My first Helen

3 rounds for time:
400m @ 7.0
kb swings x 21 w/35 # db
12 sissy pull-ups

- The first lap was a breeze, my running has so improved since I began CFing . Subsequent laps were a bit more labor intensive but nothing to puke over!
- The ymca's pull-up bar is mere inches from the ceiling and doesn't allow for jump pull-ups (my story, I'm sticking to it ).
I did find that in between the kb swings and pullups I rested a bit too long...I think? Regardless, I am still pleased with my overall time and will try and best it the next time I'm faced with Helen.

Re: My first Helen

I love all of the "my first"! and "PR"'s

My name is Helen and today was my first Fran. Hopefully we'll both have many more firsts!
