Wheeler WOD

THE SCENE:  Dark, silent, and damp.  I thought I’d have to do this one solo but just when I was about to begin, 3 PAX came walking up the track and I rejoiced.

2100 m run

THA-THANG:   4 Rounds for time:

10 Pull ups

22 BBSUs

15 Merkins

11 Burpees

20 Squats

10 minutes were left so 2 PAX tossed a 60 lb sandbag while 2 PAX ran a lap.  Switched x 2

MARY:  Scattered throughout.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:   4 PAX, Orange Julius, Boo Peep, Hot’n’Ready, Tomb Raider

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:  20 Years of service.
MSG Joshua L Wheeler who was Killed In Action on October 22, 2015. He was a US Army Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta Master Sergeant. He served for more than 20 years and left behind a wife and four sons. MSG Wheeler “was a fan of old-school PT style workouts.”

The significance of the numbers in the workout: 21 Gun Salute; 4 Sons; 10/22/15 – Date of death; 11 Bronze Stars; 20 Years of Service.

MOLESKIN:   This was a quick one.  Use a 20 lb vest/ruck and sandbag for increased difficulty.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:  Excellent 3rd F opportunities, check the 3rd F slack channel for details.  Remember; “it’s better to give than receive”.
