This is what I got done this morning before 8 am today.  The rest of the day is going to be a piece of cake.

5:20 am - Out of bed without hitting snooze

6:00-7:00 - Completed legendary CrossFit workout “Murph”.  See below to what Murph is.

7:00-8:00 - Conference call with people on the other side of the planet.

7:25-8:00 - Took the boys to daycare.

What did you get accomplished before 8 am today?

What is the CrossFit “Murph” workout? - From –

“For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on 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.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.”

I had to sub 2000 meter row for the 1 mile run because it was too cold/dark to do it this morning.  The pushups were also done in 1 - 200 block because it’s day 1 of the push-up challenge.  The squats and pullups were broken up in chunks.  Completed in 59 minutes flat.  I’ll take it!

    Wow - very impressive and also guilt inducing. Maybe I’ll start with 10 push-ups tomorrow. :)
