16:46. James and Mike Mac pulled ahead on the row and got even farther ahead on the burpees. I was able to "claw" my way back on double unders, however, and finished second, only 9 seconds off the pace. Fun WOD, good to blow out the lungs. Krista did an amazing job of struggling through 100 double unders (and throwing in about 500 single unders to keep her rhythm) and succeeding. Awesome mental toughness!

Hey Jim,

I have to try the 1000m row sometime. I love rowing. My knee doesn't too much, but the rest of me is willing to try it. I was wondering, I noticed that you and I are the same height, however you weigh much less. Are you doing Paleo? Zone? Or just lucky.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

I have a general question about Double unders. I can barely get them. When I do I could actually string two at a time. To those who have DB's, how did you go about it?

Thanks its hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You really need to compete with yourself and improve in whatever area you are shooting for.

Anyway I am still on my experiment repeating the same workout weekly.
Tonight I did "Gertrude" 21-15-9 135# Back Squat then pull up. 12:44

its really just practice; and learning to slow down the jumping, keep your hands low and turn your wrists faster. You could try single single double for awhile working toward more consecutive dobles. And, now I can't do SINGLE unders.

2 Min Max Sit Ups: 68
Then
4 Rounds for Time:
400 M Run
15 Thrusters (95#/65#)

22:53. Wow, this was the toughest WOD I've done in a while. Halfway though I was thinking I wish this was only Fran.

Probably a little of everything. I eat a semi-strict Paleo/Zone. This is as heavy as I've ever been, but I have to work to keep it from creeping up more.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

10/24 WOD

3 Rounds for Time
400 M Run
21 Pull Ups
12 Deadlifts (225#/155#)

17:12 as Rx'd. Strung first set of 21 pull ups straight, but that was pretty much the highlight of the WOD. Those deadlifts really sucked the life out of me. Had a hard time catching my breath on the runs (same thing happened on Friday) and I was wondering if it was some illness or just the deadlifts, but now in my office and on reflection, it was the deadlifts.
