RIP Gary.
it always saddens me to hear of these sudden deaths.. especially as he was in reality young. Condolances to all who knew him and who will miss his presence in their lives.

yes it does indeed underscore the importrance of what we are doping to take care of ourselves..

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

March 20
Swam 500 yds (8:55)
Was going to do the mile/situps/back ext./mile right after, but the gym shut down and then got distracted at home. Call this an active rest day. Hopefully the serious training can start this week as my work volume should slow down a bit. At least I repaired my bikes today, so I'm all set for some cycling this week!

March 13
Swimming
3x500 yds, stretched between sets for 2-3 mins (9:05 pace every time, surprisingly consistent)
HR in high 130s

Felt good swimming. Hip is better today, but not yet pain free. Will probably roll and ice again tonight.
Jim, I posted some photos last year. 120 steps up, fairly steep incline too. Then there's a two mile earthen dam (grass) across the top, that is nice to run on, too. If you ever get to Columbus, gimme a shout and I'll be glad to take you out there.

so by reason of deductions i have concluded that tonite was a kick in the nuts in that 340 lbs is kinda heavy. and a wake up call in that if you are not 110% mentaly there either get there or don't mess around with 340 lbs. i know i was not there tonite 110%.

tomorrow will be another day.
Don't feel bad, Cliff. They have one of those things at the globo where I work out and I would have NO IDEA how to use it.

Weird workout tonite; off nite. Coach wasn't there, its spring break, school closing early, everything was kind of rushed. Never did backsquats so fast, just did a quick and sloppy try at 55kg C&J, because I didn't have time. Did the squats with like, no rest and still not time to try the 63s

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

March 14
1/2 mile warm-up jog
For time:
Run 1 mile (treadmill at 1%, 7:07)
100 Sit-ups (unanchored, hands touch ground behind head and touch feet)
100 Back extensions (hands behind head, full range of motion)
Run 1 mile (6:57)
20:06
1/2 mile warm down jog
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 3x110#, 3x130#, 4x145#
DH Pull-Ups: 5, 5, 10

Dang it!! 7 seconds too slow! My i-pod ear buds fell out twice and got tangled up during back extensions and that turned out to be the difference. I also went out too slow in the first half-mile in order to warm up a bit more. Oh well, I'll get this next time. Did the reps 40/20/20/20.
