My lifting workout today:

Machine Workout Thursday’s

Another wonderful Day. 87.5 humidity 68 and no wind, Pure Sunshine. Had to water the Orchids

The nice thing about the machine is that you have to do it right, you can’t cheat anyway.
I think I can do more rep’s because I have to use the Right Form.

Yoga 15 minutes, Crunches 4x50=200 & Leg Raises 4x10 @ to fail (this kills me)

Bench Press’s 6x14 @110#
Pic’s 6x14 @60# to fail
Front Pull Down’s 5x8 @110# to fail
Front Press Dn 6x14 @ 80# to fail slow

One Arm Cable Cross Over 5x14 @ 60# to fail
Seated Cable Row’s 5x14 @110#

Standing Leg Curls 5x14 @ 40#
Seated Leg Ext’s 5x14 @ 50#

Standing Toe Raises Tri-Set L-R-C 4x21 @ me to fail

Did everything slow, very slow and just let it hurt/burn.
I am sore but I feel good now, if the NYY win it’ll be OK.

I’m a happy old man, moved a lot of iron and I feel it.

I got the Pump Frank, I got the Pump.

I lost 9 kidney stones in 14 months, thank you very much. Eating tree leaves!

Fine out about the blood tomorrow.

Still have the Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and I don't know how to fix it yet!

Wife's stuff not looking good, know more tomorrow

Great Ride Today,
No music, just the wonderful sound of the wind in my ears.
Full Sunshine, temp. about 90f
20 miles on a two mile loop, 75 rpm’s about 17mph.
New Polar CS200cad coming tomorrow. Really looking forward to it. It will sure make the bike go faster and I’ll have lots of things to play with while riding in to a wall for not looking.
Reward, Big Yellow Banana!
Thank You Lord.

Found out why I’ve been hurting so much!
I got Diabetic Neuropathy!
Diabetic neuropathy - MayoClinic.com

BUT, that’s OK; I’ll work with it, around it or thought it. I will stay hard until the day I die.
I have all the special shoes that look like “duck feet” and what ever. So I’ll just keep going maybe a little different then before, may use the machine more often but I’ll stay hard!

Man that's a bummer Burr. Don't take this wrong but I find motivation in that to keep riding and stay fit. I'm determined (not that I'll ever see retirement) not to sit down in that rocking chair and wither away into a brittle, stiff carcass. I just wish I would have realized that much earlier in life.

It's from the hips down and I can live with it. I'll do my 20 miles tomorrow and that's that!

Burr,

Dont know you , but from reading the above it would seem you are strong willed, and tackling any disease head on certainly needs that. I am praying for you and your family for strength and comfort.

You mentioned in one of your other posts in this thread about finding out about your wifes results. If I may be so bold as to ask how she is?

I will leave you with 2 scriptures if your so inclined to read them, that I pray will uplift you and your family.

First is Psalms 118:24 and then Romans 8:28

Keep on keepin on brother,

Hazy
