    Been a while since I did Fran…8:32…not great but a number to beat in 6 weeks. Amazing how this WOD makes you feel afterwards..like I lost a lung!

    9/14/14 5:13 RX
    9/21/15 3:57 RX

    Loving the progress and knowing money well spent!
    You can always tell Fran is the WOD when there is a silence prior to class and everyone is focused on stretching and debating strategy!
    Gratz Everyone!

    Some Frans:
    3/5/12 – 8:59 Rx
    9/4/12 – 8:44 Rx
    9/9/13 – 8:03 Rx
    9/15/14 – 6:43 Rx
    10/30/14 – 7:28 Rx
    9/21/15 – 6:00 Rx (PR)

    I had a theory last year that my 10/30 retest was so much worse than my 9/15 test because it was a Thursday. Tonight further convinced me that I’m better on Mondays.

    Fran Progress:

    April 2014: 8:30 L2
    June 2014: 8:16 L2
    ** INJURY **
    Sept 2014: 9:48 L2
    Oct 2014: 9:00 L2
    Sept 2015: 7:34 L2 (which is a 32 second PR)
    VERY psyched about this. Especially after a not-so-healthy weekend. Thanks Berretta for pushing me through this.

      09/22/2015 @ 1:36 am

      …and checking back to my old journal for my first date with Fran on 9/4/12:
      13:55 L2 (w/ 1 red band for the first 26 pull ups and 2 red bands for the final 19 reps)

    • JBo

      09/22/2015 @ 2:34 am

      …and…Fran apparently wiped away my ability to perform basic math. That would be a 42 second PR!

  • Trevor Crean

    09/22/2015 @ 12:12 am

    Franny: 4:47 Rx. (Up from 5-something @ L2)
    WOD2: 11:14 w/ half the reps on the GHD.

  • Nick Brown

    Fran 4:25 RX, first time at the RX weight. I don’t remember my WOD2 time, too busy trying not to throw up.

    got fired up last night watching myself stand around in that video and falling apart in the round of 15. Redid Fran today went smoother off the start instead of trying to keep up with Money Masley… set a PR at 2:40 RX

      2:20 you bozo

    Fran:
    10/30/14: 7:02 L2 (75#)
    2/1/15: 6:47 Rx
    9/21/15: 5:42 Rx (actually looking forward to retesting since I did not treat my body well this weekend)
    WOD2: 11:55 Rx

  • Molly

    09/21/2015 @ 1:36 pm

    9/15/2014 – 35# and a red and blue band – 4:41
    11/2/2014 – 45# and a blue band – 6:34
    9/21/2015 – 55# and 2 purple bands – 7:01

    The pull-ups are definitely my nemesis so I think as those improve I can get back down to my L1 time with L2 weight. 12:16 on WOD 2

    Fran:
    2011: – Like 12 minutes with blue band, haha
    2012 – 7:59 rx
    6/2013 – 6:43 rx
    9/21/2015 – 4:05 rx – I know I can do better than that wasn’t feeling 100% today. I hate this workout its crazy how shitty you feel for so long after when it’s such a short amount of work!

    Had no idea I had that in me this morning! Thought hitting sub-6 last year was it for me, now the chase for sub-5…

    • Molly

      09/21/2015 @ 1:43 pm

      you were cruising this morning! thanks for helping me pick out my scaling option and hopefully i’ll be chasing sub-5 with you one of these days!

      • melstec

        09/21/2015 @ 3:33 pm

        You kicked ass! The pull-ups will come stronger & stronger every day now! You’ll be there before you know it 🙂
