A 1:50 PR!!! Compare to 7:34 a month ago on 11-12-08. I'd say that this crossfit strength program is more then working! What a great day in the gym. Took a brief rest in the 1st round of thrusters at 13 and 17 while still in the rack position. Broke pullups 15-6. 2nd round of thrusters broken 8-7 (I think) and pullups 9 - 6. 3rd round of thrusters and pullups unbroken. Last time I did Fran I did the first set of 21 thrusters unbroken and then 15 pullups. I think that is a good way to shoot your wod, so I tried to break it up a tad more and take the first round of thrusters at a little slower pace to keep something in the tank for the rest of the workout. Seems to have worked. 1st round - 1:58 2nd - 4:28.
I'm stoked with this time!! 45 seconds away from hitting one of my biggest goals. Who knows? Maybe in another month I'll break the 5:00 mark. If I keep progressing as I have been then I'd say thats going to happen. A portion of this PR comes from getting my metcon back (and then some) after finishing my SS cycle 5 weeks ago. Combine that with steadily increased strength gains, an increased amount of heavier overhead work in metcons and you've got a winning recipe for taking on the nasty beast of a girl that is Fran. This programming has been awesome and I've got to give all the credit and props to Jeff Martin of Brand X and his crew of trainers! Thanks Coach!! I couldn't be happier with my progress!
