Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I guess I haven't been posting here, but I've been working out! :D Not today though. My body is tired. I'm trying to figure out where to fit more running in as well. I've been doing some most weeks ONCE a week, but I'd like a bit more. But my workouts are early in the mornings, and I don't have a lot left over after work. Ho hum.

I have been Paleo for five days. So far, so good, though I am a bit tired after workouts. Mentally I am feeling fantastic!

Going to a POSE running clinic on Saturday. Should be interesting.

Hi gang, I'm taking a short vacation here in Venice Beach. Eating at restaurants, playing with the grandsons, and just doing things different than usual. I could get to like this. Had a great Paleo breakfast yesterday: pan fried grouper and vinigarette salade. The family meals with cousins or my daughter and her family are not so Paleo.

Enjoy the workouts.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Just wanted to post a brief note to acknowledge that today was the beginning of my third year doing Crossfit. I wish I could boast of magnificent gains in strengths over the past year, but I cannot. My diet has been off course for the past several months, and I my motivation has waned at times. I still love it. I have learned that I have to allow a little more rest and recovery. I have also learned that at 53 years old it is probably not realistic to think that I am going to make big gains in strength. I know my met-cons could improve considerably if I ate better, but I really enjoy the ice cream, the pasta, the beer, and the fact that doing Crossfit allows me to indulge pretty much as I please and still maintain a weight I can live with (190lbs). Two years ago when I started I was terrified of lifting 50 pounds over head because I have some significant scoliosis and I was weak. Now I regularly throw over 100 pounds over head, and have deadlifted a max rep of 305 with no back issues. Of course I have been very diligent about learning to do these lifts properly. I have been doing Crossfit by myself all this time, which is a big drag. Anyway this is a note to say thanks to everyone that posts here. You are my workout partners, and you keep me motivated.

Saw that you got a little running in today.
I second your comment about Terry being a favorite for the Senior Crossfit Games. I wish I could be there to see him win.
