Lunch- today was work holiday so we got 9 people at frisbee. Sunny, 50, little breezy. The other team had a sub. Very fair teams- we broke the other team first and scored 1-0, then traded points the rest of the way till we won 5-4. Then we won 3-1. Fun times. Had 3 teenagers/college kids there. My knee was painful and limiting but not so much I couldn't play.

An hour crosstraining and weights, while watching the movie Everest. That was a pretty dramatic period on the mountain, tragic.

Chilly and breezy for frisbee. 6v6- the other team scored first then my team won 5-2. Both teams didn't play great with drops and bad passes, sometimes comically so. Laughed. Then had 5v5 for next game- tied 2-2, there were dozens of turnovers and it was hard to complete passes (the cold and wind didn't help, but mainly it was just one of those strange days). My team lost 2-3.

PM 7 miles. Longest run and best I've felt in a while. I tried to donate blood on Saturday but almost passed out about halfway through so had to stop. I guess not losing a while unit of blood helped the run.

PM- 14 people for frisbee. Perfect weather- in the 50's with no wind. Fun game with some long points. I had a half dozen bad throws but otherwise played good- I think I threw 3 or 4 scores for our team. No drops. My team won 5-3 and 3-2.

PM- some sore/tight muscles and tired right from the start. Almost turned around within the first 5 minutes, but ran 3 miles at 9-ish pace. All I had time for before a work meeting and then my kid's birthday party

4v4 frisbee so lots of running. Great weather, mid-50's and minimal wind. Pretty even game- I had one terrible drop on a long bomb that hit my hands, plus a coupld throws, but otherwise played good. My team eeked out a 5-4 win.

Lots of rain tomorrow so we did frisbee today. Warm, mid-60's and humid with wet field from rain yesterday and this morning. 11 people, the other team had a sub. 

We got down 0-2 with some untimely turnovers. Tightened up a bit and eventually tied it 4-4 but lost. Then we did a second game and quickly won 3-0. Then we did a 4v5 (my team down a player) and lost 1-3. Lots of running.

Sunny and low 40's for frisbee. My team had 4 people, the other team played with 5. Pretty even during the warmup- definitely some funny turnovers. On one point, the rest of my team was getting water, so it was just me on defense against 4 people. They flubbed the second pass and I got it, then threw it to Dennis for the point when he ran in. Almost a solo point!

In the game to 5, my team started playing very well with few turnovers, and the other team worked the disc down the field but turned it over 4 or 5 times near or in the endzone. My team won 5-1, a blowout even though down a person.
