One more heavy bench day to go. Now we are off to spend the weekend with our daughter for parents’ weekend at college. Since she didn’t want to do the bench press contest with me, I had to do one by myself.

Must have been a really, really good time.

It was a great time. A very good game as well.

Guess the game didn’t get in the way of the partying. You young people.

We were in pretty early. Some of the other parents were out of control.

Thanks. We’ll see. My wife just came down with a cold. I told her she better not get me sick two weeks out. I may have to social distance a few days. :grinning:

The final bench is in the books. It all felt clean. I am still on the fence about sandbag work on Monday. Nothing to do now, but rest and stretch.

Alright then- let the boredom begin.

Sorry, but it is the worst part of this process-to me at least.

Are you 2 weeks out then?

November 3rd, so about 10 days now.

I got one done anyway. I just felt the need. My buddy at the gym said I’m good to do carries tomorrow. I’ll confer with my mentor Les, before I do something too stupid.
