    That’s good squatting, LaLa! You look badass.
    Fran last night, 8:51. 2 minute PR and my second time rx’d. Very happy with that, and many, many thanks to Beefie and Mike K, a/k/a “boss” who continually push me and yell at me and laugh in my face when I complain that I don’t like the floppy plates or that I don’t have three more pullups.
    I’m with Rob on this one and don’t understand “their” obssession with all things Frank-like followed by Elizabeth. Having a conversation with my body this morning that goes like this: Thank you, body, for carrying me through a sub-10 minute Fran as I requested last night, don’t worry about the symptoms you are experiencing, it’s just the Fran flu and will be over in a few days. Also, there’s no need to scream at me every time I walk up stairs or bend over to pick something up, I know you’re tired. This afternoon, I’m going to ask you to do some 95 lb squat cleans. Just don’t ask too many questions. It’s not yours to ask why, only to accept and perform. Thanks.

    Yeah, when this came up in October we had Fran on a Sunday and Elizabeth the next day. The note in my workout log reads something like, “7 minutes off of my PR time. Tired from Fran?”

    And, when they had Fran in a boat, for which I subbed with running, I remember that it too was followed by Elizabeth, I believe….

    Fran flu. It’s real folks, and it will get you. Watch out for it.
    I like how the “body’s job is to perform, not to ask questions.”

    Looking for opinions on this since I don’t have any of my own. Yesterday was a rest day for me so I missed Fran. Should I do Fran today then Elizabeth tomorrow, or the other way around?

    Also, does anybody know anything about the CrossFit Movement and Mobility Certification? It’s 2 weeks from now in Decatur and it’s not sold out.

    I would do Elizabeth today. You will have the group to workout with and motivate you. I’m sure you can sucker someone into doing Fran with you tomorrow.

    I’m experiencing some real separation anxiety. I would do just about anything to get in a WOD at CFATL.

    Outlaw! whats happnin man? last I spoke with you i think there was a cf near you that was going to open. I think if memory serves me right, you were gonna finally have a legit CF gym to train at. sounds like that may not be the case. . . regardless I hope all is well, and your legal studies are going well. Good to see that ugly mug of yours, even if it is by pic

    going to probably hit Fran this Saturday AM out at Crossfit Cobb up in Marietta. The only issue right now is that I have no one to do it with me. If I can’t round up one or two more people (suckers)to join me, I will probably wimp out and do something else. let me know if you want to join. That invite goes for anyone interested

    Time conflicts and constraints. I spend most of time away from class either studying or sleeping. But I’m gonna hit Elizabeth tonight once the the gym clears out a bit. Won’t be Rx’d since the gym doesn’t have rings, but something is better than nothing, right?

    Good to hear from you. Aren’t you coming in town sometime soon?

    Elizabeth in 8:35. Nearly a 3 minute PR, so hopefully finally figuring this workout out.
    Good thing too… otherwise Stephanie would have given me a run for my money. Good work!

    Yo Rob! The plan is sometime over Xmas break. Haven’t worked out the details but I’m thinking around New Year’s.

    My body spent the entire workout tonight asking questions and generally complaining about “Fran Flu”. Elizabeth, 110#, 26:09, about 7 minutes slower than my PR at this weight.
    Too many workouts in a row for this old body, got four PRs in four consecutive days on Eva, Filthy Fifty, Angie, and Fran, should have quit while I was ahead instead of trying for five. Looking forward to the rest day tomorrow.

    Tried to take back the crown and failed miserably. The “Old Man” is still the Elizabeth champ. I got a 5:50. I tried to break up the cleans into three sets each round. It didn’t go work so well. I ended up taking too much rest in between sets. I think I have a different strategy in mind. I might have to try this one again, soon.
    Outlaw, good to hear from you. It will be good to have you back over Christmas break.

    What’s up Mike? Impressive time. I did this one tonight in 10:20ish with regular dips; no rings in the gym. About a minute slower than the first and only other time I did Elizabeth. Not too bad considering this is only like my 5th WOD since coming here. Tomorrow is going to hurt really really bad.

    Elizabeth Rx: 14:38. PR by 4:54. Vas said I take too much time getting set up. Gotta work on that.
    Fran tomorrow.

    Miss you, Outlaw!!!

    I kind of wimped out on Elizabeth today. I dropped the weight to 88, and I switched to power cleans. I have a training theory, if you did Fran the day before, do power cleans. If you didn’t do Fran the day before, do squat cleans. Still happy with my Fran time yesterday and fairly satisfied with Elizabeth today. My time was 17 something. So pleased for a rest day tomorrow.
