13 Rds +5+5
[I]I was VERY happy with this effort.
This is less than my last Cindy and I could do more, but after a few rounds I rested some before each set of pullups - to meet my goal of doing all good pullups. It did seem easier.
I guess the Monday pullup challenge is doing something after all. [/I]

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Yesterday I ran 6 x 400m with 3-4 minute rest between each 400.
My times: 2:30, 2:07, 1:55, 1:48, 1:47, 1:44
I did a little stretching and a few squats before running the first 400. I was very stiff and just could not go. Did stretching between each 400, and found that I was a little more flexible and elastic with each run. I really wanted to run another 400m after the 1:44, but Turkey dinner was waiting and the family would have been upset if I held up the meal.

Today I did 400m walking lunges
My time: 19:10
I had never completed 400m walking lunges before.

I did 55 push-ups also

Ho, man. What have I been missing? Big blow up with CFHQ, Robb Wolf etal. Interesting divergence.

[B]John W.[/B] - Good luck with the (hip?) surgery.

[B]Jay[/B]: Happy Birthday. 61! Now I have something to look forward to.

[B]Terry[/B]...saggy? Is that a scientific term? Really, I can't imagine how else to apply it vis-a-vis diet.

Last workout was 11-24-09 wherein this occured:
10-10-20 walking lunges
5-5-5 dips
5-10-15 BW squats
10-15-20 #45 press
10-10-10 situps
5-5-5 DH pullups
5-5-10 #50 KB swings
10-10-10 ring pushups
500m C2 1:56.6 (yet another [B][COLOR="Red"]PR[/COLOR][/B]...finally getting the row to extend that to greater distances)

WOD: Deads
#275x5 This last set was worrisome. After each effort I became extremely light headed and had to take a knee for a few seconds. I read recently that some others of us have experienced the same thing. This, however, was a first for me. Actually carried a vertigo-type of feeling with me into the next day when it began to subside. Thanksgiving trip to Tallahassee forced me to take a few days off. All to the good I suppose.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hahaha, John S.R., "saggy" was my term. It's also know as a drawn/tired or wasting-away look. I get it from too restrictive an eating protocol for too long for my metabolic needs. Terry's found his solution to avoid it, for me I have to lead a moderately "dirty" paleo lifestyle to meet my needs (and live within my $$ means).


[B]Warmup[/B] - same
(40#x1, 50x1, 55x1)x3
(60#x1, 65x1, 70x1)x3

(subbed count of 3 for as many reps as possible : all reps,4,4,5)

*skipped WOD to get on with dinner plans but did 10 SU and 10 supermans


[B]Warmup[/B] - same

([B]PP, PJK, JK[/B]) x 5

[B]WOD[/B] -AMRAP in 5 min
5xlunge (ea leg)
