Fran 11-12-08

Fran as Rx'd:

7:34 (PR)

25 second PR!!!  I simply cannot believe it.  It doesn't make any sense.  After 6 weeks off of CrossFit, my Fran time improved!?  I'm flabbergasted.  I've got to give props to my buddy Dan who pushed me by insulting my manhood and saying I was doing Fran as Rx'd even though I wanted to do it with 75lbs in order to get a respectable time.  I was just hoping for sub 10 minutes.  I don't know how to explain a PR.

The only thing I can think of is that the difference was in the thrusters.  The bottom of the thruster felt notably stronger then it did before, I'm guessing because of all the back squat workouts (18 to be exact!) I've done in the last month and a half.  

I had 4 guys yelling at me throughout the workout and all were watching my form.  I got called on one bad thruster in the first set at #12 when I didn't lock my elbows out.  This workout absolutely wrecked me.  I worked just as hard on it as any workout I can remember.  I was on the ground floundering like a pathetic little girl afterwards.  It hurt just to breathe.  I'm loving it!

Welcome back buddy! Excellent job pushing yourself last night!

Thanks for making me do Fran as Rx'd. I would have gone the wussy route for sure if you weren't there to put me in my place. I should listen to you more often. Except when you are creating a workout. They are never anywhere near sane. You my friend are an inspiration to stoopid!

"stoopid" is definitely right.

And I stole that workout from Brendan G from North Santa Cruz (at least I think it was him).

I also but a welcome back to crossfit comment on my blog.
