Monday and happy Columbus Day! We had a nice day yesterday. My uncle and his family came up to visit, so we had dinner at my parents house. A good visit was had and it was a nice rest day for me, and I only had to work half a day!
This morning, I was up raring to go and biked to the gym. Chilly, but still doable right now. Last lifting session of the week pre duathlon.

I am having some soreness in the front my shoulder with any pushing activity, so I am laying off any chest exercises for a while (probably 3 weeks). That is quite annoying. I think it is tendonitis/bursitis. Anyone have any good chest exercises that don’t have a push component to them? Maybe I need to start some chin ups again.
I was going to run on the treadmill, but then I thought I would wait until later since it was going to be nice out. So – I biked on home for breakfast!
Banana custard oats topped with nut butter and jam. This is now classic Lori for brekkie!
I put my head down today and just worked, worked, worked. I wanted to finish up as early as I could. I actually was a little surprised that there was enough work for both jobs, since the clinics were closed today. I’ll take it, though!
Lunch break. Guess what is back in the house? Tuna. Yay… maybe not so ready for it after all LOL!
Well, I did get some more lemon pepper, so it was all right. Sunchips on the side in the super noisy bag. Did you know they are going to discontinue the eco friendly bag on all but the regular chips because too many people complained about the noise? Lame…
I was having some nut issues today. John made me a latte in the afternoon, which I paired up with this:
I finished up work at about 4 pm, which was awesome! I decided to go out for a run and asked John if he wanted to go down to the track. I just wanted an easy 2-mile run as part of my taper.
Pink item of the day! My and my trisuit (aka Triscuit) ready for the run.
