-----------------------------------------------
C&J's were OK at the lower weights but the 80 and 85 had no extension and had some press outs on them. 80 is a good working weight for me. That WOD is one of those deceivingly simple mini-suckfests (thanks CFO:rolleyes: !)
------------------------------------------------
You guys and gals have been putting in some good numbers over the last few weeks :pepper: !
BTW - Time off sucks. I've been losing weight again since I haven't been working out. It's been a problem all my life, grrrrrrrrr.

Ladies and Gents,

You mind if I chime in here. I turned 50 last March and have crossfitting since November. The summer was off and on due to travel but the last few weeks I've been able to get back in the groove. I have to drive 30 one way to my facility (Crossfit TriCities) but its worth it. Great coach and a good group of people. Just recently got on this BBS.

I'm making some goals to attempt most of not all of the wods Rx but just getting there. Yesterday it was Daniel and I did it in 26:41. Banging out the 21 thrusters with 95# was a beee-ach and the running slowed me down too. I used to be a big runner until I got hit with some foot issues. Those are mostly resolved now so I'm going to hit the trails again.

Some recent stats

Baseline: 5:26, July 1st
Annie: 14:30, Sept 10th
Back squat 1RM, 245, Sept 8th
Front squat 5x 5: 95,95,135,135,155f
Deadlift 1RM, 300 Sept 8th
Crossfit total, 675, Sept 8th

What I love about CF is competing against the young guys and holding my own.

Jeff

That's it. I had visions of trying [B]Linda[/B]'s Burpee/KBS WOD but was so gassed from the Press workout and the CFWU I disappointed myself into believing I should save it for another day.

Welcome Jeff,
So true for me too...lately I have been slamming all the young men in our box..with exception of my fellow trainers. I started out with my goal of RX'ing all WODS too...I can RX most but not all. Still working on OHS with RX weight, HSPU and MU's. Looks like we started CF about the same time, I haven't really missed any time off other than a few days here and there. It's incredible how things have changed since I started....specially the way I eat. I have never felt better...I believe this can be attributed more to my diet. I am pretty strict about Paleo and have incorporated allot of the Primal Blueprint ways of life. I highly recommend Mark Sisson's book "Primal Blueprint" There is a link on our website WFS [url]www.crossexcel.com[/url]. If you buy a copy and buy it through the link on our website, our gym will get credit for it :) . I would say the only thing I found in the book I am not to sure about is the recommendation of supplements, it seems somewhat a conflict of interest that the author highly recommends them, and he owns a nutrition supplement company. I am sure they help, I just have some doubt that they are really needed. I don't take any supps except fish oil. I probably would if I had a large bank account.

Sorry for the long winded post...Welcome.

Hi Jeff!

Yeah, that reminds me of Bill Phillips and EAS. But, that doesn't mean the plan isn't a good one.

Welcome aboard Jeff. If you are already doing the workouts as rx'ed that's great. Terry offered some great advice about diet. It is just incredible how well the Zone, or Zone-Paleo work in combination to enhance health.

Today, it did "Daniel": 1 RTF of 50 Pull ups, 400m run, 95# thrusters for 21 reps, 800m run, 95# thrusters for 21 reps, 400m run, and 50 Pull ups.

I substituted 500m row for the 400m run and 1000m row for 800m run. Doing this at the local gym was the equivalent of a "hunter gatherer" outing. It seemed like every work station I set up was taken when I returned for another exercise. At one point, I was going to have to drag a rower from under a ladder.
I finished in 26:52. I am enjoying these metcons more and more as we go along. Happily no torn calluses from all the pull ups.:pepper:

Tomorrow, I'm going to my first yoga class in several months. Figured I use it as a warm up for next week's "108 Sun Salutations" challenge.
