Rest 5-8 min
With a continuous clock do 3 min of Hollow Rocks, rest as needed

Rest 1 min
With a continuous clock do 3 min of Hanging L-Sits, rest as needed

This workout was taken from the Crossfit Endurance site, but with a slight modification. We are subing FS in place of OHS and inserting pistols. I think FS may be a bit easier to do than OHS, thus the pistol addition in order to sufficiently bomb the legs.

2011 Goals

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I would like to accomplish for next year. This past year since my surgery has been a real struggle, both physically and psychologically. At one point I didn’t think I would ever be able get back to lifting what I once did and so resigned myself to thinking running was my only option for future fitness. I like running, but I also enjoy lifting. It is something I have done since I was 19 years old. I am now 45 years old, so it is ingrained in my DNA to lift. Not having that as an option was bordering on depressing. Anyway, my shoulder has recovered; maybe not 100%, but it is probably around 85% and getting better.

I’d like to hear what your goals are for the upcoming year. Although we train as a group, we are collection of individuals, and each person is driven for different purposes. Some train for competitive sports (runnning, soccer, rugby) whereas others train for functional movements (hiking, cutting wood). Examine what you are hoping to accomplish and post it to the blog. Even if you are not part of our crossfit group, I’d like to still hear what you have in mind for 2011.
