    34th day of radiation, 11 to go...

    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets

    Squat Jumps - 5*10
    Step Ups - 15*7
    Calf Raises - 25*5
    Squats - 20*5

    Short rest periods

    Got in a two mile walk yesterday. Due to the intestinal issues, I can't be too far from a bathroom. A mile out, and a mile back is the limit before it's butt clenching time.

    That Owww from the other day, well I blew a blood vessel in the bottom of my foot on Saturday, it was so painful I thought I was experiencing a Gout attack. Fortunately the issue resolved itself as quickly as it came on, and by Monday I was able to actually walk.

    I did not need to add a Gout attack to the rest of the bullshit I'm dealing with...bullet dodged.

    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets

    Only 9 more days of radiation treatments

    Planks 45 sec *6
    Plyo Push Ups 3*10
    Paused Push Ups 5*10
    Coffee Table Curls 30 sec *5

    It took a couple of warm up attempts before I could get enough "pop" on the Plyo Push Ups so I could clap my hands without falling on my face...[[[facepalm]]]

    Have you already planned how you will celebrate radiation treatment being over?

    Actually...No.

    With everything being on lockdown, living apart from my estranged spouse, not having my dog, and of course - the gym being closed, it hasn't been a thought. That, and I've been truly taking it one day at a time.

    Also, as Churchill said: "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." I still have to get past the three month check-up to see if this treatment regimen actually worked...and then every six months there after. But that thought process is getting ahead of myself.

    I can't really enjoy food, or the occasional dram of LaPhroaig...doesn't that suck.

    I'm thinking that I'll give thanks to G-d for helping me through the process immediately upon leaving the building.

    Then, in about a months time hopefully, I'll gather all the folks who backstopped me since November for pizza and beer at the gym.

    Thanks for getting me started on the planning...***fistbump***
