Max Rope Climbs in 2 minutes then:

AMRAP 21 minutes:
21 Ring Dips
21 Box Jumps (20")
21 Toes to Bar
21 Double Understand (42 singles for me)

The max rope climb was just a learning session, but have rope burns to prove my efforts. Did the first round of ring dips unassisted then used a band. Those toes to bar were tough!

3 rounds + 19 box jumps

Ugh, 3 hrs sleep last nite. My butt & legs/adductors fatigued and even sore from the back extensions the other day.
And was slow today b/c I kept thinking about where is bar on my thigh, and not throwing to my head (so what does that mean for full extension if Im 5'8"? lol this is why Nick doesn't like to tell me stuff!).
Got interrupted in the last set of C&J and missed the 2nd clean, couldn't get up - finally realized it was b/c Im rocking forward onto my toes!! I think Im going lower with these, maybe bc Ive been front squatting some??
Legs were pretty tired by then, I tried 2X more, I finally just power cleaned the thing (like nothing) to finish last 2 jerks. Jerks were no issue, felt light, probably should split lower anyway. The first time C&Jing since the pulled hip flexor/snatch boo boo. Trap is a little sore from all that but not hurting during the workout.

9/3 WOD "31 Heroes"

AMRAP 31 Min
8 x 155# Thruster
6 Rope Climbs
11 Box Jumps (30"/24")
Run 400 M with a 45# plate

3 rounds + about 6 rope climbs. Paired with Andy Wood.

This was a demoralizing, miserable WOD. I started running and Andy did thrusters and some rope climbs. I took over rope climbs and some box jumps, then Andy returned and I started running again. I ended up never doing a single thruster (other than the one I did to test the weight pre-WOD @ 135#.) My rope climbs were terrible. I tried to wrap rope around feet to lift myself, but it was hard going. By far most of my rope climb reps failed. I finally did 6 efforts then moved to box jumps just so Andy would have some forward progress.

My right shin is abraded to hell because of the rope climb, my hands are toast from the rope climb and carrying the plate on the run, and I have a huge lump at the top of my back where I rested the 45# plate.

Not fun not to perform well. :( Rope climbs are my new goat! Nevertheless, this WOD was important to Brett V, so I'm glad I came out and did it.

[B][U]Wednesday, August 31[/U][/B]
Cycled 25 miles. 1:29:45. Not very fast today. Too many road blockages from the storm.

[B][U]Thursday, Sept. 1[/U][/B]
Went to U.S. Open tennis. Rest day.

[B][U]Friday, Sept. 2[/U][/B]
Swam 2000M at lunch (around 43 mins, went easy trying to simulate half IM pace)
After work cycled 12 miles and then ran 2.6 miles on a very hilly route. Didn't time myself, but felt fast.

[B][U]Saturday, Sept. 3[/U][/B]
Cycled very hilly 25 mile course (1:27:40, PR by 1:20).

Lots of good work being posted by people on this thread. Sorry for not being more sociable and reading/commenting on the various posts. I've been struggling trying to keep up with work, family stuff and training for the upcoming endurance events. Thankfully taper week starts tomorrow for the half IM.

By the way, where is Tim, JJ, Perry, etc.? and also the women that drop in and quickly leave? lol!!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
My house hasn't had Internet service until last night so haven't posted any workouts which is just as well since I had (and have) a bad sinus infection. Have been scaling back the WODs while recuperating.

Yesterday did a short and slow 3 mile run in the woods. Made myself stop at 3 but wanted to keep going. Did a lot of plyo work jumping over downed trees.

Glad to see everyone survived and thrived.
