Fran improvement

I did my 3rd Fran today as Rx'ed in 7:30 a 3 minute improvement over my last one 2months ago. My 1st one 5 months ago was 17:00. I still have a long way to go, but today I didn't have to break my first set of thrusters. Thanks to all who read and comment, just wanted to share my excitement.

Re: Fran improvement

Jason, nice job...that's a huge jump in work output. You could probably do Fran twice now in 17:00 minutes! (Don't get me wrong, once is enough.)

Re: Fran improvement


I did my first fran 3 months ago. I did 65lbs and jumping pullups.
Did it as RX'ed last week and finished in 8:27 I was super stoked.

Re: Fran improvement

That's awesome.

My first Fran was about 8-9 month ago and I completed it in about 15-16 minutes(I don't remember the exact time). Then at the cert I attended in August I got 7:00. I did it for the third time about a week ago and got 3:52.

I'm deployed right now, I still have about 5 months left to go. My goal is to get a sub 3 by the time I leave. I can get through the first 21 Thrusters and PU's without stopping, but after that I have to break the last two sets up slightly.

It really shows you how effective CrossFit is when you see how much you've improved the next time you do the same workout.

Re: Fran improvement

That's a huge improvement. Congrats.
Crossfit has taught me that even when I think I can't, I know I will.
