55:07 min, 126 avg. hr, 153 peak.

Made up for Monday’s dismal showing in the gym. NROL FL1 B3 circuit.

Semi-finished with alternating, 3 set each, 15 sit-ups w/65lb bar, 25@ BOSU push ups.

Closed out with one set each side, 15 kneeling cable seated rows w/45 lbs. The exercise was featured on Men’s Health today. It doesn’t look like much but I could see where if you did enough sets weighted right they would be killer.

As a side note;

I received the green light from my surgeon’s office to start self dosing my Coumadin. This is a big deal to me! So many times I do not agree with the recommendation of the “Attendant on duty”  when they “take a shot at it”!

I was a couple points low this week, no big deal, the difference in a eating a couple cups of broccoli on Sunday or not. The order that came back would have put me in the stratosphere. For the first time in 2 ½ years I declined, I just said “I respect your opinion, but, no, I’m not going to do that.” Here is what I will do though,….It was actually a pleasant conversation, I wasn’t a prick or anything! Just knew it was wrong.

Long and short of it, I spoke also with the team leader of the On-X Study and she released me to self-dose. In the 2 1/2 years I have never missed reporting, and she said, “You know more how to dose yourself better then they do. Anyone else, probably not, you, I have no issue having you adjust on your own.”

Cool! I sill report once a week and as long as I don’t get too far out of out of range, or they notice major fluctuations, I’m on my own.

On-X has a vested interest in me, they paid for ½ of my surgery. I don’t intend to let them down.  I aim to be their Poster Boy!

    Happiness. Wrestling control out of the hands of others is a BIG deal. You are one guy that they can rely on. Congrats.
