I haven't been participating in this thread but I think I need to :)

Past weekend was ok but not great. Next weekend has no guarantees.

I'm trying to figure out my breakfast. I've flipped flopped on breakfast quite a bit over the last year. This morning I had a protein shake. I think that is what I'll focus on this week.

I walked the dogs this morning but plan to have a workout later on today.

21-15-9 reps for time of:

Pullups

Great workout. Not so great time of 10:23. My dip pullup station is not sturdy enough for kipping and I don't know how any way. Had to go down to single pullups way too early in the first two rounds. Might have been a good idea to sub out the pullups in the warmup when doing this workout. First time doing Fran, so I have nowhere to go but up.....actually down.

I had a great day today. I walked the dogs this morning, quick walk. After work, I took the dogs for a 2.5 mile walk/run, mostly walking but some run intervals. Then I did my NRLW workout.

CrossFit "Elizabeth"

Well not quite. Elizabeth is 21, 15, 9 of 135# cleans and ring dips. Regular dips were substituted for ring dips and 21 dips in one block is too many for me at this point, so although you are supposed to complete the full number of each exercise before moving on, I alternated within the rounds and did:

7 cleans
7 dips
7 cleans
7 dips
7 cleans
7 dips
5 cleans
5 dips
5 cleans
5 dips
5 cleans

3 cleans

Still, even with that I had to rest-pause a the third set of dips in rounds 1 and 2.

Depalma, I love the way you are combining the strength work and crossfit torture. I was thinking of something similar, but couldn't think of how to work the heavy lifting in there. I really want to get some more practice in on the oly lifts, and I want to do more heavy lifting, so I may steal your idea for focusing on one lift before the workout.

Great job on your first Fran! The thrusters take it right out of you and leave nothing for the pull-ups.

How was the bike/KB/pull-up workout? The stationary bike kicks my behind, so that looks like a good one to me. I think I'd be dead on the floor just from the bike rounds!

I really liked the bike/KB/pull-up combo, really worked up a sweat and those last few KB swings on each round really required a gut check.
