Think again... Tuesday's wod was Fran + running... I'm not sure how, but it seems like in the last two weeks, everytime we got to the gym, the wod has SOMETHING in it that I suck at. Twice it's been ring dips, we got running twice, I got push-ups once, deadlifts.... if I didn't know any better, I'd swear someone hated me or was just plain trying to kill me... regardless though.... I have gotten two days in already this week, but since today I have to work a double, I'm not going to go do today's wod which involves a mile run and then walking lunges. For comfort purposes while I'm at work for the next 12 hours, I just don't think that sounds like a good idea.... I mean, I may be WAY out on a limb here.... but I'm thinkin' not so much a good idea. Believe it or not, servers actually NEED their legs to move in order to work. Yeah... crazy thoughts there I know, but really we do! :P
Btw, someone told me yesterday about the rumor that Oprah told people to tip 10% during these tough economic times... I certainly hope she didn't actually say that, but if she did, please don't follow that advice. If I screw up, and lord knows that I do on occassion, please feel free to jack my tip accordingly. But if not, please dont' tip 10% just because it saves you money. When you don't tip your server, they actually don't get paid. No, I'm not joking. You do know servers don't make minimum wage right? In the great state of VA it's $2.13/hr. And I get to tip out at the end of the night, so my food runners, bar tenders, and bus boys/girls get a pretty nice chunk of "my" money.
Ok, moving on from my service industry rant, back to Fran...or sort of Fran... or RFran (Running Fran?)? Either way you slice it... it SUCKED! My Fran time is... meh. It's not bad, could be better. But let's be honest, my running... wah, wah, wah.... yeah. That's how good that is. So when you put the two together, you get a whole lot of suckage. RFran looks like this...
21 Thrusters 21 Pull-ups 800 M run
15 Thrusters 15 Pull-ups 600 M run
9 Thrusters 9 Pull-ups 400 M run
Total time: 19:35
Not bad for a girl who took a hiatus, and sucks at running. Still, this blew... and if I had to, I would probably not repeat this again... actually, I may repeat this again, but you know what I sure as f wouldn't do?!?!?!? I wouldn't drink a coffee an hour before!!!! I totally figured that with an hour + before I even started to warm up, the coffee would work it's way through my system. Oohhhhhhhh I was so wrong about that, and as I was running, yeah, I seriously almost bit it a couple times. I have never actually met Pukie (probably shouldn't have said that because now it's almost inevitable) in the three years I've been doing CF but lord if ever there was a day, that was pretty close to it. I seriously thought I was going to lose it a couple times on that run. I was pushing pretty hard and I thought it was going to happen... so I forced myself to slow down on the runs.
Note to self (and others) DO NOT DRINK COFFEE IMMEDIATELY BEFORE FRAN OR RFRAN!
This has been a friendly CF public service announcement.... :P
BTW... CWeiss... I hope you're happy that I'm posting my wods again... I'm doing it just for you... :P
Oh yeah, yesterday's wod... I didn't do so hot because apparently math is not my thing... LOL...
60 Ring Dips
Partition anyway you'd like. DL should be 80% of max. Abmats or GHD's can be used for sit-ups. I tried to get up to 80% of my max but my head just wasn't circling right around the DL's. For whatever reason, my deadlifts are just so weak. I lose tension and then it's all back and that's just not good. So I dropped, then dropped again, then dropped again, and then realized I was done with dips but not dl's or sit-ups..... duh! :P So my deadlifts finished around 60% of my max instead of 80% but hey, you know, I played it smart and I lived to walk today and still got a sweat in, so I guess that's the good thing. And with all this talk about me doing this to stay healthy, this was perfect. I got work in... it wasn't super fast or strong, but I was smart and still worked my muscles. So... it was still a good day. :P
