Diane, great looking car.

Terry that was an awesome performance in the "Filthy Fifty"

I did the same in a Brand X pattern. I did 35 repeats for ea. Did the sit ups on the GH stand, step ups in lieu of jumps, and singles instead of double unders. This took 20:15. Yes the burpees are just so though! I may try the RX next time. I did the wall balls in my globo gym. Used a 20 lb ball. I was careful not to crack the sheetrock wall.

Hey all,

Sorry I haven't been very good about getting here on the the boards to see what's been going on......out of town and no PC access to speak of.
090713 thru 090718 (Monday through Saturday):

[/B][/I]Spent this entire week up in Redding helping our daughter move out of her old apartment and in to her new place.......100 degree-plus heat each day! Not too upset I didn't have any chance to work out. I got more than my fair share of exercise.

[I][B]090719 SUNDAY

REST DAY..........[/B]Ready to get back at it!

Sweet ride Diane!

Great time on the FF Terry.

Pat, solid effort. Scaled reps often makes for a more intense WOD (less resting).

John B, your son sounds like a beast in the making. I'm sure my 14 year old couldn't put that kind of weight overhead.


CFWU x 1 rd of 15

DL 44x5; 114x5; 202x3; 246x3; 266x3; 299x1 (failed reps 2,3):mad: Some days are that way. I'm attributing it to all the kb swings last night on Nate.

"High Rep" 222x12

Met Con:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of Power Clean (3/4 bwt = 114) and C2B pullups

12:15, about a 1:40 improvement from May. My son knocked this out in 9:45 at the same weight. He recently perfected his butterfly kip and literally flies through the pullups.

Today - 07/20/09
6AM group workout on the North Shore

Group was just me, led by Patrick

Bulgarians - 3x10 ea leg

3 rounds:
20 Bench Dips
30 lunge walks

3 rounds
20 push-ups
30 squats

2x400m run

Finished first in everything!

We had interesting conversation about boxing gloves. I'm on a quest for some decent gloves but the ones in the local sporting goods store were crappy and PINK! Call me "old-school", but what self-respecting boxer would wear pink boxing gloves?!? Good grief.

Yesterday, with the thermometer reading 99 degrees I ran two miles on the road in 17:41

Stopped at 2 miles as I sensed my blood was coagulating in my brain from the heat.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Got up at 5am to beat the heat and run a 5k, decided on a new route in the neighborhood instead of the park where I normally run. I think the distance was off on one of the routes, my time was almost 2 minutes longer and I felt like I had run harder and faster, guess I will have to measure it both.

[B]Monday 090720[/B]
Run 5 K

Time 26:45

Almost snorted coffe out my nose when I read your comment about your blood coagulating. :rofl:

CFWUx2 w/assisted dips and pull-ups. Ran 4 mins. On treadmill.

Instead of doing Filthy Fifties I did Terrible Thirties
30 box jumps
30 jumping pull-ups
30 dumbell swings w/35lb. dumbbell
30 walking lunges
30 knees to elbows
30 push press w/45lbs.
30 back extensions
30 thrusters w/30lbs.
30 burpees
30 box jumps
My time: 27:45

Reducing the Filthy Fifties like this turned out to be a better exercise for me I think. I was able to keep my intensity level higher, rather than having to stand around recovering for much of the exercise.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
After just watching a really great program on the History channel about our American astronauts stepping foot on the moon exactly 40 years ago, I realized that as over-50 Crossfitters, we have actual [B]MEMORIES[/B] of one of the greatest achievements of mankind. While our young Crossfit bretheren have many physical advantages over us, we have had the amazing privilege to [B]SEE the Eagle land[/B] and [B]SEE Neil Armstrong[/B] jump down off that ladder and touch the moon's surface. After 40 years, the memory still thrills me.
