This is my third officially registered MURPH CHALLENGE. Last year I was finally able to run both miles thanks to training with my PWR Sandbag in preparation for the event at 26.2 CrossFit in Rockledge, Florida. I did not use the PWR Sandbag in the challenge but wearing it in running short distances made it that much easier to simply run the mile on my own.
This year, still using my PWR Sandbag in preparation for Murph 2017 at Guns Out CrossFit in Montgomery, Alabama, I am working up to a 10 Round sequence of 10-Ring Rows ( modified pull-ups), 20 Push-ups (modified to a bar about 36 inches off the ground), and 30 Air Squats with a 400 meter row at the beginning of each round. I am rowing due to a broken toe.
It is impractical to wear the sandbag while rowing. Taking it off and putting it back on costs me some time, but when I do the MURPH it is without the weight vest anyway so no matter.
Truly I hope my hard work pays off this year and that my toes will be healed to do well enough on the runs to drop my time from last year. It would thrill me to significantly put in a much better time than last year!
