    Fran might just have to move over on Monday.  Never done Grace…she always seems to show up on a weekend.

    For those who need inspiration before doing Grace, check out Rob Orlando crushing it at 275# (in 12:54):

  • As a slew of Monday non-attenders requested it, we’re swapping Monday and Tuesday’s WODs so folks who are never in on Mondays can finally take a shot at Fran.

    Therefore, Snatch / Fran is Tuesday.  Monday is:

    Back Squat 3×5

    4 rounds for time:
    Run 400 meters
    25 Burpees

    Thanks to Mike W for counting.

    4:14 Rx (from 11:05 on Aug. 20).

    I suspected my clean and jerk 1RM had gone up since I measured it at 110, so I did singles afterwards and maxed out at 135.

    Grace: 4:30 (105#)

    thanks to Ian and Matt for the motivation and jerk tips, would have been much slower without them

  • Allison  – Shelley West is running the marathon today too!

    5:16 @ 95#.  That’s a minute 20 better than my first and only Grace last month.  Thanks Kevin P.  And much thanks to Sara for the neutral pullups yesterday.

    Thanks for a great Sunday class. Never been on a Sunday and I’m sold.

    I am still resting too much.

  • 5:10 at 53#, my first Grace! 

    Heavier next time.

  • 5:30 Erica

    4:23 at 73#. 10 pounds heavier and 17 seconds faster than Aug 20. 

  • Sam G.

    Hit a PR on Overhead squat 3RM at 205, which was also a pr on the push press, since i never really measured my push press, but 205 went up easy. 

    Practice was fun, cant wait for the next one.
