1st time: 3min 50sec ( w/95lbs for thrusters, BW pullups)
2nd time: 2min 40sec (same as above)
I didn't rest in between the thrusters and pullups but I did miss count the first 21 pullups and my friend timing me said I did 19 so I jumped up and did the last 2. It took me 30min to keep myself from puking and at least 1.5 hours to start to feel myself again. Is that normal?

For a time like that on Fran, I'd say yes. That (2:40) is REALLY fast.

Now wheather or not that is desirable (feeling like crap for upwards of a couple of hours) is another story...

I lean towards Yes, this is the price you pay for super-quick fran, diane or elizibeth times. Perhaps the body eventually becomes better at functioning under the high lactic-acid levels that these elicit, but until then it's like jumping off the table just in time during a lethal *probably* won't die, but you wish you could ;)

Oh yeah, and good job! My best is 4:38...and that was killer!

8:45 hardly "sucks", Mark. It's not bad.

2:40, on the other hand, is something not of this world (or, at least, not of our species). Feeling sick is definitely the price I would pay for a time even twice that fast.

I have the same problem. My best time for Fran so far is around 5min. Afterwards I have to hold back from puking and I usually feel extremely tired. It can take a few hours for me to recover. I think its normal considering the amount work being done at such an intense pace.

2:40! I will be happy when I get a sub 4min Fran.

I'll be happy when I get a sub 10 minute Fran! 2:40 is freakish, unreal.
