Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Been in bed sleeping off a stomach flue or bug for 2 days. Longest I've gone without working out in more than 10 years. Also, most sleep ive ever gotten. If possible will do light workout later today and then kick my own butt hard tomorrow.

[B]Deb NICE WORK on your snatches!! I love reading your posts.
Perry I hope you are feeling better.[/B]

I'm currently in a cycle of two-a-days trying to blast more fat off of my lower body. Today ends the second week. I feel better than I expected to feel and I will give it another week and then check stats at the end of week 3.

800m run, rest 2 minutes 3 rds for time:
I really need to work on running and breathing, I suck at it.

12-9-6 Squat clean & jerk, strict pull-ups & strict ring dips (both using band assist)
85# on the 12 then dropped to 75# because I wasn't coming to full hip extension before dropping under.

This is a great WOD programmed by one of our trainers. Guys did 95#.
Run 400m, 10 thrusters 65#, 15 SDHP 65#, 20# front squats 65#, 25 sit-ups, 30 burpees, 25 sit-ups, 20 front squats, 15 SDHP, 10 thrusters, run 400m. 22:26 rx'd. Midway through the WOD I took my shirt off in the box. I've NEVER done that but it's horribly humid and hot down here. :pepper:

Thanks... now that I look back on it, its like big deal, she scooped! haha :o
I dont know why, I've been trying to "sweep the bar" all the way up to my lap; plus Pete told me last nite, you can't double knee bend if your knees are already bent and forward, can you? (he didn't SAY brainiac, but :D)
My coach omg don't know what he'll say when he gets back, but I know he'll have that facepalm look, tell me stop thinking just LISTEN.

I could stand to lose lower body fat, but Im afraid now to lose weight, afraid I'll get weaker!

Lots of great work by everybody!

7/29 WOD

”Tabata This”
Tabata Sets of
Row - 5
Squats - 14
Pull Ups- 5
Push Ups - 9
Sit Ups - 10
1 Minute Rest Between Movements

Never done this one before. Successfully gamed it on squats and push ups by setting and keeping to my target numbers (could maybe have gone to 10 on push ups). Almost kept my numbers on row, only dropped one. Started pull ups at 8 and held though 6 rounds, then collapsed to 6 then 5. Sit ups similar -- I could barely hold 12 for two rounds.

Worked with Augie for first time in a long time, it was fun (and I barely noticed that he beat me by one).

Classic chest and back workout. Light core routine. Felt pretty good, but held back to recover.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Heeelllllooooo again!

Well it took way longer for me to get back into it but yes I am back!

In May I finally got my butt in gear starting on my own at home again, but miraculously I caught wind of a crossfit style gym just 5 minutes from home!

As a matter of fact the trainers are all at the crossfit games this week helping out and judging. (Anthony is judging the Masters)

So mid-June I signed up with Athletics Evolved and have not looked back. Apart from a crushed ego when I realized how much I had lost in that year off and adjusting to a different coaching style from my last CF gym, all is going well.

I'm pretty close to my old MEs except on squats. I can't promise to become a regular here again but I'll try to pop in and post from time to time.

Deb, Pat, John ... nice to see some familiar faces still kicking it.

Also nice to see some new blood too!
