Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
Hey guys, good to see you all around. Just got back from another round of bronchitis, antibiotics, and prednesone. The antibiotic left some tendon swelling in one wrist. Went back to the guy today and just did a variety of things. No timed WOD. Anyhow, my energy sucks. It's been three months since I worked out regularly. Time.....I guess.

Alden, Hope things go well!

Pat, Great to see you again!

Got some bad news today. One of our techs suddenly passed away this morning.
He was only 51 and yet enjoyed life. We'd run into each other at the base Globo and joke about shift changes. He will be missed.

.33333333mi run
~100+ SUs
10 leg swings each leg, both directions
10 Air Squats
5 inch worms (2 Push Ups)
10 leg openers
10 leg closers
10 24" box jumps
10 27#Presses
5 DUs & DU Attempts

Reverse Jackie
30 Pull Ups
50 Dumbbell Thrusters, 25# DBs
1000m Row


[I]The pull ups went easier than I expected. I was able to do 7 in row. The DB Thrusters were done in 5 sets of 10. The row was tough, especially on the last 500 meters. I was shooting for around 9 min, but felt a little disappointed. Checking my log, I found I had clipped 1:01 off my previous Jackie time! :pepper:[/I]

@ Alden...

Your ortho knows my ortho...

Mine told me to just swim!!! Yeah... I listened to him for a while and just kept getting worse ( knees...back,etc).

Well now that my squat is back to well over 400lbs, cleaning 225 with ease ( split jerk does hurt my knees like crazy) blah blah blah...

The harder/heavier I work, the better I feel.... Go figure :D
