Today in honor of all who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, I did the “Murph” workout. This is one of the Crossfit Hero WODs and it honors Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. Although, I haven’t done Crossfit in years, I love the challenge and sentiment of this workout. It was my first time attempting it so I was admittedly a bit nervous to give it a shot.

Marty did it with me but started a bit ahead of me since we only have one pull up bar. He crushed it (as expected) and I finished a few minutes later. Okay, maybe it was more than “a few” minutes. Crossfit purists will tell you that “Murph” is to be done with a weighted vest but I was just happy to finish more pull ups and push ups then I’ve ever done in a single day, let alone a single workout. The squats were even harder than I thought they would be and running after them reminded me of how you feel transitioning from the bike to the run in a triathlon. Overall, this was a good one. I see why Murph liked it so much and I’ll definitely be feeling it tomorrow!

My BG management was okay today. I started a bit high and had the tail end of my breakfast insulin active when I started. I wasn’t 100% sure if the short runs or the anxiety of trying something new would spike my BGs before I started, so I didn’t reduce my basal before hand and didn’t eat anything until I started the push ups. I wasn’t trusting my sensor completely, so I checked with a blood test and got a unicorn at 85 which was fun. At that point, I had dropped enough that I knew I would need something for the squats and second run. After I was done, my BGs leveled out nicely right around 100. Now, off to celebrate the holiday with my favorites!

Thank you to the service members and their family members, who have sacrificed for our country.
