To honor those who have given their lives for our freedom we will be doing “Hero” WOD’s all week! There will be options for scaling so please don’t let a hard looking WOD be an excuse to “Cherry Pick”!
In teams of two, with only one partner working at a time, complete two rounds of the following for time:
50 Overhead Squats 135/95#
Run 1 mile
*You may split up the run however you choose, including running it together.
U.S. Marine Corps Captain Brandon “Bull” Barrett, 27, of Marion, Indiana, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, was killed on May 5, 2010, while supporting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his parents Cindy and Brett Barrett, his sisters Ashley and Taylor Barrett, his brother Brock Barrett, and his grandmother Carmen Johnson.
“I attribute my success to this – I never gave, or took, any excuse.”
The terrifying thing about excuses, is that it blinds us to our next move. If we excuse or try to justify a misstep, we at a subconscious level tell ourselves that this is “out of my control”. That this was a fluke, or a chance event, and there’s nothing I could do differently next time.
On the flip side, owning what happens is not about beating ourselves up or throwing pity parties. It’s solely so that we can open our vision on where to go next. To see the lesson in front of us.
Excuses are contagious, and horribly damaging. Let’s take the opposite road, as growth begins with responsibility.
