8/10 WOD
Run Dolphin Fountain to No Shooting sign

Made it 5 miles in about 54 minutes then stopped. I started walking and running at about 4.5 miles. My legs felt very heavy, and I gave up when Dave Almeida passed me on the way to pick me up. Looking at Garmin, I started out pretty fast. Made it to the Old Mission in 25 minutes and to Sheffield Reservoir at 40 minutes. The last few yards on the Garmin were actually in car after Dave picked me up but before I turned off Garmin, it was not a sudden burst of running speed.

Monday August 11, 2014

Heart and lungs felt tired from yesterday's 10 minute AMRAP.

Mobility (pass throughs, goblet squat hold, OHS hold, ankle movements)

OHS 10x45

Practiced jumping with the bar in my pockets

snatches, 11 moves up to 155#

c&j, 11 moves up to 215#

Am still trying to learn the squat snatch and the squat clean.
They are coming, but slowly, and my butt still gets as high as my chest, which I am specifically trying to eliminate.

8/11 Hike Hotchkiss Mountain. 6.6 miles; 2400' elevation gain; max elevation 12,700'

Not sure which was worse, the uphill or the downhill. Don't think we'll be mountain bike riding tomorrow; we're both pretty whipped.

Walked 3.25 miles, some in a drizzle, some in the rain.

Then did some stretching and mobility.

Going to try to alternate lifting days with body weight and walking/swimming days.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
in teams of 2....2 rounds

20 ring chin ups (i got to sub 3x narrow mega rows) while partner holds 225lb bar up. when one stops their work switch.

40 24" box jump overs

60 wall ball with partner holding squat position (real squat position not the gorrilla type squat position)

200m. partner carry

i was partnered up with another 55 year old buddy. the only other m/m partners in the class was a 24ish RCMP officer fire breather and a late 20's super fast runner. we were even heading out the door for the partner carry after the first round and about 10 feet ahead of them at the turnaround point of the first carry.

i think the wheels fell off their bus right after the turn around though cause after that it seemed we were always one movement ahead of them.

we 2 old guys ended up wooping them by almost 2 1/2 minutes.....:D

200 large green band standing abs (unbroken)

3 x 50 single black strand abs oblique things
