ups position, but understand the norm is to place one's forearms on the ground and lean on the elbows.

[B]WOD: Push Jerk 1,1,1,1,1,1,1.
[/B]R/Shoulder was not happy with me today -- any OH movement was a bit painful, so substituted my WO.

[B]WOD: "Cindy"
AMRAP in 20:00.
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups [/B](unbroken first 7 rounds)
[B]15 Squats [/B](unbroken first 4 rounds)
[B]Got 14 rounds + 5 pull-ups and 9 push-ups.
[/B]Pull-ups were mixed - approx. 1/3 regular and 2/3 jumping, with both OH and UH grips. Got 5 regulars in a row twice!! (not dead hang, but close to full depth).

Last Cindy was fully scaled: 10/17/2008
3 jumping pull-ups
4 push-ups
7 squats.
Got 21 rounds + 7 pull-ups (20:00).

[B]Note:[/B] Felt really tired after the WOD and though I started to work on squat form (barefoot), I did not feel comfortable. Decided to be happy and call it a day!

[/I]

You're welcome, Chuck. Gonna take a week off next week (Thanksgiving) to rest up. It'll do the hammies, knee, and shoulder some good.

[U][B]P.M. Tuesday, 11/18/08:[/B][/U]
