    The love/hate relationship with “Fran”
    Here we go again.
    As many of you all know Fran is the 100 yard dash of Crossfit. It’s a the classic couplet burner meaning it should be done with little rest as possible. There should be no time for “water breaks”. This should be given full effort and scaled accordingly. Although this is a high intensity WOD, treat it with respect. There is no shame in scaling, EVER. You’ll have plenty of time for you to reach Rx. If you are new then you should aim for a sub 12 minute time. Regardless of whatever scaling options you choose.
    Also consider a strategy and STICK to it. It is very easy to get excited at the call of 3-2-1-GO and forget the plan. Split the rounds into 3 sets. So the round of 21 should be 7-7-7, the round of 15 into 5-5-5 and 9 would be 3-3-3.
    Make sure you record your time and scaling options when you’re done. It’ll be great way to measure your progress for the next time this bench mark arrive. Maybe you’ll use a heavier weight or even go Rx. Please log your times on the “white board” and share your experience on today’s blog. Have fun today KILL IT GUYS!

    Didn’t do Fran today- had to get Wodapalooza in.
    Snatch complex- 80#, 3 OHS
    (I was aiming for 80. Maybe could have done 85, but happy with 80. And haven’t done any OHS in months, so ok with 3 of those.)
    WOD2- 186 reps. Not super happy with that.

    Then-
    50 ring dips, 50 weighted GHD hip ext (25#)
    3rnft 50 DU, 500m row
