Fran PR

Last time I did Fran, I used 60 lb thrusters and only made 22:45.

One month later, and today's Fran was done with 65 lb thrusters and I blasted through it in 9:30! That's a PR of thirteen minutes and fifteen seconds. The thrusters didn't kick my butt as much, either. I had planned to split everything into threes with about fifteen seconds rest between sets. When I got down to nine thrusters, I was still able to blast through that in two sets! Pull ups were the limiting factor with failure hit occasionally.

I was feeling so good about it that I ran outside in the rain and gave a modified rendition of "singing in the rain" (nobody was around). I also saw fit to add this massive accomplishment to my sig.

I now officially love Crossfit.

Oh, I should also mention that 65 lb thrusters are actually more than the proportional amount for rx'd. At 111 lbs, Rx'd for me is about sixty pounds. Even a Heavy Fran would only have me using 85.
