Finally!! My First Rx Fran

It only took 15 months, but today I completed my first Rx Fran. I have done this workout 3 times in the past - all with 75# thrusters.

Just yesterday I was convinced that my shoulder would keep me from getting this workout done. I was pretty sure I could get the 95# thrusters, but 45 unassisted pull-ups seemed unlikely - and I did not want to re-injure myself with the charity competition just 3 days away.

I did a few test pull-ups during the warmup today. My shoulder felt better than it has in weeks. Game on!

My plan was to get this done in under 10 minutes. I broke up the thrusters into 7-7-7 and 5-5-5 and then 5-4.  Pull-ups started the same way, but I ended up breaking it up even more to spare my shoulder.

I got to the last set of pull-ups and 9:34. I did 7+1+1 and finished at 9:55. Not going to the games with that time, but I was ecstatic!
