Murph Prep begins!
Category : Weekly Blog
Happy Spring, Jabletes!
I hope you are all enjoying the gorgeous weather we’ve been having! For those of you that traveled during spring break, looks like you’ve all had a fantastic time on warm tropical islands and welcome back to beautiful Seattle! I’m sure all of you, hopefully, took some time to relax and maybe do a few workouts on your trip 😉 We all have the best intentions but sometimes it’s nice to just get away from it all and enjoy the moment with your families. Or you did so much walking, swimming, surfing, etc that you DID get a great workout no matter if you were in the gym or outside! Coming back to the gym after vacation can be hard, sometimes. It can be harder if you’ve taken a week off so be sure to take it easy on yourself this next week! Dial it back a bit, a teeny bit lower weight for instance, may be just what you need to keep yourself from being too sore and unable to move the next day! Those of you who did not travel, you sure worked hard the last few weeks at Jab Crossfit! Be sure to mention that to your fellow tanned athletes 😉
Starting this week we will begin prep for Murph! For those of you new to Crossfit, Murph is a hero wod that everyone in the Crossfit community does on Memorial Day in honor of Lt Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in Afghanistan and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Murph is tough, long, a mental and physical challenge that we have always done as one big group on Memorial Day. In the coming weeks before the end of May we will begin prepping for this big wod by breaking it down and slowly building the run, pull ups, pushups and squats until we get to the full workout. Believe me, it’s worth the prep and so great to come together as a community on Memorial Day!
Lastly, I want to congratulate Coach Ashley on getting her Level-1 cert late last month! If you see her, ask her how her certification went!
Keep up the good work, everyone!
