Today, our own Coach Deifel goes in for heart surgery in Cleveland, OH. Because we at the 307 want to wish him a successful surgery & speedy recovery, we have decided to deviate from his inspired programming. This WOD was created by Kelly Jo following Josh’s cardiac arrest on May 27 of last year. You’ll notice that the rep scheme reflects that date, while the number of rounds, 3, is in honor of the apple of Josh’s eye, his 3 year old daughter Emma. It also includes some of the movements that Josh shines at in the box. Because Coach Deifel is always encouraging us to be precise in our movements and to compete only with ourselves, we have decided to honor his coaching philosophy by turning off the clock for this WOD. Instead of thinking only about beating the person next to you by having the fastest time, think about honoring every movement with full range of motion and about pushing to do better in every rep.  So let’s get after it & leave it all in the box! Hurry back, Josh!

(Please post your favorite Deifel-isms & other encouraging words for Josh to comments!)
