FRAN and Some Good Competition

This morning was a good training session with Doug.  We got started with some strength and then I finally got the nerve to try FRAN again....and it brought back memories.  We warmed p with heavy Thrusters:

1 Rep Thruster
205 x 1
215 x 1
225 x 1
235 x 1
245 x 1
255 x 1 (FAILED)

This did not feel that heavy but my shoulder and upper chest were toast and the lock out was the toughest part.  I am feeling I may be able to get 275 not which would be a big jump since Regionals where i did 245.  Next was the my lady friend:

Thrusters 95#
Pull ups

My time

I taped this and I was feeling good but at the end of my 15's I could feel my forearms giving out (same feeling from when I fell)  when i jumped up for my 9's I decided to play it safe and not push through the forearm fatigued and dropped after 4, the did 3, and finally 2.  I was on pace to beat my 2:10.....and am happy for that....but for the first time since the break I wanted to just finish!

Next I came up with something on the fly....and it blew out my posterior chain:

Deadlift 275#
KBS 2 Pood

My time

It was hard to decide what to do since my hands were shredded from yesterdays weighted pull ups and FRAN (Doug PR's by 5 sec which was awesome....he can get sub 3 easy).  I really took my time on this WOD because my hands were so tender.  I was able to go unbroken on the deads until the 9's where I broke 5-4.  We then ended with a WOD from Bryn that Doug would give me a good push at:

For Time
50 DU's
40 DU's
30 DU's
20 DU's
10 DU's

My time

He would have been right with me except he tripped on his doubles right after we started.  Still nice to know if I missed he would catch me.  Good quick WOD.
