    Had to do the OHS with just 65#. Still working on OHS technique, and I believe that narrowing my grip to slightly less than snatch width helped substantially.
    Otherwise, Rx, and my butterfly kipping is better. DUs were easy enough, and subbed 1600m row for running–too slippery outside with the snow!
    Overall good WOD, though all Hero WODs are sad from the very fact they exist. Rest well, Bull.

    At this point, we’re expecting to open by 7:00 and have a 7:15 WOD. However, please watch the comments. If things get worse, we will update the comments.
    For now (11:00 PM) assume the Box will be open at 7:00 AM. Comments below may overrule this assumption.
