"Grace" and "Isabel"

I've been doing CrossFit since the last part of Feb and I'm still struggling on some of the WOD'S we do. But this week I did Isabel and Grace and was wondering what a decent time for me was. Like I said, only two months into CrossFit.

My times on Grace and Isabel...........

Grace 3:21

Isabel 3:49


I've never done these Wod's before. And both were floor to overhead however I could get them. So I didn't do squat cleans or squat snatches.
Thanks,
Chris S.

As far as those two girls go...those are good times.

But if it takes you 10 minutes to do 'Fran'??...not that it does. Just saying not to focus on 1 or 2 benchmarks.

Re: "Grace" and "Isabel"

My training prior to this was non-existant for about a year. I've been involved in strength training before, so my strength is there. But my cardio and endurance needs alot of work. As far as "Fran", my time was 9:06. I suck at pull-ups right now.

Re: "Grace" and "Isabel"

Those are good times for Grace and Isabel. If you are strong before coming into CF, thats not very surprising. I was the same way, and the longer metcons will show our true weaknesses.

Yes, the long metcons kinda kick my ***. But I'm getting there.

Re: "Grace" and "Isabel"

Just how strong are you? Not just good, those are awesome times, especially after just two months of Crossfit. My best Grace (last week) is only 3:49 and I've been doing this for about 3 years. But then, I'm not that strong, relatively speaking.

Re: "Grace" and "Isabel"

I guess I'm pretty strong. It's just the cardio that kills me right now.
