Another one for the records, so get your logbooks ready.  Fran has somehow become the benchmark workout for CrossFitters to measure themselves against.  Why?  I have no idea.  It's fast, powerful, and exhausting, but in my opinion – it doesn't reflect the true depth of a CrossFitter.  A better case can be made for a three workout measuring stick: Fran, the CrossFit Total, and Cindy.  You know what two of these are… maybe you'll find out what the third is soon.

Today is the start of our new schedule!  Post your thoughts. 

Today is Dan's last day for a few months.  He is going to spend the next bunch of months making the most of life by traveling throughout South America.  We wish you the best Dan – make the most out of this opportunity.  We'll be looking forward to your return.  Your enthusiasm towards CF will be missed in the gym.

    Dan, or should I say, Danimal.
    You are the perfect example of applying intensity in each workout. I hope the people in South America are ready for the Danimal. You will be sorely missed.
    ps. bring back some alpaca fur.

  2. Joylyn :

    Dan–I expect to see some pictures of you doing handstands and muscle-ups in the southern hemisphere for us. That grin of yours and your infective enthusiasm is going to be missed, come home to Verve safe.
    Thanks for leaving your wonderful girlfriend though, she’s a powerhouse!

  3. Danimal :

    ah man, you guys are the best!!!!! As excited as I am to out and about, I’m really sad that I’ll be missing Verve; its workouts, torn hands and mostly the people. I’ll definitely get some pictures doing some overhead squats with my backpack or something. 😀
    As far as Fran is concerned, THIS is the workout I’ve been waiting for. Right now my P.R. (which I’m proud of is 4:48). I predict some pain this morning, as that short 5 minutes seems to leave me destroyed for about a half hour afterwards. I can’t wait!

  4. stef :

    4:48?!?! Please, I’ll do that in my sleep. PSYCHE, fran scares me (and yes, I just said that!) Danimal, wtf is up with that time? When you’re back, we’ll then workout together so I won’t feel like such a pansy with more cf under my belt. lol

  5. Joylyn :

    As rx’d 7:51. Woohoo! Good day for me.
