Was supposed to swim this morning but that didn't happen.  My stupid neighbors behind us decided it Monday night would be a great night for a party.  I went down there at 1am to tell them to knock it the F$#C Off.  It was two dudes sitting out there blasted out of their mind listening to music, yelling at each other and to top it off they were giving each other a haircut using only scissors you would use for cutting paper.  It was bizarrre.  They had to be on something other than booze to be acting the way they were. 

I talked to my buddy who is a Detective with the Chicago Police Department (he works gangs and drugs) and he is going to stop by and have a chat with them tonight as this isn't the first time this has happened.

Working from home today.  Our garage door busted last night, it looks like a spring snapped.  The repair man is supposed to come sometime today.  I live in a Condo and we have a 3 car garage so nobody can get their cars out today.  At least everybody could take public transportation if we have to go someplace.

Stretching, Pushups, Situps

Not happy today.  Had to drive into work today as I need to pick my bike up after work, it's getting a tune up and a check over for before the race.  As I was backing into my parking spot at some lot there was a small fence and the bike rack on the back of the car caught on it and bent the hell out of one of the racks metal arms.  I don't think it is fixable.  Needless to say I'm pretty pissed right now Yell.  At least my bike can fit in the car (I have an SUV), until I get a new one. Ughh. 


I got on the scale today for the first time in about 6 weeks and I'm 10lbs lighter than last time.  I guess IM training causes you to lose some weight.
