There are a lot of different things you might feel before an undertaking a workout like Murph. We set this up for May 1, sometime around November(?) so we all saw it coming. The general thought process behind that was that everyone would be months in and although it would be a challenge, for the most part we’d be ready. I believe that to be true of each and every athlete at C3. We haven’t really done any specific training for this, but the ready state of the broad, general, inclusive fitness you forge when you train with CrossFit for a number of months means that if someone says to you, “OK, today we’re going to do 100 Pull Ups, 200 Push Ups, 300 Air Squats, and lets put a 1mi run on both ends of it. 3-2-1 go!” You get excited about it! The average person would probably get dizzy just thinking about it. But you are no longer the average person. You are up for the challenge, you are ready to test your fitness against something you never thought you could do until now. “You are stronger than you think you are” isn’t just a clever slogan we use-tomorrow we get to live it.
1 mile run
100 pull ups
200 push ups
1 mile run
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.
