Cycle 2 - Week 1
Combined OHP and DL day
I’m missing my workout tomorrow morning to drive for my grandfather’s funeral. On Thursday Grandma and the children decided to take Grandpa off of life support. Grandpa did well for himself. He married his high school sweetheart and stayed with her the rest of his life, retired after a long career as a carpenter/builder with just a high school education. He lived his whole life in Richmond, VA. His oldest son, my dad, is a BS/MS EE from UVA and had a decorated career at IBM and Lockheed Martin. Another son is an
upper level manager at Dominion Virginia Power. His daughter is a PhD and runs a department within the Va Dept of Health.
My favorite memories of Grandpa are from my early childhood when he would take me to play putt putt. He always made a big deal every time I got the ball in the hole, even if it was after 11 shots. I still have the football he kept at his house for me when we would come to visit. It never held any air and it was only good for an hour or so, but I knew where the needle was (in the ceramic chicken on the buffet)
and Grandpa was always happy to take me up the street to the gas station to pump it up.
The most important thing I’ll remember about Grandpa was that for 18 years, without fail, he and Grandma made the drive from Richmond to Manassas every year for my birthday in January. Some years it was dangerous because of the snow, and it got really dangerous in the snow when they got older, but Grandma and Grandpa would never miss my birthday, not for anything.
I’ll miss him. I wish there was more time, but I’ll see him again some day.
Back to the workout:
50 Dips: 15, 15, 10, 10
Hang Leg: 10, 8, 4 (ugh, too tired, ran out of gas)
No scale, so not sure about BW.
