Welcome, Beck.

Linda, great job on the planks.

Did the 091101 workout today. 4 X 8oo meter run. Scaled this to 4 X 1000 row. Completed these in 4:35, 4:27, 4:31, and 4:28.

In addition to the regular warmup, I did 5 X GI Jane. Did the same at the end.

Welcome Beck !


Row 2222m - 9:01.7
KB Drills

Double unders (Subbed 5:1 single unders)
Sit ups

5 rds (not for time)
10 pull ups
10 push ups
10 KB swings (2 pood)
1 Rope climb

Hip resurfacing surgery is now scheduled for 12/4. Recovery time is about the same as a Total Hip Replacement but I should have a better range of motion. Doc says I may even be able to run again. Squats may be limited to body weight but I should be able to go past 90 degrees.
The promising news is that some guy in his early sixties set an age and weight class record in the DL with a lift over 500# 14 months after similar surgery.

WOD: 10 rounds for time of 12 burpees/12 pullups
did one round and 12 burpees and 10 pullups and the wheels came flying completely off and smacked me in the head. Total fail. I don't think I've ever DNF before and have been triple-dog analyzing it ever since. I blame it on the booze and lousy diet. The wife is deploying in a day or two (blame it on the Air Force, [B]Charlie[/B]) for 12 months and we (mostly "I") have thrown caution to the wind diet-wise. As soon as she leaves I'm going on the wagon and taking the cave man 30 day pledge.

Oh, and [B]Deb B[/B], my measurement was off. It is a 24" box and not a 30". My apologies. Oh, and that crazy WOD of yours is going down tomorrow (or the next day).

11AM workout in the gym with Bill

I did well today - sit-ups at the speed of light - got my DL back to 155 and did a ton of jumping pull-ups. The bad news was that Bill is closing his gym after 17 years. Times are tough. I'll work out with him again on Friday and after that, I don't know.

I look forward to Patrick making a go of his CF affiliate but the details on that seem to be constantly changing in a way that makes me wonder if it will happen before we freeze to death on the North Shore one morning. That's where I'll be tomorrow morning.

Today - 11/04/09
6AM Group workout on the North Shore

Group leader didn't show so I led:
25 squats
400m run
60 bench step-ups
15 push-ups
100 jumping jacks

I don't know how effective it was fitness-wise, but we stayed warm!

Very interesting sight on the North Shore this morning - Hand-built full-scale replicas of Columbus' Nina and Pinta were docked on the shore. [URL=""][/URL] (WFS) On our first 400m lap, it was dark and we couldn't see them until we were almost on top of them. For the next half-hour, we watched the sun come up behind them. Very cool!

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Took a rest day and will again today. In fact I do not plan to workout again until 11/7/09. I am sore everywhere. Feel like I did back in early June when I gave myself a couple of weeks rest. Plus my lower back is strained on one side. It is mild, but I have to be careful because of my scoliosis. I hope to be eager to go at it on Saturday morning.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 07:29 PM.
