Describe “Fran” in Four Words
Tomorrow, my lovely athletes will experience Fran. I am so giddy that we are finally doing this workout that I will probably have a hard time sleeping.
There are four letters in Fran, so please comment if you can and in four Words, describe Fran if you have met her.
My four words are:
I use these four words because that’s how I feel the whole time.
I’m actually nervous the entire workout. Every other WOD, the nerves go away when I start, but not Fran. Before the first thruster, I am nervous about the first thruster.
When I’m doing thrusters, I am nervous about finishing the 21 unbroken.
When I am done with the thrusters, I am nervous about the pull-ups and if I will be able to finish them too.
With three pull-ups left, I am nervous and dreading the 15 thrusters.
It’s horrible from the first rep. I often think to myself during the first rep, “Why in Gods Name Am I Doing This???”
And instantly I can’t breathe the same and my heart rate goes up to 583 bpm. Thats real talk, yo…
And I can’t breathe for like 15 minutes after.
TempleStrength, meet Fran.
Fran, meet TempleSrength.
