In general I feel o k., but not buzzing with energy to go for walks or exercise. I am still eating well and make an effort to eat a lot to try to keep my weight up. I do have some strange sensations in the body, or the occasional twinge, but so far so good. I [...]

This is the update for Chemo day + 3 days. Alfred seems to still be doing well! Hi vern, Yesterday I did 9 holes on the small par three course at Asia Hotel,it was nice to have walk-around and chat with a friend. I did quite well but the body is giving a few signals [...]

I sent Alfred a short note to wish him a happy birthday, though I said, I don’t really celebrate anything and didn’t know if he did. I also encouraged him to take the anti-nausea pills whether or not he initially had it because some others I read about said it’s much better to do so [...]

I heard from a friend that the annual Banyan Tree Run Up in Bangkok, Thailand was going to be held on October 14th, this year, but I couldn’t find information about it online. My question at their Facebook account went unanswered. I will give them a call soon and see if they are having this [...]

Well, I’ve slacked off here a bit – this blog was never meant to be a full-time blog, though I do love writing about what I’m doing on the stairs and with other exercise, it isn’t really a focus. Writing books is much more my focus at the moment. I’ve been carrying up 6-7 liters [...]

I did a video about my workout today – below: I fear that I’m not getting any faster by sprinting up the steps as I’ve been doing with my latest speed workouts on the mountain staircase. I weigh 12 pounds less than I do when I went up in 12:01, about 3 years ago. Recently [...]

Today I drove the 185 km back on the motorbike from Phuket – island paradise. At least it was once. I can’t take more than about a night of it. I felt good once I was back home. I decided to head up the mountain. I was not sure how I’d do because I did [...]
