Didn't get any workouts this week cause of work conflict. Finally played frisbee today, a ton of people- 18. I hate 7v7 with lots of subs. My team won 5-2, then were up 2-0 but lost 2-3.

15 people for frisbee. Other team had sub. My team turned it over early so other team scored first. Then we traded points till we were down 2-3, having never led. Then we scored 3 straight for the win. It was somewhat windy and other team was faster and doing a zone defence, so I'm happy with the W.

Been a busy few days. No time for workout. At state qualifier track meet- my freshman missed qualifying for state by 4 seconds in the 1600, but did PR by 7 seconds. She did the risky strategy of starting very slow, trailing everyong by 4 seconds at 400m and 5 seconds at 800m. She slowly gained on the slower runners then kicked very hard with 300m to go, moving from dead last to 4th place in 200 m. However, she was in the slower heat and missed advancing by 2 places. She was excited with the new strategy and big PR, though. At the start of the season, she ran 6:25, and ran 5:34 today.

Her distance team is very good. They have the fastest time at 4x8 in the state (9:29) and have 5 distance girls going to state championship.

Cross Country tryout time trial. Got in a mile setting up the cones. Thunderstorms had been predicted for days but held off at the last minute. We aren't cutting any kids this year, which is nice. 45 runners on the team. There's only 450 kids in the entire school, so we are at 10% of the student body this year. If my kids' high school had similar numbers, there would be 250 on the cross country team.

At father-son campout so didn't make the trek to state. My daughter attended as the first alternate for the 4x8 team. She didn't need to run in the end. The team did amazing, winning the race by a second (including a 30m comeback in the last 300m), plus setting the all-time girls state record (9:21). Great job! The girls team took 3rd overall (despite having 0 sprinters in the meet), with other girls scoring in the 800 and 3200. Only one girl is a senior, so hopefully the XC and track teams will be amazing next year.

GE family fun run day, supposedly a 6k. My 3 youngest came. I ran with my 9 year old, she is the fastest but started feeling hot/sick (it was hot/humid) so we only did 3 miles. The other two did the whole course of 3.7. Hope my Achilles isn't too unhappy tomorrow.
