Friday's Workout


For time:
  • 30 thrusters (135lbs / 95lbs)
  • Run 1 mile
"Go heavier than your Fran weight," Tim called out as we got ready. "Challenge yourself. These should be heavy enough that you can't go unbroken for more than five reps."

So I did as he said -- but just barely. Instead of my Fran weight of 95 pounds, I threw two teeny-tiny change plates on the bar and went all the way up to 105. Hey, as far as I'm concerned, Fran is enough of an asskicker.

I got through the first eight thrusters just fine, but as expected, the rest came in sputtering mini-sets of just a few reps at a time. And certainly, I wouldn't have won any points for style or technique. But I got through 'em, and the run in the frigid morning darkness was almost an afterthought.

Result: 13:52.
