    1. Whoops, it was Monday when I did that. And, OMG, I just realized that those pull ups were combined with Front Squats, Thruster’s evil younger sister. GOOD GOLLY, who said Christmas can’t come early!!

  1. Patrick

    Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5
    95-115-135-145-155×1 (was only suppose to go up to 140lbs today)

    NOT good. Missed my PR by over a minute. As I reflected on this workout on my drive home, I think the 95lbs weight is the biggest factor for me. I do fairly good on all workouts that are less than 95lbs. If I want to do well at 95lbs I have to be in TOP shape and well rested. Anything with 95 and above is just over the edge for my strength level.

    I’m not making excuses, I’m just telling myself that I should look forward to those heavy workouts because they are the ones that I need to make me stronger.

    Last time I used the green band and my time was 7:24 so I am happy with my performance. It will be awesome to do this work out in the future without the band.

    Great job Joanna!

    PR of 1:50 from July wanted under 7 but had nothing left for grip by the end. Next time!

    Awesome job this morning Ed, I knew you’d get your goal and thanks for the push! Corrina when you start doing pullups as rx with no bands in wods (which will be soon I’m sure!) you’re going to be a force… Great job girl!
    Fav lady…..Maybe Nasty Girls

    “Fran” (Rx’d) —> 8:18

    PR! I did this in February and basically quit finishing only 4 of 9 thrusters in 12 minutes. Still not a fan of thrusters but feel much better about Fran right now. I wouldn’t go steady with her but we could meet for a few casual dates. 😛

  11. WU x 3

    Deadlift
    45×10, 65×5, 95×5, 115×5, 130×3, 145×9(amrap)

    “Fran” as Rx – 12:03 😀

    Thank you for all the encouragement everyone! Ha ha, I’m just looking at Jeff’s post and I didn’t know there was a 12 minute time limit. Oh well, as Coach knows, I don’t like limits! Hee hee!

  12. Tracy S.

    WUX3
    Push Press: (3’s) 60-65-70-75
    Ran out of time to try one more, but think maybe I could have done it 🙂

    WOD: “FRAN” 21-15-9
    Thrusters (45#)
    Pull-ups (red)
    Struggled with the pull-ups but got it done in 9:17.
    Was my first encounter with FRAN, and well… I don’t think we can be friends.

  13. Gabrielle

    Warm up times 3

    Strength cleans (practice is more what I’d call this one)

    WOD Fran

    21-15-9
    thrusters (65#)
    kipping pullups (yellow band)

    Time: 10:36 every second of that one felt absolutely disgusting… Still not feeling 100%, but I’m happy to be back at it and hope that I’ll be back to healthy myself soon.

    Great job to everyone today!
    Special shout out to Heather and Kerry for their big PRs tonight on the back squat and push jerk 🙂 Gerry and Gabriel, you guys impressed tonight too 😀
