Memorial Day....Murph.....smh

Okay....I did it.  I went and did the workout 'Murph'.  Sweet mother.  I wanted to die on that floor.  I thought I was going to throw- up TWICE!!!!  But the good news.  I finished and didn't throw up!  SUCCESS!

So you are sitting there going, what is Murph, Jen!?  :)  Well, I am kinda jibbery today so I will tell ya! (jibbery isn't a word is it?)

"Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient, died on June 28, 2005 at the age of 29 while serving in Afghanistan.  He diligently trained his body using a favorite workout which has been dubbed the "Murph".  To honor the memories of Lt. Michael Murphy and all who have sacrificed their lives in military service, the non-profit organization, Memorial Day Murph, was created. The Memorial Day Murph attracts people across America and has become a new Memorial Day tradition for fitness enthusiasts.  Participants complete the same workout that Lt. Michael Murphy loved so much as a tribute to him and to all fallen servicemen."  (murph info link

OKAY...NOW....push-ups and the row machine...doing those two things, make me want to spew....everywhere.  I finished it....52:33  I was hoping for 45 minutes, but I had to chill.  It was 85 and man alive....it was HOT!    There is nothing like a coach yelling in the background, you can do it!  While you are sitting on your knees saying, please don't upchuck....not now..not now....  gulp-...please don't.  Yeah, it was like that.  Just being real.  

I didn't go...as you can see why.  I am recovering.  Nicely I might add.  No pain, just good squat, arm, shoulder pains!

Do something good today! and NO I didn't proof it.....smh.  This week is busy and I need to get into Crossfit at least 3 more times!  SMH....goals!  :)  Need to post more pics.
