as i've mentioned briefly before, i am on a quest for a sub 3:00 min fran. i've been experimenting a little bit here and there doing heavy fran (95#), light fran (45#), and breaking fran up, by doing it as rx'd with 65# but only the 21 rep round, or 15 rep round, or 9 rep round. my little experiment seems to be working.
i decided to go for fran yesterday. last time fran came up, i did heavy fran this time i was ready to go for a new pr. it's funny i knew all day i was going to hit a new pr, i just felt it. i went into the gym, calm did my warm-up

comments: i decided to go for fran yesterday. last time fran came up, i did heavy fran this time i was ready to go for a new pr. it's funny i knew all day i was going to hit a new pr, i just felt it. i went into the gym calm and at ease. i did my warm-up, some light thrusters and yesterday i taped up the bar. that made such a difference, those rubber foamy things on our pull-up bar really do a number on your grip. i paced around for a bit while i waited for someone to time me. i got my ipod ready walked up and cleaned that bar into my first thruster. finished the 15 rep round at 2:10. that last round of 9 was a time sucker, 5 then 4 thrusters, 5 pull-ups then 2 and 2. so close to that sub 9 fran. just need to eliminate the rests and i'm there. also did butterfly kips for the first time on fran.
here is what happened post fran yesterday:
1-3min post: felt ok, tired
4-8min post: arms felt so swollen and in pain chest hurt
9-15min post: can't see straight, lightheaded, metallic taste, light cough
16min-21min post: felt like i seriously might die, is something wrong? still weak
21-30min post: felt like i'd smoked the best joint of my life. high as a kite, laughing at everything (bonus no munches!)
30min-35min: pukie came to visit
35min-tbd: fran cough like non other.
wow, and i'm sore today, still coughing.
