Tuesday, June 1

Today was our Memorial Day WOD, a special way to honor those who have sacrificed their lives in the service of others. The chosen WOD was "Murph." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_P._Murphy

The WOD as written is:
1 mile run
100 Pullups
200 Pushups
300 Squats
1 mile run

We modified it for our class to :
800m run 800m run
50 Pullups 35 Pullups
100 Pushups 70 Pushups
150 Squats 105 Squats
800m run 800m run

Most of the class opted for the 35 version but three did 1/2 Murph. I am proud of everyone who took on this WOD but especially Joseph. Part way through the workout it started to get the better of him. He had to go outside to get some fresh air and a bit of a rest though he wouldn't quit. He finished in just over 30 minutes and that was awesome. He could have stopped when he wasn't feeling well and that would have been OK but in the spirit of "Murph" he persevered and triumphed. Great work Joseph.
