Day 146: Memorial Weekend "Murph"

CrossFit Hero Workouts are named after fallen warriors. 
On October 18th, 2005 on the home page,Murph was posted. Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy was a CrossFitter and loved this particular workout. CrossFit decided to honor him by naming the workout after him. Now hundreds of thousands of people have performed this workout and know of his story. Since then there have been more workouts named after fallen soldiers, firefighters and law enforcement officers.

Many people decided that doing this workout was not hard enough on its own...some wore gas masks, some wore weight vests, some carried barbells on the run, and more. 

I decided to do the runs with my gas mask, and then do strict pull-ups.
