Walked 1 mile on the dreadmill, increasing elevation every .1 mile.
Did 2 wall ball shots and 2 burpees.
WBS are really hard after walking a mile b/c my legs got tight.
Did 20 light weight lat pulldowns all the way to my lap (muscle up progression work).
Held a goblet squat.
Walked up the stairs from the gym to my 8th floor condo.
Finger feels okay today, doesn't hurt to type.

1.5 hours coaching basketball. I threw approximately 200 passes in this time and rebounded approximately 200 shots. I have noticed that I'm really moving around on the court better after 5 practices. These kids are either going to keep me young or kill me!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
jt...take the first option....keeping you young cause you die when you get old....

saw the surgeon shoulder is confirmed to be a mess....she showed me the 2010 xrays vs the 2015 xrays and I could even see the is just going to keep on grinding away on itself :(

on the upside she said the work I am doing at the gym is not going to hurt it and if anything is going to make it last a bit longer than if I had done nothing :pepper::pepper: soooooooo game on!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Committing to a meet sets all kinds of wheels in progress. There's nothing like circling a date on the calendar!

Saturday March 21, 2015
Walked a mile around the farm. Raked stones onto the driveway for half an hour (this was brutal). Played catch for a while (this was fun).
Spending the day with Kendrick Ferris tomorrow.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Spent the day lifting with Kendrick Farris.

Walked to CTown, did 5 rounds of (1 pull up, 1 T2B, 1 WBS, 1 burpee).
This gassed me. Then did empty bar drills practicing what we worked on sunday. Walked home.

Walked 2.0 miles on the treadmill watching a spring training game on the TV. It was 22F outside...
.5 at 2.0
.5 at 2.1
.5 at 2.2
.5 at 2.3 (this is moving right along for me these days). Neither leg fell asleep while walking so that is very positive.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Cliff - sorry about the shoulder. Really glad CF is not making things worse!!

Back from celebrating another trip around the sun (And had a Guinness cake with Bailey's frosting on it! :D), traveling, and going to my wife's Aunt's Funeral.

100+ SUs
SU & DU practice

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
@Cliff - Sorry about the shoulder and as Bill said, glad you can keep working out.

WU: Functional fitness. 2 hours of pulling myrtle spurge on the property.
100 step ups (18" bench) 5:00
Row 1km easy

WU: Functional fitness. Pulling more myrtle spurge. Learned the hard way that neither RoundUp nor Weed B Gone Max is completely effective against the stuff. The only 100% effective option is to pull the plant out of the ground, ensuring the roots are completely out. I have thousands of partially dead plants with flowers coming up through the center. :ranting2: I figure I have a couple more weeks of "functional fitness" activities before I have eliminated all these rascals.
Various shoulder rehab activities. Some lifting with my good arm.
Bike trainer intervals 6:00 warmup; 7 sets of intervals 1:00 on/ 2:00 recovery; 3:00 cool down

Had an ortho appointment on Monday. Luckily the shoulder is slowly recovering; doctor assessed the injury as a torn rotator cuff and biceps tendon. He recommended another month of rest/ shoulder rehab exercises before either resuming normal activities or coming in to evaluate surgical options.
