Is a year past more important than the next hour to come?

What a special day to be participating in the '31 Heros' workout. All athletes did an awesome job on this WOD today, Cheryl's climbing rope now WITH a footlock on the boot! Amazing! Both the 6am & 8:30am classes performed the 31 Heroes workout today. This workout was a big one, all the teams did amazing and worked together to complete as many rounds as possible in 31 minutes. This WOD can be performed as a fundraising WOD which we'll participate in the future. Good times were had by all, and we're fortunate we can perform this workout in honor of fallen soldiers as remembrance.

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.
Score is your total # of reps
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.
