Pro Mask Murph: Attempted

Murph with 21lb. weight vest and pro mask? Crazy. But I tried it. Back in March I did the running portions of Murph with a pro mask and decided I’d try to do the whole shebang in a pro mask today. Lesson learned: oxygen-deprivation sucks the life out of you. Quite literally.

So I made it through a couple rounds but had to dump the mask… then had to dump the vest a little over halfway through. The earlier hypoxia sapped a ton of energy. Total time was 59:01. I’ll need to do some more pro mask work before a goal like this will be attainable. This was a full hour of misery.
