MetCon – Fran:
And so the sun sets on our strength bias cycle. I know few of you are sad to see it go; nonetheless, it was a good time had by all. I think. We will revisit it somewhere down the line, I’m sure. And when that day comes, I will face your curses and blasphemes.
Fran was strategically chosen today for a couple of reasons. Foremost, it is a nasty workout with what are fairly heavy thrusters for most of you – so it fits perfectly in to our strength bias phase. But it was also picked to prove a point to some of you. The point is you guys are fatigued. We have been building up residual fatigue with this program. There was no way around it. We also gained a lot of strength, power, stamina, and endurance. This cycle was highly effective for a lot of you newcomers, as well as beneficial to the veterans who hadn’t focused much on strength lately.
Several of you didn’t believe the fatigue was there though. Fran was chosen to prove to you it is. When we repeat this workout (soon), your times will have improved drastically because you will be fresh. Although, “fresh” is a relative term – you may be a wee bit fatigued from whatever malevolent MetCon we do prior.
I hate to see her go, but I love to watch her walk away,
