Murph is quite possibly my favourite CrossFit Workout

It's not only to remind us of the great Michael Murphy who served for the US Navy, but it's also to remind us of friends and family who have served for our country (where ever you may be), it's to remind us of all our doctors, nurses, firefighters and police officers. It's also to remind us to be kind and help each other through tough times (e.g. this workout).

Plant trees and stay focused

I have recently been trying to find some apps that will help me with my focus. I used an app called [impulse blocker](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/impulse-blocker/) which would block any website that you would add to the list. You can enable and disable it whenever you liked, but I often found I would just disable it for a large duration of time and then become easily distracted.

On 27/04/2018 I entered my first CrossFit Competition

I know that date has pretty much long gone, but I want to get into the habit of updating my blog more often with what I'm doing, so thought I would add this while I still can.

I did a tandem skydive at 15,000ft

Last Saturday, I took a tandem skydive thanks to my lovely wife who bought it for my birthday present. I have to say, I wasn't nervous at all, calm as a cucumber in fact. I always try to never over think any situation and say to myself... It's been done a million times before, they are experts and I'm going to be fine.

We don't need a social networking website. We need building websites to be more accessible.

Some may know that I've been wanting to build an open source social networking website for a long time. The trouble with building a social networking site is there is so much to do. Especially if you want to build something that's on par with the likes of Facebook.
