Frisbee- my team won 5-0 despite playing 4 of the 5 points down a player, 3 against 4. I'm darn happy with that. Then we lost 2-3.

At 10:30 pm, ran 3.5 or 4 miles with the cross country daughter

AM- at gym on treadmill during hours of work calls. Felt terrible even before I started so I walked a mile, and wasn't sure I could run at all. Ended up alternating walking and running miles for a while. Ran 4, walked 3. Then lifted weights. I'm glad I got some run in. I'm not sure all the reasons I've felt so tired the past few days- not enough sleep, poor diet, out of shape? I'm sure they all contribute.

Ran 2 miles with my daughter before work. Thought we'd have frisbee today so didn't want to run too far. However, thunderstorms and not enough players led to frisbee cancellation. Maybe I'll do more tomorrow, if my ankle feels better (randomly started hurting today)

First official cross country practice was rained out but I ran 2 miles with my daughter after dinner. Tomorrow looks like a washout, too, thanks for Fred. Kinda bummed- I have lots of fun things planned for the kids, and our season is already short (finished Sept 28)

Got stuck late at work due to several tornados on the ground (5 in all), missed my chance to workout due to family stuff in the evening. Cancelled cross country second day in a row. We will have at most 5 practices before our first meet.

Hot and muggy day, 10 people at frisbee. Both teams pretty sloppy at first, especially my team. We turned it around just in time and won 5-1. Then won second game 2-1.

Hot and humid, 6v7 (my team had sub). We were tied 4-4 and other team scored but insisted they only had 4 points still (they didn't keep good score). Then we won 5-5 :)

Won second game 3-1

AM- some elliptical

PM- first XC meet of the year. Part of Hurricane Ida was moving through during warmup and most of us got SOAKED, but the boys were excited and enjoyed the rain. Everyone ran well- it was just a scrimage, but both boys and girls had 7 of the top dozen runners. Girls had 7 of the top 8. Pretty good.
