5/23 workout

Night Moves 5k run
23:01

This is a PR by 48 seconds. The Night Moves course is an out and back, uphill all the way out, downhill all the way back except the start line is at the east end of Shoreline Park and the stop line is the west end of Leadbetter Beach, meaning we get to run down the hill between Shoreline and Leadbetter without having to run up it.

I am considering this a rest week, meaning I only did Jackie Monday morning, Night Moves Wednesday evening, then Helen Saturday morning and Murph next Monday. I guess only a Crossfitter would consider that a "rest week."

[QUOTE=Tom Gallagher;1063596]...I have been messing with modified pistols hold on to rings and lean back. I have been doing them on one of those pulley machine things just put the weights up high (stationary). Maybe I'll use the pulleys and and keep dropping weights to get to no assist.[/QUOTE] I've used those machines at my local [URL="http://www.vandaliaohio.org/Parks_Rec.cfm"] Globo [/URL] to do some of the mobility WOD stuff. Always a good way to get "looks" from folks!1 :D

[B]WU:[/B]
10 Min SU/DU practice [URL="http://crossfitbiomechanics.wordpress.com/"] with a silver band[/URL].
PVC Pass throughs

Un mashed the "Mash up". C&Js were tough though I was able to get 4 the first round & 3 the last round! That felt good. I don't do MUs enough!![/I]

My 1st Post:
I'll be 67 in September and started CrossFit 10 weeks ago, here in Flagler Beach, FL.
I got fired up and emailed the local Box owner. I listed all my "challenges" (shoulder replacement, hip replacement, bone-on-bone knee, triple bypass open heart surgery, joint arthritis, etc.) and asked, "Do you think CrossFit would be OK for me?" Her answer was, "I don't know... What do YOU think?"

I went for my orientation and had no shoulder strength or mobility. I could deadlift 95 lbs. I could hardly do an air squat. It was very humbling.

In 10 weeks of great coaching and ramping, I've greatly improved my shoulder strength and mobility, am doing light overhead squats, knocking out pullups and banded ring dips. I've done DL's of 255X3 and 185X5X10 in a WOD.

Who woulda thunk it?

21 45lb jumping lunge
21 30" box jump (completly missed the first one to the point of going a** over tea kettle on the box)

9 40 lb hip extension
