    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets ONE.DAY.OF.RADIATION.LEFT.

    Narrow Hands Push Ups - 5*10 30 seconds rest
    Pike Leg Extension - 5*10 1 minute rest
    Arm Extended Plank - 5*30 seconds

    2 mile walk 35 minutes

    Well today's the first time I've been able to walk without suffering intestinal issues halfway through the walk.

    Hopefully my long nightmare is coming to a close, at least this chapter.

    I feel like I''m eight y/o, and it's Christmas Eve. Tomorrow at 11:30 can't come soon enough!

        • ...aaaaaaannnnnd, we're done with the radiation!

          Now to put back on the weight I've lost, and find some way to regain the strength in these 'rona times.

          I crackin' open a bottle of LaPhraoig Select tonight...first drink since this whole circus started back in November / December.

          • That is wonderful to hear! Wish I could celebrate with you. We don't have any fine scotch around the house so I'll have to raise a glass of something else to you tonight.

                  Pike Push Ups - 10*10
                  BSS - 70lbs 10*5
                  I-Y-T - 5lbs each 10*3

                  Yes that's right, I've got some weights...or should I say plates: 2*35lbs, 2*5lbs. it ain't much, but it's better than nothing.

                  Got a little more distance in today without any intestinal issues, the recovery continues...

                  • Now you're hooked. Plates are a gateway to heavy-duty garage use. That's how I started. A few plates here, some dumbbells there...now look at me. Take heed.

                      Livin' in the 'rona times reps/sets

                      Press - 35lbs 20*5
                      Tri Press - 35lbs 20*5
                      Goblet Squat - 35lbs 12*10
                      3 mile walk...

                      Just doin' what I can, with what I've got. The walking is a great mood enhancer now that the weather is accommodating.
                      Gotta be honest, now that I'm done with all the cancer treatments, I'm kinda lost at sea.
                      Aaaannnnnd, I feel worse today than when everything ended: certain bodily functions are not easy or pain free at the moment. The docs hint at this stuff, but never come right out and tell you that you're gonna be really uncomfortable for a few weeks...

                      • Sorry to hear about the continued pain. I wish doctors were more forthcoming. It would help their patients to be mentally prepared.
                        Walking is great, isn't it? After 20 years of living in in the same house we just recently (well, in December) discovered a beautiful network of trails right at the edge of our neighborhood. The trail winds through sage and pinon, with sandstone rock formations off in the distance. Our favorite trail is just a bit over 3.5 miles round-trip.

                              Squat Holds/Tempo Squats - 35lbs 20 sec / 10*5 4-0-0
                              Tempo Press - 35lbs 10*5 4-0-4
                              Straight Arm Planks - 60 sec *5

                              Picked up a metronome app to keep me honest on the Tempo work.

                              Had to roll into the docs today, the post radiation issues have gotten obnoxious. Unfortunately the prescriptions they handed me are not available anywhere in WNY till Monday...even they didn't have the items in stock. FML

                              Tempo work...lovin' it (lie, lie, lie)

                                Side Planks - 30sec *5

                                Felt frisky enough on Saturday to do some interval work on a 2 mile circuit, and then got another couple miles of walking in after that was finished Perhaps a little ambitious in hindsight. I've got wicked DOMS...oh my lord.
