Charlie, Mark, and Terry,

Great job on today's WOD! I didn't think it would be so difficult, especially having taken a "rest week." Still fighting a "Fran Cough" I got doing this one!

Charlie,
Yeah, the doc said something about drill bits and stem cells. You bring the ball peen and drill bits and I'll go down to the commissary for a quart jar of stem cells.

I'm going into my sixth "rest" day and while I've managed to drop 6 lbs with the zone in the same amount of time, I fret that I'm losing ground.

Terry absolutely killed that walking lunge WOD and I'm itching to give it a shot. Damn this type A personality....

Scott,

Bet you don't lose as much ground as you think......rest does a body good! Props on the 6 pounds! Makes the pull-ups easier, at any rate.:D

Terry is our "rabbit" - - the guy to catch. He is a beast and an inspiration, that's for sure!

Shoulder press 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Push press 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5 reps

WU: ½ mile run, Burg. WU

Press 130/135/140/145/140
PP 135/140/145/150/155
PJ 135/145/150/155/160(4)135(1)

Arms refused the command to lock out under the bar on last 160 PJ rep.
This WOD took a long time to complete…1½+ hrs.
Everything except first press set is PR. :pepper:
One of the few WODs I can actually do in the base gym. Got it done this morning during sq PT.

Terry,

Glad you weren't motivated. Otherwise you would have beat your previous attempt by more than the 2 1/2 minutes your unmotivated self posted.

Scott,

Stem cells are in the frozen food aisle. Are you restricted from all exercise activities? There must be something you can work on. When you get back on your feet again, I would highly recommend doing Rippitoe's Starting Strength for a couple of months. Even though the general CF consensus is to just start doing scaled CF, I am convinced (especially after doing it myself) that a couple of months of SS has some benefits for us more seasoned infidels. One, you just start out stronger. And as Mr. Rippitoe says, "Stronger people are generally more useul and harder to kill". Two, I am convinced it toughens up your body, especially connective tissues, tendons, bones, and muscles for the rigors of CF. When I first tried CF, I had little injuries all the time. Now with a good foundation of SS first and then resumming CF, no problems. Even scaled, CF is hard on the ole body, especially for guys that are used to pushing themselves and won't quit even if it hurts them. Sound familiar? (I'd bet everyone in our little forum group has been, is, and will be guilty of this very crime). So far, for me, everything is holding together well. Also, your Zone diet will go a long way to helping things get better quicker. Lastly, I have a good selection of hammers in my tool box, but my binoculars are broken.

Re: Over 50 CrossFitters Sign In
 
Mark,

Almost afraid to ask...what is AMRAP?

Scott, Sorry to hear about the knee, that sucks.

Mark and Charlie, Nice job on on the WODs.

Steve and all thanks for the props, I sure don’t feel like a rabbit. BTW Steve you have a few years on the rest, you have been my inspirations since I started.

Yeah, yesterday sucked, got a cut in pay and got my blood test results back. :mad: My total cholesterol has been high for the last 5 years, floats around 200 when I am on meds, Doc says it’s hereditary. I went off the meds in January thinking 3 months of CrossFit, Zone/Paleo diet, losing 7” of gut and 25 lbs would drop it, thought maybe I could prove the Doc wrong. My level was back up to 235…it was 240 five years ago when they put me on Welchol and Zetia.

Oh well not sure what I am going to do… except keep CrossFitting,. I have an appointment this week to go over it with my Doc. I just hate taking chemicals.

Did the main WOD today,…figured out if I keep throwing the steel plates on the floor my wife my want me to by some bumper plates.:rofl:
