I was scheduled to leave the US tomorrow, to return to PNG, but we've had delays in our visas for PNG, so are postponing our trip, probably by a couple of weeks. That means that I should train regularly for at least these 2 weeks, then some disruption again before getting back into routine in PNG. It's pretty uncertain how we will spend our time while waiting, but we'll figure something out.

It's kinda sad Oscar doesn't post anymore. I liked that guy, and was really hoping he'd lose the weight and get healthy.

I hope his not posting here anymore doesn't mean he gave up

Look who's talking. Mr. I don't update my training log because of reasons.
It's summer. I'm bloody busy and not really that much at the computer. Didn't we have this same conversation last summer as well?

Oscar is alive. He just posted to his journal.

What is everyone doing this Summer? Keeping up with training? Taking a break?

I'm a Course Officer this summer, teaching basic army stuff to new soldiers. First time doing that in about 10 years. I'm neglecting my own fitness in the process so I need to get on with that.

Training 5 times a week, coaching football athletes and hockey goalies, working at a bar and writing my thesis. So lot's of fun. And eating clean and sleeping lots.

Training working eating sleeping :)

I have a few things coming but, as they always do, they're coinciding with all sorts of other things, namely the changes in the gym (which may involve doing more courses/certifications). However I have an OL certification I really want to do, and there's a powerlifting coaching course I'm hoping to do in August, too, and i'm also getting pestered to do the powerliftng referee course (just one day) but I don't think I will, not yet anyway. Done one comp, helped at 2 and they're throwing everything at me.

One of my co-workers had a problem with his babysitter today, so rather than calling off (which would have gotten him written up), he brought his kids to work with him and made them wait in a hot, parked car for four hours, laying down so no one would see them. It would have been 8 hours, if he hadn't gotten caught and sent home early.

Today's high temp was 94 F.

It's Winter here. It was nearly below 10 degrees celsius last week. Unbelievable.
Training I expect I'll continue for 10 more weeks with a strength then possibly a power cycle, then as Spring hits it'll be time for a short break.

fair call, as if memory serves, wasn't the climate control at your last workplace set to 10 degrees fahrenheit?

Wow. In a lot of states he would have been arrested.

Sorry! I didn't think about our members from the Southern Hemisphere. I also live south of the equator, but in the tropics, so we don't have distinct seasons. I still tend to think about the seasons "back home".

Someone was arrested in Canada yesterday for that. 3 kids have died this year from being left in cars. Only 2 were charged since one of the kids climbed into the car on her own.

94 degrees is plenty hot enough to kill kids. We've been having some days in Idaho in the 100+ range. On those days I won't even allow my adult daughter to stay in a car that's not running with the AC on, and she's a non-driver, so I don't like leaving the car running.

Update: Father-of-the-year got fired. No word yet on whether or not the client company will be pressing criminal charges.
