I Hate Fran

Need I say more? Fran is a WOD that uses that odd combination of reps "21, 15, 9" and leaves you feeling like you were just beaten and mugged. Consequently, my post will be short today.

21 thrusters (35 # - Rx for women was 65#--not there yet)
21 pullups
15 thrusters
15 pullups
9 thrusters
9 pullups

Time: 10:18
Arms: immobile

My sweet DD 7 likes to pray for me before I leave for my workouts because she knows I'm scared. Today she prayed I wouldn't be the last one to finish. I wasn't. I was second-to-last. But I'm totally cool with that because God answered her prayer.

You read that right--I am actually scared before I go. Every time. I still go. I still win. I am not going to give up.

Happy New Year!

Accidental Box Jumper

So tonight while the kids were enjoying their CF Kids Christmas party, I decided to try to do a box jump. Turns out accomplishing this is mostly a head thing. I had been really afraid, but after a little coaching, I DID IT! I was rather psyched out about it at first, but once I landed the first jump (not to mention a major chicken-out) I was able to do several. When I got home from the party this is what I found on the facebook page. I was going to post something about my little accomplishment, but it turns out Lloyd beat me to it. Thanks,'re the best!
