Toward the end of summer…

Busy day today; picking up the daughter at Midway this evening (early); and my wife is returning from her Europe trip early either late tomorrow or Wednesday.

Workout notes: weights plus an easy 5K walk where I focused on “push off” (to Lower Bradley Park and back)

Bodyweight: 187 upon waking up.
weights: pull ups: 4 sets of 10 with rotator cuff recoveries, then 1 more set of 10 after bench press
bench press: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, 3 x 185, 7 x 170. I didn’t go for an “extra rep” as I was the ONLY one in the free weight area…literally. Yes, the bench has “safety catches” so I was safe so long as I didn’t push it.
dumbbell military press/dumbbell row/pull down super set
military: 2 sets of 12 x 50 (seated, supported), 10 x 40 standing
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 60 each arm
pull downs: 3 sets of 10 x 160 usual machine

Then the walk.


Yes, there are “good business practices” and people ignore these at their peril. Yes, this is a Herman Cain article, and yes, many conservatives (and sadly, some liberals) happily ignore scientists when their conclusions don’t match with their agendas. Nevertheless, running a business is a skill that many do not have. So I’ll give the “bad guys” their due here.

And yes, here is another case of that: a senior fellow of the Cato institute points out that while ISIS is evil, it really isn’t a serious threat to the United States.

Politics: winning the House will always be tough for us. Gerrymandering hurts, having a sitting President hurts and the nature of “who is a Democrat, who is a Republican hurts”. Basically, rural areas will tend to be over represented in the House and the Senate; the latter by design.

Relationships: oh yes, many of us have had those wonderful times when we weren’t quite in serious relationship, but we were sure enjoying the hell out of it. That is the best: enjoy the company and the cute butt without morning breath, illnesses, idiotic relatives, personal problems and the rest of the baggage. And what you didn’t know about the other person: YOU could just fill that stuff in with your own mind!
