John B., Nice work in 11.3!
Jim Colby-Great to have kids following in "Good Footsteps" Congrats!

I had some dumb luck that put me out of the Games on Thursday! Went in early and practiced one more time working up to the 135# weight (a 25#PR) for me!
Managed 3rnds toward the end and decided I would take Friday as a rest day and do the WOD on Saturday---bla-bla-bla! Thursday afternoon, went to pulling my Grandson's Mini bike out of the trailer, tripped over the rear door/ramp cable and went *** over tea kettle and broke my fall with my hand that severely strained (or minor fractured) my wrist!--Iced/heat/iced and went in on Saturday to try to get at least a try?--No way, couldn't rack even 65lbs.

Oh well, will take a little time off and let it heal up, doing what I can, (wearing a wrist brace) ride the road bike and lots of sit ups :evilsmile

[B]JB[/B] That's fantastic on the week 3 WOD!
[B]Wilfredo[/B] Hang in there!
[B]Deb[/B] You're killing me with the 110# easy comment. :rofl:

I managed my 1 power clean to full squat but couldn't get the jerk. I ended up cleaning 110# a total of 5 times in the 5 minutes but had been so focused on nabbing that 1 clean that I didn't think and condition myself mentally enough to go full bore for the jerk.

Lesson learned? Always visualize the next step, no matter what you think you might do, be prepared for what you will do :)

I'm still on the board as of yesterday I was second to last out of four pages, but hey, when we started this journey there were 10 pages in my age bracket.

Press 2x10
60# shoulda, coulda gone 5# heavier.

Hey now....mind over matter.

What's your nutrition looking like? For me, that is ALWAYS the missing link.

4/7 Workout

Ever since open WOD 3 was posted on Tuesday, I was concerned about even achieving one rep of a 165# C&J. I had power cleaned 165# once or twice and had power cleaned 170# once before. I had a front squat of at least 165, but I have never jerked that much weight over my head, nor had I tied all the moves together at 165#. I decided to see what my one rep split jerk was; more precisely, could I jerk 165# over my head. I did this at the Santa Barbara Athletic Club, who frowns on dropping weights, so I decided not to try a 165 pound clean and jerk.) To my surprise, I got three consecutive jerks at 165, two consecutive at 170 pounds, but failed at 185. I ended with one rep at 180.

4/9 Open WOD 3 (at Crossfit Ventura)

I am still thrilled with my performance. I had never in my 48 years of life been able to lift more than my bodyweight from the floor to over my head. When WOD 3 was posted last Tuesday, I about crapped. I am enjoying participating in the Open so much, and even though I am smack in the middle of the pack, I wanted to finish. WOD 3 looked like it had DNF written all over it for me. BUT, I not only PR'd by putting 5# over my bodyweight overhead for the first time in my life yesterday, I did it four times in 5 minutes, accompanied by the cheering and support of so many of my friends at CrossFit Pacific Coast and CrossFit Ventura. This will be my defining memory from the 2011 Crossfit Games.

4/10 workout

Wanted to take it easy because WOD 3 really gassed me. I ended up doing 1/2 Murph, Cindy-style, at SBAC, running on a treadmill at 1 percent incline. (Yes, my sense of “taking it easy” is a little warped, I guess.)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Nice work, [B]Claw!![/B] My nutrition is pretty good. I just have to get back in the swing of things...think positive!:)

[B]4_11_11 Monday[/B]

[B]Power Clean[/B]
25kg/3 (2)
35kg/3 (2)
40kg/2 (4)
35kg/2 (2) I took this down myself, to practice my catch. At the lighter weight I dont sit and catch!!

40kg/2 (2)
43kg/2 (3)
45kg (5)
47kg (5)
The catches from 45+ were all pretty decent, all I heard was good and i was jumping under the bar so it landed on my delts. I think part of my catch problem is sometimes Ive got too tight a grip on the bar. I had a miss in there, where I landed with my feet almost on top of each other, ridiculously narrow, could only laugh.

45kg/3 (2)
53kg/2 (6)
Kind of any easy night.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Wow..All of you are so impressive, and inspiring. I can't wait to get back to the box, start working seriously on everything, one step at a time. Since I'm gimpy right now was thinking of going to the gym and just doing upper body, in particular shoulders. Got to them stronger. Working on beginner head stand. I'm serious wearing a helmet.
