Movemeber – It’s for Charity Man!

This morning’s Crossfit workout was rough: Murph. Which is:

  • 1 Mile run
  • 100 Pull ups
  • 200 Push ups
  • 300 Squats
  • 1 Mile run

And if that’s not bad enough, it’s all done with a 10kg weight vest! At least you can partition the gymnastic moves as you see fit. Most people do Cindy rounds: 5, 10, 15 of the 3.

Well that’s the “as prescribed” workout. I’ve seriously neglected my training this year and am not nearly as fit as I was a year or 2 ago. Fortunately Crossfit scales to everyone’s ability, so I did 1/2 Murph with no weight vest. Even that still took 38 mins 11 seconds and I suspect it’ll be a few days yet before my pecks forgive me the 100 push ups (press ups if you’re English that is).

Certainly I want to be on form for Grace tomorrow. I’m planning on popping down to Crossfit Tameside for the Barbells for Boobs Charity event (Grace is an all olympic lifting workout and it’s going to be done for Breast Cancer).

Not to leave the boys out, November is being officially renamed to Movember in which, in the aid of Prostate Cancer, members of Crossfit3D will seeing who can grow the best moustache possible in one month! Do you reckon I could manage this in a month?

I’ve not had any facial hair for years, so it should be fun. I plan on doing a daily photo and stitching it all together as an animated gif when I’m done. Tee hee. It might end up more like this though, leather gear is mandatory of course:
