Today’s HERO week WOD is Jerry. In CrossFit speak it is purely monostructural, meaning today we will not pick up any weights, but rather focus on the engine’s endurance. After the workouts this week, I’m sure you’re ready for a ‘weight-less’ day.
Jerry is purely and simply a couplet of two movements designed to tax your cardiovascular endurance; for time you will run one mile, row 2,000 meters, and run one (more) mile.
Do you cherry pick your workouts? Do you see things you ‘don’t like’ and just don’t do them? (Burpees come to mind don’t they? You know who you are). To get better at a thing, you must do that thing. It’s called specificity. If you REALLLLLLYYYY don’t want to do that thing, it is probably the thing you need to do most. So, come in and strap on your running shoes. It’s go time.
Sgt Major Jerry Dwayne Patton, 40, died on 15 October 2008 during High Altitude High Opening (HAHO) training while assigned to Army USSOCOM preparing for deployment to Afghanistan. Jerry is survived by his wife Molly and his sons Chad, Cody, Chase and Connor.
