Yet another sporadic update  
I don't know why I haven't felt like blathering in my journal lately. It's some weird sort of writer's block, I suppose. At any rate, I picked up Silent Hill 3 again after a nearly one-month hiatus, and I'm very glad I did. I'm enjoying the freakiness, I got the katana (w00t!), and I'm getting this urge to play in the dark and pick Normal action mode on my next trip through the game. I think I finally understand what survival horror is like for people like skurtchasor, who get pleasantly spooked and enjoy the added stress of running low on supplies and worrying about having to restart the game. Plus, I plan to unlock the unlimited submachine gun for the replay. You get it at the very beginning of the game, so you don't have to use your shitty knife or run like hell, and it will make respawning enemies fun to deal with. ^_^

And yes, I have been keeping up with workouts. I've just had to relax the schedule a bit because adhering to a strict 3 days per calendar week was taking its toll on me. I also had a couple of random strains that weren't healing, so I had to leave two days between some workouts if I didn't feel up to lifting when I was supposed to. It hasn't seemed to have hindered my progress any, so yay for that.

Bench press - 3 @ 50, 3 @ 75, 3 @ 100, 1 @ 105 (And then I failed on the next rep...fun fun fun)
Squat - 6 @ 50, 6 @ 75, 6 @ 100, 6 @ 105

Squat - 3 @ 65, 3 @ 95, 3 @ 125, 3 @ 130, 3 @ 135 (Look mom, wow, I'm squatting like a big girl now!)
Deadlift - 6 @ 75, 6 @ 110, 6 @ 145, 6 @ 150 (This was my Stupid Exercise of the Night. I was so damn eager to get that set at 150 pounds that I yanked the weight up badly. I didn't do anything really icky to my back, but it wasn't happy with me. Bad G-funk. Bad.)
Chin-up - 1, 2, 1, 1

11/9

Speed squat - 2x2 @ 65, 3x2 @ 70, 3x2 @ 80
Deadlift - 3 @ 85, 3 @ 130, 3 @ 170, 3 @ 175 (I was careful with my form this time, and the really cool thing was that the biggest plates on the bar were 35-pounders and I pulled from the floor, so I was actually deadlifting from a lower position than normal. Weeeeee!)
Bench press - 6 @ 45, 6 @ 70, 6 @ 90, 4 @ 95
Chin-up - 1, 2, 1, 1

11/11

Speed deadlift - 2x2 @ 85, 3x2 @ 95, 3x2 @ 100 (Doesn't it feel w00t when you do speed sets with a weight that used to challenge you?)
Bench press - 3 @ 50, 3 @ 75, 3 @ 100, 2 @ 105 (And I didn't fail out either!)
Squat - 6 @ 55, 6 @ 80, 6 @ 105, 3 @ 110 (The funny thing was that I really fought for that set at 105, treating it as six one-rep sets, but the 110's didn't seem that difficult afterwards. I could only do three before my form started to go, but still, progress is good.)
Chin-up - 1, 2, 1
