A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday and Memorial Day! Hope you had a great long weekend doing something fun. I spend the weekend getting some work done, meal prepping, trying out a new restaurant, and going to Barton Springs. All fun things in my book.
This weekend marks the day where everyone in the CrossFit community does the workout Murph. It is actually one of my favorite workouts as it has a bunch of things I love – running, pull-ups, push-ups, and air squats. You do it in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy who died in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. It was one of his favorites and it’s a great tribute to him and everyone that has served for our country.
As much as I love this workout and have done it a few years in a row, I didn’t do it today. We had the opportunity to go and talk with someone about puppies that we are looking at so that was put on the forefront. Bummed to have missed it, but sometimes you have to put other things before working out. I’ve been a slacking on my working out, but am planning on stepping it up as I miss all those happy endorphins and feel like my body is losing some strength. Already started last week with 4 CrossFit workouts which is a lot more than I’ve done in a week in a long time!
