  1. I feel nauseated.

  2. First Fran…

    I now LOVE skipping and HATE pull ups!

  3. First, lets recap:

    December 29th, 2009
    Thrusters @ 65lbs
    Pullups were strict, assisted with various/multiple bands & Amy….yes, she actually did push up on my back for even more help than the bands provided.
    Time: 9:08

    As Rx’d
    Time: 6:01

    For the fist time since joining up here at CFSJ, my grip actually became a big factor towards the end of the 15-round and twice through the 9-round. I was completely surprised by this as it was unexpected. Just for notes, I had to drop/clean the weight twice through the 15 round and once through the 9 round – if I had done that one less time, it would have been sub-6 minutes. Oh well, that’s upsetting, but a 3:07 improvement in time, a 30lb improvement on Thrusters, and all Kipping pullups is a big jump from 3 months ago! 😀

  4. Greg- that is impressive- you can see the physical change! nice work

  5. Mary Alice – not as impressive as you doing Fran TWICE today!!! 😉

  6. I beat my last time by over 3 minutes. When I did this in Febuary it took me 9:20. Today it only took 6:07. I used 45lb both times. Next time I am using 65.

  7. Thrusters at 85lbs.
    Elastic band assisted Pullups

    Took me 10.47

    Was my first time doing Fran at CrossFit Saint John. That time is going to get better as I come into Rx’d exercises

    Good job Michelle!
