First Time Fran!

I did it as Rxed in 11:57. I knew it wasn't going to be fast, but I wanted to do it without scaling it. That hurt! The thrusters were so heavy--I broke my first set up into 10 & 11, my second into fives, and my third into threes. My pullups were all over the place because I was so tanked from the aforementioned exercise. But I did it!

After this and the 1x7 shoulder press workout, I have been humbled enough to know that I need to go back to a SS routine for a few months with (hopefully) a short metcon at the end of each workout. Look out food! I'm coming for ya'!

I started building my milk tolerance back up yesterday (and I've got to say, it's been tough since not drinking much of it lately. I never recognized the mucous-thickening effect of it before until today because I've never had so little of it in my diet up until this last month). I'm hoping to be in the 6000-7000 kcal range again by Monday.

I'm going to go dig a grave for my quads now.

Nice Jeff!

An un-scaled "Fran" is certainly something to be proud of.

Re: First Time Fran!
