Back to lifting today! I woke up and my legs were maybe a squidge tired from yesterday, but I really wanted to get back to the weights, so I went. I just lightened up the lower body stuff.

|Stationary lunges||3 sets of 10 (each leg) with 35# plate||Lower body|
|Face Pull||3 sets of 15 at 30#||Shoulders|
|Lower back extension||3 sets of 10 at 100#||Low back|
|Hammer curls||3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs (30# total)||Biceps|
|Nosebreakers||3 sets of 15 with 25# bar||Triceps|
Did you spy the biceps move in there? I never work my biceps anymore because of the workout they get with chest and back moves. However, with my shoulder issue, I still can’t do pushing chest exercises. I did try the pec fly machine today, but that hurt as well. Boooo…. Just needs more time. So, that meant some biceps work.
This was just a short weight workout today and no cardio. Then it was to home and a warm brekkie!
Cream of wheat cooked with banana and egg whites and topped with a measured tablespoon of peanut butter. I am actually pretty good at eyeballing that, but I have to tighten up the eating now that I am done with all that endurance stuff for the year, pretty much.
Now I am feeling a bit at loose ends. I have a couple of 5Ks to do this year, but all the big stuff is done and I don’t really have anything to train for. Earlier in the year, I had that same issue of no real training goal and I started running a lot like I had something to do and I really believe I was starting to stress and over train. So I scaled back some. Of course, then I got injured so that threw any plans out of the water for a few months. 🙄
I don’t know why I feel the need to train for something. Maybe it gives me focus or some sort of time goal. I know I need to work more on periodization, but it is always hard for me to scale back. Guess I gots me some thinkin’ to do.
Lunch time and I had an egg hankerin’! The leftover broccoli from yesterday’s dinner somehow didn’t make it into the bags going to the parent’s house (sorry Mom!) 😈 So, I chopped it up and put in in my omelet with some laughing cow. With a comice pear on the side.
I haven’t felt all that hungry today. Unusual, but it is a nice change. I had my afternoon latte with 1/4 scoop of whey protein in it.
Work for job #2 was slow in the afternoon, so I went out for a short walk. Nice fall day. However, that does mean working tonight.
We cooked up some pork burgers for dinner. I melted some Cabot on there. And fresh cut pineapple with toasted coconut. It was tropical, I tell you!
Tonight is stretching, doing RICE for my shoulder, working, and sneaking in some football watching with a snack.
Pink item of the day (which I forgot yesterday!) My bike/lifting gloves:
