2020 – InnerJourney 9 – High Gear

September 2020: I am now 1245 Days and counting without a workout interruption and like I have stated before, it will continue as long as I have the means and wits about me to do it.    

We are now entering into the fall           –      ven deeper into the summer with the expectation that hurricane season is gonna be active.  So far (I am writing this on the 8th of the month) we have had one near miss.  COVID did not get the get out of town memo, so that only serves to increase the anxiety that people are feeling.  A feel other things that occurred over the last month, we had some serious demonstrations and rioting in some cases, over the death of a black man in Minnesota named George Floyd. Things were crazy for a minute.  School are being force to reopen without much change in the pandemic and the upcoming election and all the attendant tricks being played to secure the win is in full bloom.  Things are just one big mess right now. 

We (Grid, Chey and me) are all doing good.  Marcus is doing well, from all indications – we talk maybe once a week or so on a good month.  He is just about into his first week with his new ride, but we still have not gotten any words on it yet. 

Grid intends to close the deal on the house in Ocala on the 10th – that’s in 2 days.  I can’t wait to get beyond this.  We have all kinds of plans and just need to get on with it.

Chey is working her college plan and course review for her coming senior year.  She will be keeping both science teachers, I was hoping that she would not have Dr. Rod, but that just the way life is – she will have to figure it out.  She will be attending virtually in Duval Home Room, as we are not comfortable with the protocols that are supposedly in place to prevent transmission of the virus at this time.   

Darebee, although a bit quieter in my life, does not hold no less of an importance.  I am still loving on this program.  It is a part of me.

The beard beard report has run its course and this will be my last report on it. 

(Kept from previous foreword) – Additionally, I have added a couple layers of complexity or demand to my workout.  First, I am religiously sticking to DareBee and the Daily Dare; I am also, keeping the preliminaries.  Second, I have added a consecutive component – so, starting with the end of IronBorn (9 April 2017), I have worked consecutively.  I intend to push for 60 straight day, then see if I can get to 90.  So far I am enjoying it and my body seems to be rising to the occasion.  I caught the flu a few day before the end of the last phase (around May 2017) – I worked through it and was back up in only a couple of days.  It appears pushing through and forcing my body to continue working, I was able to push the flu out of my way.  I am also continuing my virtual push to OKC via Benton.  I am really enjoying that but I will have to pick up the mileage here in the next phase as I am running out of time. Keep leaning forward.
