My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Fran

on February 26, 2013

Sorry I have been MIA for the weekend. I had some family things to take care of that pushed blogging right out of my mind.

I still don’t really feeling like writing, but figured I should at least do a quick post. So here we go…

Today I was back at the box and the WOD was Fran. This was my first “benchmark” workout, and in true CrossFit fashion, I was nervous and terrified as I walked into class.

In case you are like me and have no idea what all these workouts are, Fran is a workout of only thrusters and pull-ups done for three sets with reps of 21-15-9. Looking at it on the screen it seems so harmless…but trust me, it is pure hell!

This was my first time doing thrusters, so once again I was told to focus more on form than weight. I felt like a complete weakling though, using only the training bar (without any weight) and a thick blue band for my pull-ups.

It took me 7 minutes and 1 second to complete the workout. For my first time, the time isn’t too bad. I’m just disappointed I can’t lift more yet or do pull-ups without the band. Oh well…I will continue to work hard and hopefully the next time we do Fran I will be lifting more and using a thinner band for my pull-ups. Fingers crossed!

Have you done Fran?
What’s your time?

    Now you’ve got the Fran Bug! Believe me you’ll stay hungry to beat your time as you continue. That hunger will help you improve on kips and thrusters and in no time you’ll be RX’ing!
