Monday 16, November 2009

Today we had a HERO WOD of a new sort - still a ass kicker of a workout, still a embrace the suck kinda day, still a hard as nails kinda WOD. The difference is, this one came from CrossFit Football as an honor to a fallen soldier.....

"Winchester"

5 x
30 overhead walking lunges with 60kg
200m sprint
30 kettlebell swings with 32kg


1st LT Ron Winchester - In 2000, Ron played in Navy's biggest football game of the season, against Army - and his best friend. There were no hard feelings when Navy beat Army 30-28. "He was like my brother. We had a lot of fun together," said former Army defensive tackle and pal Doug Larson. "He was independent, but we were both dependent on each other." Winchester, 25, of Rockville Center, N.Y., was killed Sept. 3 by a roadside bomb in Iraq’s Anbar province. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 2001 and was on his second tour in Iraq. "Ron was a very gregarious type of individual who was always in the middle of things," said his father, also named Ronald. "He was a true leader, always respected by his peers and dedicated to what he was doing." Winchester also is survived by his mother, Marianna. "When he came home last time, he sat in the dining room telling stories," family friend Maureen Chiaramonte said. "He said, 'Aunt Mo, you know what it's like. You get a choice to sit on the bench or play the game. I don't want to sit on the bench."

29:40 was 30:40 on clock but the supid power guy showed up and needed me to unlock the tires - and it took a minute. LOL

36kg walking lunges = brutal
24kg kettlebell = great compared to those damn lunges.

Chandler was impressive with those lunges!!!
