The running alone or the clean and jerk alone would both make good workouts. This is why we have hero archive: to take two perfectly reasonable archive and turn them into one unreasonable WOD for the purpose of making you think about the challenges we face in life and the challenges thousands of brave men and women face everyday. What I think is interesting about this WOD is that there is enough running that even someone who is not great at clean and jerk might still be able to catch up to the big strong oly lifter.
