No workout other than running around for 4+ hours trying to herd cats, aka 48 middle school kids at their first every track meet. I was proud of how hard they worked- we had kids clearing the bar in the high jump at 4 heights despite never doing it until today, kids doing their first ever relay, etc.

11 people for frisbee, my team had sub. They had Logan but a few new players. Dennis showed up from Charlotte, first time we've seen him in a year. They scored first but we dominated the rest of the way, winning 5-3. The next game was pretty relaxed/low key, my team lost 3-1. Alex covered me much of today and I actually dominated him- I think I caught 4 or 5 long scores against him. Sam said afterwards that he'd normally give me a 0% chance of catching with that matchup (Alex is tall, fast, young, and can jump), but I won all but 1 of the chances today. Nice when that happens. I also threw well, with 1 stupid throw. Don't think I had any other turnovers, and even had a beauty long throw to Dennis around Logan, which had to be perfectly placed. Probably means I'll play terrible on Friday.

more elliptical. tonight was the second and final track meet for the middle school team. They did well, especially considering only had 1 practice. A girl even won the high jump despite never doing it before today. The girls won the meet so took home a big trophy, the boys got second.

Finally played frisbee. It's spring break. We were expecting 8 people but only 7 showed up, so my team added a 10 year old as our 4th member. Hot, very windy, tired people led to lots of turnovers at first. We eventually added another pair of 9-12 year olds which gives the game a different feel. Despite really struggling at first, my team eventually won 3-2. Two of our points were even caught by the kids. No one wanted to play more, we were pretty hot and tired.

Foot finally not hurting anymore. Did an hour elliptical and my first run in over a month, only 2 miles to test it out. Felt ok, hopefully it's fine tomorrow. Then will ramp up mileage again.

4v4 frisbee, though an extra guy showed up so we had someone switching teams. My team figured out how to score while down a person first, and stole the first point from the other team. We traded points, though my team had missed opportunities (I dropped an easy catch in the end zone that would have put us up 3-1). At 3-3, the extra guy left and my team suddenly struggled a bit. We ended up losing 5-4. We did an extra game, had a bad drop, and lost 0-1.
