"Murph" (puppies) - Day 55

Well, it's more push-ups and pull-ups today!! Should work out the kinks pretty well with this one and continue the burn:).

Warm-Up:
5 min. jump rope
20 ball sit-ups
10 KTE's
10, 15# KB Swings
10 burpees


MURPH (puppies):
For time -
1/2 mile run (@7mph on treadmill)
35 jumping pull-ups
70 push-ups
120 squats (BW only)
1/2 mile run (@6mph and 3.5mph alternating)

Time: 31:06:37

Whew... this was tough. I was at 11:05 after the run & pull-ups. I started out doing jumping pull-ups, did 5, then realized I was never going to make it to 35 like that, so I used two bands for the next 25, then finished out with 5 jumping pull-ups. My arms felt like jelly:). The push-ups were the toughest (I knew this going in, though). Tried to do 7 rounds of 10, but after the first 2 rounds, I was at 5 per round, then it went to 3, then I was lucky to get 2 in a row. Finished push-ups with the clock at 17:48. Squats were done in reps of 12. Finished them at 25:32. Last run was a run/walk combo. I felt like I was willing my legs to move:).


Side note: I picked up "Lone Survivor" by Marcus Luttrell at the library today. So far it is EXCELLENT!

Not sure if you know, but for Murph you can break up the order that you do the pullups/pushups/squats in. I know a lot of people do it "Cindy-Style": 5 pullups, 10 pushups, 15 squats, repeat. Makes it a little more manageable. :P

Great blog, keep up the good work!

Yeah, I wanted to test my mental toughness a little with this one. I think next time I'll partition the reps:).

Thanks for checking out my blog! :)
