Front squats felt great. Clean and jerk…not so much today. 4:04 is my best Fran time to date, so I guess I shouldn’t be too unhappy with my time. But I am. I was hoping that I had gotten faster. Never really got my breathing slowed down enough after Fran to nail a decent clean and jerk. I had a great week otherwise and I am really pleased with my overall progress since I started following the competition programming from CF Invictus.
