Run 5 K

I have made HUGE progress this last two weekw with my leg/knee issue thanks to Kelly Starrett. Did a (approx) 3 mile run tonight - ran for 38:41. Not an impressive time, but considering I haven't run in almost a year (except for a couple of rare days and the last two weeks) I am totally satisfied. Read the quote the other day "Today I will do what you won't so that tomorrow I will do what you can't." That quote kept running through my head when I was running.

Who is Kelly Starrett?

Our Saturday workouts are at the park. Um, it's 18 and snowing. :ranting2: I did this in my livingroom in 38:59. I did intervals on the treadmill for the run, and that part took 23:00. Felt good. I am on Day 10 of my Paleo Challenge and my energy levels are beginning to stabilize.

Good work! I have only been CFing for a couple of months and I am truly inspired by your posts and the posts of others over 50. I am relentless in improving my conditioning (and having trouble) giving myself enought rest time!
I had never worked out since playing hockey in Highschool way back in the 60-s Making a firm decision in April to make a dramatic lifestyle change has been really a turning point, FINDING CF has been awesome!!!
At 57 I feel great, looking forward to inspiring others to make a similiar decision! Great to be Here and on the BrandX page

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
good to be back. Since my short vacation to LaLa land, I returned with an infected gum that required some minor surgery. Painkillers and crossfit do not mix.:( Then some kinds intestinal things. Finally today was feeling ok to go back to the gym.

Fran: 21-15-9 rep of 95# thrusters and pull ups. These thrusters were more like push presses for me. Finished in 6:05.

Still in PT so I can bring up the form problems with thrusters in the next session.

I ran across a few more crossfitters at my gym today. Anyone hear of crossfit clubs operating in globos? Two of the three recent acquaintances doing crossfit were level 1 certified and going to ASU for a degree in exericise science.
