    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.

    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.

    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

    OK, We are going to be hit big time tonight and tomorrow. The storm is bigger than the island so we are going to get wet.
    We are on the good side right now if it doesn't move further south. All we should get is a lot of rain, lots of rain!
    We should be OK, we have most everything we need, water, food, propane and a DC fan plus a generator that we can run every 50 hours for the Refrigerator and charge the battery for the fan and even the AC for an hour or so. No need to waste the amp's.
    I do have a great wireless cell type DSL Network and laptop so I may be able to get out if the power is off but the cell tower has power.

    OK, you know where, what when and how so take care and we'll see what happens. I also have a 4x4 pickup. Maybe nothing will happen and it will all be for nothing.

    I'm still riding but we have had three months of rain.
    I will do 20 miles on my city bike in the rice fields tomorrow for sure and post it.
    I need to take control of myself again and I will.
