End benchmark 2

Poison Friday, but I had to do my second paleo challenge benchmark. Had to if I want to win.

My second benchmark was the classic dirty girl, Fran. After doing the Super Fran in the Open, I wasn’t really scared of it. Again, because of the healing shoulder in January, I did the WOD scaled, at 65lbs. Super Fran was 105lbs…

In January, I did it in 6:34. This time around, I crushed it, at 4:45. I shaved almost two minutes off my time!

Next time will be Rx, but will most likely take more time.

And even though it rains outside, I’m also very happy, and proud to say that I’m slowly getting my head wrapped around the mechanics behind the butterfly pullup. I can do two in a row, but not 3. I tried, and tried, and tried – before and after Fran, so muscle fatigue doesn’t quite play a big role in there – but I just can’t seem to string a third one in there. I’ll practice on my birthday resent from the Mrs, a pullup bar. 🙂
