Since getting back to setting records is one of my goals...I'm back.  Chasing that national bench press record in either of 2 classes. I need to add about 70# to my bench (getting it back to where I was 2 years ago) and that should do it.

 

More to follow

So what have I been up to?

1) Still work for Red Hat, still travel a lot

2) April of 2018 we moved from Florida back to Ohio to be closer to family (we live right next door to one of our kids..and 3 soon to be 4 grandsons)

3) Helping my wife go through kidney cancer surgery last year (all good now)

4) Continuing to be treated for prostate cancer (yucky hormone suppressors)

5) This summer, I won a trip to Mexico with Red Hat.  On the last day, my wife fell and shattered her shoulder.  Emergency  Surgery in Mexico and a medical evacuation home (ie a Lear Jet), then 2 months of attempted recovery before a shoulder replacement surgery in late August.  

6) Built a home gym...get to it less than the gym that is 30 minutes away....because of number 5.

 

I’ve traveled and worked out less this summer than I have in 7 years.

 

i’ve managed to lose about 20 lbs..I’m headed for the 240’s from the 270’s.

 

more on plans in next post.

OG is probably an out-of-date term. In the 90’s it stood for Original Gangster. I meant to refer to you as one of the nerds who’s been around since the beginning or at least a long time.

I figured that was what you meant.  I think I predate the forums...I know there were a couple of upgrades of the forum software while I was active.

Yeah, I'm with you on that one....never had a seat mate like that.  Not even my wife!!

 

Anyway, I deadlifted once then got on a 5 hour flight...my legs cramped after about an hour and I couldn't get up to move...3+ hours of agony.

Ok, the second half of today's workout was a bit excessive....but that's what happens when I have hours to kill before a late Friday flight home.

 

I was in Florida today specifically for a followup with my urologist about the prostate cancer.  My markers are not where we want them (something appears to be still roaming around my body but we can't find it).  Markers are not high enough to justify another round of scans, etc.  (PSA is at 1, it should have gone to 0).  I got my next 3 months of testosterone suppression which he says I'm handling very well.  He attributes that to my conditioning.  I attribute it to my conditioning, prayer/faith and medical marijuana (and he knows that).   I'm thinking about trying another alternative treatment.

Took a little break.  The Lupron shot usually knocks me back for a day or two.  It's a fairly large shot (22.5 ml) and I've always gotten in my butt.  Did the arm this time...big mistake.  I couldn't even do a pushup for about a day.  Ice and ibuprofen and now I can move my arm again (it's still swollen and sore, but less so)

Bit excessive again, but why not?  Dental appointment, a bunch of phone calls and about 200 miles of driving.  Sounds like a good excuse to workout twice to me...

Following this largely for international flight weirdness.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Be a long wait as I have no plans to go international at the moment...though I do want to visit England while I still can.

Rushing right along.  I got a workout in on Friday, then my workout over the weekend was mixing up over 2000# of cement mix by hand, pouring and finishing it.  Back on the workout trail tonight.
