CrossFit: The Murph Challenge
The results are not final but as of this posting I am sitting in 4th place worldwide for Women’s RX times for the Murph WOD on Memorial Day weekend.
I’m happy with where I placed (I was 9th last year), but since it wasn’t my best time ever on Murph, I’m a bit disappointed.
Next year, it will be a whole different story…
Murph is getting easier and easier for me. I’ve now done it once a month for 2 months and already it’s not all that bad.
Murph is legendary among CrossFit workouts. Every CrossFitter knows it and has probably done it at least once. It’s traditionally performed on Memorial Day to remember Lieutenant Michael Murphy who was a Navy SEAL killed in action fighting for our freedoms. It’s about remembering all of our veterans who give the greatest sacrifice for future generations. A scholarship foundation has been set up in his honor. Find out more HERE
My stressors have definitely gone up. You expose the body to more and more and it adapts amazingly well. I’ve upped my game, and it has helped my confidence tremendously.
It started last week where I decided to do my own programming. It really started before that about a year ago when I decided to do my own strength and accessory work. But it’s just been recently I’ve upped it a notch–a big notch. There’s just so much to do I find myself constantly at it whenever I get the chance.
Ah, so many goals….
So little time…
