Programming Fran at 5:30am class should be considered a crime. That Wod is absolutely brutal under any conditions. I think the gym did a great job programming it so that everyone got the right level of stimulus regardless of how much you scaled it.
Here is how they planned it.
Int- x2 Rest 3mins 65/45
Beg- x3 Rest 5mins 45/15
I partnered with Andrew Paul and judged and cheered him on. He set a PR which was quite awesome.
My strategy was to try and be paced and smooth. Knocked out the first 21 of each unbroken no problem. Then I got tired and broke things up probably more than I had to on both Thrusters and Pulllups in the round of 15. The round of 9 is always a relief. I just dont have the drive right now to push myself into that really dark place.
3:34 - Wasnt completely wrecked and I might be able to do that pace again with a 10-15 minute break.
