What is a HERO WOD?
CrossFit Hero WODs are designed to be some of the most intense workouts that you could experience. They are intended to be performed with intense effort, in honor of our fallen Heroes. CrossFit recommends that you don’t think to your self, I can’t do that or it looks too hard. Instead focus on what you can do, scale where needed, and think about the Hero that has given his/her all for our freedom. Honor these Heroes with your best effort.
On Memorial Day, CrossFit Solstice completed Memorial Day Murph. Below is a description of the workout. We all worked hard and definitely gave our best effort. It was one of my favorite workouts so far. The last mile felt very similar to triathlon training :) Here is a video honoring Lt. Michael P. Murphy.
