Did "Whitten" hero WOD this morning at 8am with Grant...

Five rounds for time of:
22 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood
22 Box jump, 24 inch box
Run 400 meters
22 Burpees
22 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball

We haven't marked our run distances yet since our recent move to the new facility so we rowed 400m in place of the 400m run. I hate having to modify WODs, ecspecially hero WODs but time was limited so we had to make due. The 2000m of running would have no doubt added to my time. My time today with 2000m of rowing was 39:39. This workout was everything you expect out of a hero WOD- it was both physically and mentally challenging. By round 3, I think I had already experienced most of the stages of grieving...Denial, anger, bargaining, etc...Never really reached the acceptance phase. Looking forward to doing this one again- except next time as RX with the running.

Army Captain Dan Whitten, 28, of Grimes, Iowa, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, died February 2, 2010, when enemy forces in Zabul, Afghanistan, attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device. Whitten is survived by his wife, Starr Whitten, his mother, Jill Whitten, his father, Dan Whitten, and his sister, U.S. Army Captain Sarah Whitten.
