Tuesday - August 21

Tonight I picked up my bike from my LBS, where it was getting some pre-race tuning.  Actually, I've been so negligent in maintaining it that it needed nearly $350 in parts and labor to get it race-ready.  Oh well, it's still cheaper than a new bike, and now I have no excuse for not doing well on the bike on Sunday.

After picking up the bike, I headed home, grabbed a quick dinner (I had missed dinner with the family) crashed on the couch for a bit and then went to bed early.  I figure that I've missed so many workouts lately that I'm not going to catch up, so I'm trying to focus on having a restful and (relatively) stress-free week.

Today we had a BBQ / pool party for a bunch of our friends (~25), so I spent most of the morning getting the yard and the deck squared away.  During the party I spent almost the entire time on my feet, so by the time the last of the guests left I was totally wiped out.

Wednesday - August 15

Today I did the dumbest thing I've done in a while, and for some strange reason I feel compelled to share it with all of you who waste your time Wink reading my blog.

Tonight when I got off the commuter rail train in Framingham, I walked over to the parking lot where I park (as is my typical routine) and discovered that my car was not there.  After a moment of panic, I remembered that I had driven into work (in Boston) this morning after a dentist appointment.  So, I had to call my wife to come pick me up and bring me back home, and I'll have a friend pick me up in the morning on his way to the train station.

Since my wife had to come get me we ate dinner late, and by the time she got back from her post-dinner run I was asleep on the couch so I did not get my swimming in.  I'm getting really frustrated with myself for missing so many workouts over the last month or so, and I'm sure that I'll pay the price next weekend at Cranberry.  Frown
