*HERO WOD SUNDAY!

**Today's WOD will be slightly longer than usual, please plan for the WOD to end a little passed 9:30.

"Murph Demarcation"

Teams of 2
1000m Row
800m Run
50 Pull-Ups
100 Push-Ups
150 Air Squats
800m Run
30 Pull-Ups
60 Push-Ups
90 Air Squats
800m Run
20 Pull-Ups
40 Push-Ups
60 Air Squats
800m Run
1000m row

Optional: Wear a Weight Vest (20/14 lb), except on the row.

Partners run together. For everything else (row, push-ups, pull-ups, and air squats) one partner works at a time; break up the reps between partners as needed.

This partner-style take on the infamous "Murph" Hero WOD is made up of the same number of reps of pull-ups (100), push-ups (200), and air squats (300), as well as a cumulative 2 miles of running - but with a prescribed descending rep scheme and the run broken into 800 meter lengths. And, to top it all off, add a 1,000-meter row (without the vest) at the beginning and end.

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, NY, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28, 2005. A United States Navy SEAL officer, Murphy was awarded the U.S. military's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart.

The "Demarcation" title refers to the action of fixing the boundary or limits of something..."separation, distinction, differentiation. It was a signal to me that I was ready, I had done the work, I just needed to toe the start line and do what I do best."
