[B]Happy Birthday [B]Pat[/B]!![/B]

Had a terrible workout in Patrick's garage this morning. So disgusting, I'm not even going to post it. Must be a poor nutrition-lack of sleep-hangover from the weekend. Gonna have to grit my teeth the next few days to get back on track.

Happy birthday [B]Pat[/B]! Great job on the burpee-pullup workout. And thanks for the encouragement.

Today - 12/01/09

Ran 4-ish miles with big hills
36 min

Pretty cold out but the run felt good after yesterday's debacle.

[B]Charlie[/B] - Are you out there? Hope you are mending.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I am having trouble talking myself into going to CrossFit. Well, maybe not as bad as I think, because I AM going! But it's hard to get back on track!

Today was fun. Alternating with a partner, 20 seconds on, 20 seconds off, we did 8 rounds of:

American KB Swings (35# for me)
Pushups (knees, whew, thank goodness for knees)
Double Unders (I subbed singles x3 but I did work on getting the rope speed higher and I didn't feel like I was going to wet my old lady pants)

My total was 418. :D

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
I had taken 3 rest days because the 400m lunges crippled me for a couple of days, and my back has remained tender.

Today warmed up with 3 rounds of 15 squats, 15 sit-ups, 15 push-ups

Ran 2 miles on the road. Stopped a couple of times to stretch my calves.
Wanted to go 3 miles, but my calf got tighter.

Did 2 rounds of
25 kettlebell swings w/35lb. kettlebell
10 squats with kettlebell

I have not done a pull-up in 3 weeks because the nerve in my arm is still tender. I better get on the bar soon, or I may not be able to get one.
My back seemed to tolerate today's workout well.

Happy Belated Birthday!


Congrats on the run.

Okay, I have finally figured out, by trial and error (mostly error), what I can do for a workout without all the neagtive feed back (aka pain). Started going for walks and discovered they cause little to no discomfort. But still, it's only walking. So yesterday and today, I dug out an old rucksack and loaded it down slightly to a weight of 15 lbs. Walked for about 40 min yeaterday and 70 min today. It's not much, but it's something. Today's walk was fun. I did some cross country travel, including a couple of stream crossings. Also, decided to get strict with the Zone eating. The old belt line has expanded a bit.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Happy Birthday Pat & nice run JSR.

Warmup: row 500 - usual

Overhead squats: 3,3,3,3,3
(lost balance and dropped after one rep at 80, but did three more after. I think I can go heavier, started too light).

For Time:
21 - 15 - 9
wall ball - 16#
kb swings - 16kg
9:10 - OHS apparently affects the pullups - very difficult tonite.

I jumped the new 30" box a few times tonite!

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:58 PM.
