This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400 meters with a plate (45/25#). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the plate and begin their 400 meters, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

On August 6th, 2011, 31 of America’s bravest warriors gave their lives in defense of our freedom. While we’d like to leave the responsibility of announcing their names to their families & the DoD, for now we will honor them by mentioning their roles in our military.  They were 17 Navy SEALs, two Navy EOD Technicians, three Naval Special Warfare Combat Support Sailors, two Army Aviators, three Army Aircrewmen, three Air Force Special Tactics Operators, and one Military Working Dog.

These men were sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, and friends. Not only do we thank them for their service and sacrifice, but we thank those that love them for the sacrifice they have made as well.

The 31 Americans were not the only ones that died as heroes that day. While the funds raised through the 31Heroes event will benefit the families of the men listed above, we cannot forget the sacrifice of our Afghan comrades. Seven Afghan commandos and one Afghan interpreter were also killed in action and we cannot look past their sacrifice. They too are heroes and we thank them and honor them and their families.

WOD Guidance
In today’s workout, let’s think about those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom!
With 31 minutes of continuous movement, is all about finding a way to keep moving forward. It is not about going fast, rather trying to not stop moving for the entirety of the workout.
Higher box jumps today and a weight on the barbell that is on the heavier side. Pick a weight on the bar that you are able to complete 8+ repetitions unbroken when fresh.
