View Full Version : fran for first time, 13 minutes

i tried fran today. i scaled it back a bit, using 85lb thrusters instead of 95lb. i've never done a thruster before, so i was unsure of what weight to use. i tried it with just a bar, then with 65lbs, then 85lbs. 85 felt real heavy, so i was afraid to try 95.

13 minutes even. it was a lot faster than i expected, but i think i can do it as rx'd next time in under 15. crossfit workouts are no joke. i got some stares in my gym. no doubt people doing kickbacks think i'm nuts. more details in my journal.

Sounds good my friend. I've never done Fran before, but I imagine it (along with every other CF WoD) is a lot tougher than it sounds.

Fran whooped my ass when I tried her. Something like 12 minutes and a few seconds.

Nice work especially for your first time.

Good stuff, benny! I still get nervous every time I see Fran come up in the WOD ...
