Week 16 was a phenomenal week with many great achievements and I completely annihilated any past records on number of Squats I did this week, that’s for sure!
But…For this week (which I am posting the wrap-up on Memorial Day Monday instead of Sunday) is reserved for “The Murph”.
The most grueling workout I’ve ever done in my entire life.
…And it’s a salute to Lt. Michael Murphy who lost his life in Afghanistan and this was his favorite workout.
Thankful to have the opportunities I do and like most of the CrossFit world I wanted to honor Lt. Murphy by participating in this which is my first time.
The workout is simple…
1 Mile run
300 Air Squats
1 Mile Run
Once you finish the first mile you are trying to complete the middle portion before you finish the workout with the final mile. My strategy was breaking up into 20 rounds of 5, 10, and 15, respectively to batch this and try to accomplish in under 1 hour.
By round 9 I was feeling toasted but my adrenaline kicked in and feeling the motivation of my peers I grinded til the end.
The folks out there that actually do this with a vest on and complete in an ungodly short time is impressive.
5️⃣8️⃣:4️⃣2️⃣ was my time and couldn’t have been more pleased with it since my entire body was in pain!
Congrats to all who participated and pushed themselves past their comfort zone to achieve success!
The next few workouts should seem simple compared to that!!!
Til next time, keep Grindin’
