Happenings-Around-Campus

Mrs. Miller’s strength and conditioning class completed the Murph Challenge 2019 before break!

Here is a ‘before’ photo

and here are the post workout photos

Mrs. Miller shared, “The scholars holding a flag sticker did the workout solo. They ran 1 mile, completed 300 squats, 200 pushups, 100 burpees (substitution for pull-ups) and then ended with another mile. Those not smiling in the last photo had finished seconds before 🙂 The Team Challenge was 1/3 of the workout.

These scholars were so inspiring! There were some tears as they learned to push beyond what they thought they were capable of. There were those that had to make a choice to change their attitude and step up to the challenge before them. Scholars cheered each other on and ran extra laps and did extra squats, etc. alongside  teammates that were struggling. There was a scholar that I thought had given up on doing it solo and then decided that she refused to fall short of her goal. Her strength made quite a few of us tear up and I watched this little 6th grader earn the respect of high school scholars as they watched her finish her last lap. There were tears of joy and exhaustion at the finish and a sense of pride as they finished what few thought they could do.

When I asked 2 weeks ago who wanted to do the challenge solo, there were 3 that said yes, and that was with some prodding. Today, 17 finished it Solo, and 11 finished it as a Team. Those doing it as a team also learned that they could do more than they gave themselves credit for.

We have focused on mental strength as a large part of our conditioning class this semester and this workout tested both their physical and mental strength, as well as help them learn more about some of the great heroes of our day and the sacrifices they make. You have some amazing scholars at this school!”
