Every Memorial Day, fitness enthusiasts and newcomers around the country and across the globe prepare to honor fallen Navy SEAL Michael P. Murphy and many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice by completing “The Murph Challenge.” The grueling workout consists of a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and another one-mile run. SourceShe was going to write a guest-post for me about the experience but all she has done since finishing has been to take a shower, limp around and ask "What is for dinner?"
|Bella took the Murph Challenge at Charlotte's Aleve Fitness Center because they have pull-up bars and a marked, half-mile path for running. Obviously, a one-mile run is two trips around the trail.|
It was her first "Murph" and she finished in 1:23.
She partitioned the workout, which is allowed.. She broke up the grueling ordeal into twenty sets of five pull-ups, ten pushups and fifteen squats. But she didn't stop and she didn't complain while doing it.
My contribution was to drive her over there. She wasn't sure she would be fit to drive afterward.
