    Tim, Charlocity, Jerry, 57bergstrom...

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    And, as scheduled, the process is started. I've had the "shot", and now we wait for two months till we begin the radiation treatments.

    In the meantime, we'll lift as best we can, with what we've got, wherever we are.

    Peace y'all...

    I did not expect to feel like ass so soon. My hands were opening on the Deads at 135kg...

    Well, we're gonna learn about dealing with fatigue, whether we like it or not.

    ...and we haven't even started the radiation...oye!

    Shows you how strong you've gotten when you complain about your hands opening while holding 300 pounds. My brother-in-law described his experience as a U-shaped curve: Increasing fatigue during the radiation treatments followed by steady improvement.

    Regarding the"fatigue" issues:
    1) My sleep really sucks these days
    2) Maybe I've nocebo'd myself regarding the effects of the shot
    3) Maybe there's more mental fatigue present due to all the shite I've been dealing with than I've been willing to admit

    Never the less...onwards

    Larsen Bench 65kg 6*4

    did some assistance work yesterday


    Fly's - #100 10*3
    Rows - #110 10*3
    Press - #50 10*3
    Hammer Curls - 55lbs 10*3

    Yesterday, a full crew of #teamchas showed up at my mom's house, and we cleared it out...top to bottom. Two dumpsters later, and many trips to various charities, we're ready to move forward. The contractors come in after Thanksgiving to fix some mechanical issues, and then pretty it up for sale. I have no idea what I was thinking when I thought I could handle this all by myself. Thank the good lord for my friends!

    I'm still extremely fatigued, but we do what we can. I'm finding out that there are a goodly number of people that I am acquainted with, who are dealing with various cancer issues concurrent with me. Holy cow...not that misery loves company, but it's nice to trade experiences with people who are going through the same grind.

    Got a little bored...

    15 minutes on the exercycle

    Flys - #110 8*3
    Rows - #90 8*3
    Press - #70 8*3

    Now that I seem to be settled into a "routine" with how I feel, coach has set up my programming accordingly. I'll start that tomorrow. It appears to be greatly reduced in both number of exercises and the loading. 3 days a week up through the radiation portion of my treatment regimen.

    SBS - 82.5kg 8*4
    Tempo SBS - 75kg 7*4

    Dumbbell RDLs - 60lbs each 8*3
    Wide Grip Pulldowns - 50lbs 8*5
    Dumbbell Press - 30lbs each 10*4

    a reasonably good place to start things off. I'm more winded, than tired or weak...especially with the Tempo work.
