Craig attended the Cross Fit Olympic Lifting Certification in Vista this weekend!
Today’s wod comes from CrossFit Iowa, in memory of Sean Wissink, Des Moines Police Dept., recently killed in the line of duty:
The Sean 400 meter (which means 800 meters)
50 wall ball shots
50 push ups
50 kettlebell swings
50 box jumps
50 double unders (or 250 singles)
“Sean was an avid CrossFitter and as team leader of the Des Moines PD Metro S.T.A.R. Tactical Unit, Sean had used CrossFit as a PT standard with his team. One of the jokes that goes about Sean was that he had measured out 400 meters in one direction to do a 400 meter run but made his guys run there and back making it 800 meters. They call it the “Sean 400″. He was notorious for his boistrous laugh. Sean was a very tall lean fit guy. He had just helped us arrest numerous suspects the night before he was killed.”
