Do you remember the fist time you ever saw Charlton Heston…was it in Ben Our, or the original Planet of th e Apes…(you damn dirty apes) he screamed.  How about as Moses in The Ten Commandments….remember some of those commandments….though shall squat to below 90 degrees, though shall count thy own reps accurately, though shall clean and jerk with correct form…when you think it through, good old Chuck was such a leader….

WAIT, WAIT…whats that? Today’s WOD is not Heston?  But, but he’s a Hero? No?  Oh so sorry…I understand…TODAY’s WOd is HELTON, not Heston


3 rounds for time

800m RUN

Sorry for the misunderstanding.  You’ll be heroes when you finish.

As was this true hero…
