For the last 2 days, we have deviated from the standard RRL playlist and visited the 80s yesterday and the 70s today. The musical time machine is a really fun change. I find it funny to see who knows the words to certain songs and which songs trigger a memory from others.
Today, we hit up a hero workout from CrossFit called Wittman.
U.S. Army Sergeant Jeremiah Wittman, 26, of Darby, Montana, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, based out of Fort Carson, Colorado, was killed on February 13, 2010, when insurgents attacked his unit with a roadside bomb in Zhari province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his daughters Miah and Ariauna, wife Karyn, siblings Robert H., Charity, Jenell, and Natasha, father Robert, and mother Cynthia Church.
Seven rounds for time of:
1.5 pood Kettlebell swing, 15 reps
95 pound Power clean, 15 reps
15 Box jumps, 24" box
Here are the results:
Our times were around 19-25 minutes Rx with our oldest athlete, Robert, finishing in 29 minutes at Rx! Way to go Robert!! Not bad for a bunch of old dudes, but as I look through the results on the whiteboard, I am seeing tons of times that are crazy good. 12:07 is the top time...unbelievable.
I guess that is possible, but that is hard for me to comprehend. I know I could have taken a few short breaks out of my last couple of rounds, but even if I went completely unbroken with no breaks at all throughout the entire workout I don't think I could have cut more than 3 minutes off the total time.
There are some amazing athletes out there. Finishing this workout in under 15 minutes is incredible. Cheers to you.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Watch for an interview post with my friend Jonathan Hurtado who was in Goruck Selection with me and is training to do it again in Bozeman with a stop at SealFit Kokoro on the way!
