We did "Schmalls" today. WOW!

Today my box did "Schmalls," a new hero WOD that was posted to main site. WOW was that hard and took me 43 mins.

Although it was tough, I'm proud of myself for finishing. I didn't RX, but I was able to RX everything put the HSPU'S and the one-legged squats. I did this without whining and without the urge to quit. This poor guy gave his life and I think it is great to honor him through the CF community.

I have been CF'ing for less than a year and I feel like every WOD I've done since June of last year allowed me to finish strong today!

That looks like a really tough one! It would certainly take me a while too with 100 burpees and 80 pullups in there. Sadly I would have to not do it Rx because of the pistols

I did this in the home gym this morning too and I was spent at the end. I did the 800m runs but scaled the rest of the WOD to 70% reps both rounds and finished in 32:45.

Can't wait till I can start Rx'ing WODs.

Re: We did "Schmalls" today. WOW!

Its funny that this post popped up today. Because I was just watching the video "Know A Hero" on Crossfit Journal about this WOD (Justin E. Schmalstieg). It was actually a really touching video, because we should all push ourselves on these hero WOD to show our respect.

Make sure you guys check the video out:

I think when ever I am about to do a Hero WOD, I am going to look up who that hero was; and show my respect for them.

Brian - I try and do the same. I also try and remind my fellow athletes that this guy died, and we need to push ourselves in his honor. In the end, we are going back to work or to our life, and this guy died for us all so suck it up and work hard!

Hey man, the fact that you finished should give you pride. It's not easy by any stretch of the imagination. Good job!

We did it a couple of weeks ago and I thought I was going to die, but being a former Marine myself, I had to gut it out for him. He gave his life and I got to come back home to my family.
