I did my second attempt at Murph on Monday. The good news is I can finally walk again Thursday morning. Tuesday and Wednesday were not fun. It took me 69:30 to finish which was disappointing. I thought I would be able to do it less than an hour.
Sunday’s dinner choice was bad. Chinese food was wrong. It was steak, chicken, shrimp and vegetables over noodles. Breakfast was a couple of chicken breasts. I did not have any energy. I felt wiped out after the first mile and the first round or two. Definitely could have made better food choices.
Over Thought the Rounds:
I decided on splitting up the pull ups, push ups, and squats into ten rounds of 10, 20, and 30. After the second round I looked at the clock and realized it would take me 50 minutes to finish the rounds. That’s when my friend doubt came knocking!
Next thing I know I am trying to find a better place on the floor to do squats, as if gravity would be weaker in one part of the gym as opposed to the other. Meanwhile the clock is ticking away, and I am trying to figure out why I am doing this to myself.
The last mile was pretty much walking. Running was not really an option. Jogging was a stretch.
Next time I will eat better, and stick to the plan when it comes to breaking down the reps.
