I held off doing Fran until today because 1) I didn't have a good pullup bar until then, and 2) Fran scares the hell out of me.
The last time I did this one was in October, and it sucked then as well. I was down for about 20 minutes, and wasn't able to get a second WOD in this evening.
But, there were a couple good things - I finally got under the 3:00 mark! I squeaked under it, but I did it.
Also, I know that my chin was clearing the bar. I know this because on the second set of pullups, I hit my chin on the bar on the way down. Yes, I chipped a couple teeth (I really did), but at least I do know I was getting the full ROM :)
My Fran DID go better than this guy's!
