That day I rowed 6800 meters

I have claustrophobia. OK, maybe it’s control issues. I don’t know, but I do know that I get really sweaty and feel like I can’t breath in certain situations. For example, elevators.

And it’s a Hero WOD, meaning it’s named for a Hero.

Hi Fran. No Regrets.

If you CrossFit, you’ve either heard of the infamous workout ‘Fran’ or you’ve done it and reveled in all her glorious pain.

When I was still working out in my garage gym 2 years ago, I attempted Fran with a scaled weight of 45lbs. (so just the bar)
