More Murph Prep!

Category : Weekly Blog

Hello Jabletes!

We hope everyone was feeling great (if not a wee bit sore) after our first Murph Prep last week!  You’ll be seeing a variation of Murph once a week up until Memorial Day when we will all come together and do the full Murph Hero WOD.  All of the running, pull ups, push ups and squats in the coming weeks will help prepare you for the big one.  We are excited!  Coming together as a community to support each other, encourage and cheer for one another is a great way to pay respect to Navy Lieutenant  Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005.  This was his favorite WOD and he nicknamed it “Body Armor” and Crossfit’s main site says it “will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is”.  It’s a tough one, most certainly, but with lots of practice will get our bodies ready.  Keep up on the hand care!  I’m sure most of you saw the bloody hand post on our facebook page last week with tips on callus care, if you missed it take a moment to read and please do take care of those hands!  If you have any questions please ask your coach!

Keep moving!
