That's Just Harry


#663

Getting in a bro session, nice work mate.


#664

Your brothers have such interesting and unique names. How did you wind up with just Harry? (Heh!)

Every time I see pork used in Philippine cuisine on the Food Network, it makes me salivate.


#665

Kalderetta Baboy, my favorite pork dish. We also cook up a pig for every occasion in the Philippines. Usually around 30-40#. Very popular at christenings.
Most of my brothers are named after uncles and such. As for my name, Dad got to me, #6, and either decided it was time to have a Jr. or just got tired of coming up with names. Where he got his I have no idea. According to my mother I was almost Gerhard Mercer (Behrmann) after my mother’s father.

Pretty sure I had a great 4 of July. Started at the Vet home cooking breakfast. Their compliments always make me blush. (Stop pissin in the damn pancake batter, Chief!) BarBQ at big brother Remi’s. Pig done to perfection and the firework’s were as good as promised. Met many a new boyfriend and girlfriend of great nieces and nephews. God, having great-great nieces and nephews makes you feel old. Both Father Dan and Father Bart from the parish came by and visited with mother for a while. She enjoyed that and her glass, or two, of her Riesling wine. The mayor and some other local dignitaries stopped by to have one and press the flesh. Outstanding zydeco music provide by a nephews band. Once again for some reason I was not asked to sing. Good time for all.
Today - swam up the river and the down. Not sure how far but it felt good.

Afternoon - ran a mile. Adding running to the work out. I have a purpose.


#668

Was something chasing you? That’s the only reason I can think of to run.


#669

There’s a swim & run challenge in Subic Bay, the Philippines. 3k (1.84m) swim and then from the beach to around an elevation 1,253 metres (4,111 ft) over a 4k (2.5m) winding course. Did it the first time in 1984. Wanna see if I can still do it. Going to try it in Dec with my son who’ll be there on leave with us. Probably take off a few pounds and get down to around 215 for it. No fool like an old fool.


#670

Wow! May you kick aome ass my friend!


#671

If it goes from sea level to 1200m in 4km I doubt you will run much. That is seriously steep !!


#672

You, you’re off the team! :wink:

There is no doubt for Team Harry, there is only do!


#673

Sorry, you’re right. Mixed up my meters and feet. The elevation is 1,253 ft (382m) not 1253m and it is 4k (2.5 miles). Never do conversions after a Jameson’s or two.


#674

Lol, I did a race in Australia that had a bit over 1200m elevation but it was 22km long. I ran up hill for over 2 hours and it was totally brutal. The thought of having to do that elevation in 4km made me shiver. Even 1200ft in 4km will be tough, but no doubt you will kick it in the arse.


#675

Yesterday - morning- 1500m swim. slow and steady
Afternoon - 1 mile run on dirt road

Today
seated machine press - 110,130 x 12 (neutral grip) 140, 150 x 12 (overhand)

face pulls (seated/rope) - 60,70, 80, 80 x 12
shrugs - 225 x max x 3 bb, 60 x max x 3 (3 second pause)
stair climber - 4 minutes - never used one of these before and it kicked my ass. Legs were pumped after just a few minutes.


#676

For the first time since I can remember I did an “arm day”

All supersets
ez curls & overhead tri ext (rope) x 4
cable preacher curls & cgb x 4
hammer curls & straight bar tri pushdowns
sng arm cable curls & sng arm tri extension (palm up)
1 mile treadmill run at incline 5


#677

Nice work Harry, the girls love the curls !


#678

Solid mix in the workouts Harry.


#679

I’m at the point that it should be “curls for the grandmas”.


#680

Headed out to a brothers place who’s property includes a nice hill. Not sure of the rise put it’s fairly steep and maybe a couple 100 yards or so to the top. Ran to the top twice today then an estimated half mile over grass. This getting back into running is…challenging. Feels good though. Need to find a place on the river where I can come straight out of the water to an open run area, preferably with an incline. I wear an Orca Open Water swimsuit usually but it sucks for running. May have to go back to plain shorts.


#681

Wouldn’t worry about that plenty of good looking grannies out there
