Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Skied at Vail on Tuesday and Keystone yesterday. Took today off because I woke up with a sore throat and killer headache. Feel a lot better now so will be back on the slopes tomorrow.

Interesting conversation about "fuel" for endurance events. There is a fellow named Phil Maffetone who writes a lot about training your body to burn fat for fuel. His premise is that we all have a lot more energy available stored as fat than we do glycogen. A serious triathlete I know told me that about half the folks in his triathlon club in Calgary are proponents of Maffetone's approach and the other half think it is witchcraft. :rofl: [url][/url] (WFS) After reading his material and other writings about eating a lower carb diet, I've started eating that way and have noticed I don't bonk anymore on long bicycle rides. (and I dropped about 10 pounds and 3" off my waist)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hey Gents- Great work as usual. Have not been able to post for the past week of so due to "life events". My father-in-law passed last week, he made it to 91 so a good life for him although his body has been failing him the past few years. Mind Strong. My wife is managing, she was at his side with her 7 other brother/sisters and grandkids. So he did not die alone which he feared. Also been very busy working with my brothers and sister moving my mom and her horsed about 150 miles north of me. I've missed a week+ of X-Fit, but have had tons of functional movement!!
