Ok...ok...

This week:
Bench PR:275
Squat PR: 335

17 miles is the farthest (furthest?) that I've ever run.

Note to self: never set a pr on deadlift the day before you attempt to run farther than you ever have.
I was running bent over like the old man that I am. Fought off the back spasms long enough to finish.

No disrespect to marathon runners but the biggest redeeming value I see in all this is that I get to to eat as much food as I can shovel in my face. That & the 26.2 sticker.

My one fault is that i can not run, If i was to do a mile gentle jog even my back woulds be screaming at me and my left knee would hate me for days.

Excellent run there pop's.

Bench 285#
Wanted to try 290 but it seems more important to me that I end on a positive. Be patient & let the process work, Old man...be patient.
