Had to skip a session
How fucked am I if i have to skip a session? It's either A) Do it another day (hard to explain but I have a tight schedule) and shortening my Strategic Deconditioning from 9 to 7 days or B) Do nothing about it and have my normal 9-day Strategic Deconditioning.
I won't be able to go to the gym today because of work and it would had been the third day of the last 2 weeks of the whole HST cycle.

I wouldn’t worry at all about missing one session.
IMO a 9 day vs 7 day SD is much more important than missing several sessions.
If you haven’t already missed it you could do a little extra volume on the workout before the missed session to take advantage of the extra rest or just use the extra rest for recovery from your normal routine.
As for the weights just skip the weights for the missed session and pick up where you normally would have been so that you end your micro cycle with the proper RM.Male: 51 years old
Bench Press 240 lbs. @ 178 lbs. (12 July 2012)
Power Squat 390 lbs. @ 180 lbs. (10 November 2012)
Deadlift 390 lbs. @ 180 lbs. (27 November 2012)
Total 1020 lbs. (finally made it 16 July 2012)

As grunt said, I'd be more worried about the SD. You want your SD to be 9 days. So skip the session if necessary and as grunt said, you could up the volume on the workout prior.PRs:
Squat - 485 lbs
Bench - 315 lbs
Deadlift - 635 lbs
Total - 1435 lbs
