Jag 28

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Mark Forester, 29, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, assigned to the 21st Special Tactics Squadron, based in Pope Air Force Base, North Carolina, died on September 29, 2010, while conducting combat operations in Uruzgan province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his parents Ray and Pat, and siblings Terri, David, Joseph and Thad.

For time:
Run 800 meters
28 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood
28 Strict Pull-ups
28 Kettlebell clean and jerk, 2 pood each
28 Strict Pull-ups
Run 800 meters

This one was TOUGH!  I did fine on everything but the double kettlebell clean and jerk which I had to scale to double 53s and that was still TOUGH.

Glad to get this one done and honor this hero.  It hits home since I went to University of Alabama and I was just hunting around Tuscaloosa AND the TIDE just rolled over Washington.

U.S. Army Capt. Jennifer M. Moreno, of San Diego, California, died Oct. 6, 2013, in Zhari District, Afghanistan, when enemy forces attacked her unit with an improvised explosive device. The 25-year-old was assigned to Madigan Army Medical Center on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state. Moreno is survived by her mother, Marie V. Cordero; sisters, Jearaldy Moreno and Yaritza Cordova; and brother, Ivan F. Moreno.

20:00 AMRAP:

20 Overhead Squats, 45 lbs

20 Back Squats, 45 lbs

Run, 400 m

I liked this one.  Keith Gray absolutely killed this one.  He has been on the Zone for a while now and has dropped 10-15 pounds.  HIs performance lately has been outstanding. He recently won a pullup contest by getting over 40 which was a PR for him by quite a few reps.  His running has been solid and his performance on today's workout was super impressive.  I did 5 full rounds plus 20 OHS and 20 Back Squats.  Mike Drew managed to get back off the run just under the wire to get 6 rounds even and Keith finished 6 rounds plus 19 reps! 

Good work to the whole group, but especially Keith.
