On Monday, August 19th, 2019, I decided to embark on a 30-day fitness challenge. For the next 30 days, I would do a Murph workout every single day: 1-mile run, 300 air squats, 200 push-ups, 100 pull-ups, followed by another 1-mile run.
All in all, this amounted to 60 miles, 9000 air squats, 6000 push-ups, and 3000 pull-ups.
I started this fitness challenge while juggling all of my responsibilities as a senior in college applying for the next chapter in life. There were days when I got home at 4:30 AM. There were days when I had to wake up at 4:30 AM. Somehow, through it all, I stuck with my commitment and followed through.
Though the Murph left me feeling physically exhausted, it also helped me get back on my feet. It was my way of taking action and moving forward in what felt like a static chapter of life.
The "transformation" was not so much physical, but mental. I learned a lot about myself, my capabilities, my thoughts, and - strangely enough - my fears and motivations. Don't get me wrong, though. It freaking sucked. Here's the story of my journey over the last 30 days. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ For those of you who aren't familiar, the Murph workout is a Crossfit WOD (workout of the day) that's typically done on Memorial Day to honor late Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael Murphy.
