This is the reason:
I eat too many of these when they are around the office and right now, they are everywhere. It would be okay if I ate just one or two. The problem is that I can’t stop at just one or two. Instead I grab one or two everything I walk past the candy bowl, which could be four or five times a day. It’s like the bowl and the candy bars have a sweet, little, evil voice calling my name and seducing me with there yumminess. It can’t be something like this calling for me:
While I was looking for a picture to attach to this post, I found this:
31 Heroes 2013 – August 3, 2013 at a Crossfit Affiliate Near You.
AMRAP 31 minutes (As Many Reps As Possible)
8 Thrusters (155/105#)
6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
11 Box Jumps (30/24″)
This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.
I am a little uncertain about what it will look like and how much I will be able to complete, but what have I got to lose by trying? Maybe a quarter inch off my ass. 🙂
Here is the purpose of this WOD: 31 Hero’s WOD
This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team. In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.
Wish me luck!
