7 people for frisbee- Sam started off as the swapper, then I was for the game. The team with 3 never scored so I played 4 points with the losing team and 5 with the winning. I caught the game winner so that was my one stipulation of how I would win.

Today was one of the crazier games. 6v6. My team was doing as poorly as any team ever has during the warmup- we didn't score once until the other team had scored at least 12. It was nuts. I had to cover Logan, a recent college grad who is super fast and tall. It was brutal. We finally started scoring some just in time for the game to 5, 5-4. Believe it or not, Jon's theorem again proved true and the team winning the warmup lost the game.

XT, walking. Went to my daughter's last middle school soccer team for the regular season today. They won 12-0. My daughter is normally defense but started on offense till she scored 2 points. Even our goalie spent half the game on the offensive half, scoring once. It would be nice if they scheduled us to play the good teams more and not the new teams (felt bad for them- it's no fun for anyone to get beat that bad).

The team scored 67 points this season while not giving up a single point. Tournament starts tomorrow.

When you say "middle school soccer team", is this actually affiliated with the school or is it a club team?

From Jon on Thu, Apr 28, 2022 at 06:42:00 from 4.7.58.170

Actual middle school team made up of 6-8th graders. They play in a conference with some charter and religious schools. Same school where Iím the head cross country coach

Went to the middle school soccer championship game. My daughter played every minute. They won 2-1 in a thriller, capping off an amazing season where their only loss was in a pre-season game on PK's, and in which they scored 69 goals while only allowed a single goal all season. That's amazing to me- they were only scored on once all season.

PM- We ended up with 10 people on a hot day of frisbee. My team played terrible at the start- bad throws and lots of drops. At one point, we played for 10 min with one fewer player on my team and actually did better. But we reverted to form in the game and lost 2-5. Fortunately, we won the second game 3-1.

We have middle school cross country tryouts starting next week. I'm hearing rumors there will be tons of kids showing up. Historically, we keep 16 boys and 16 girls as we have transportation limitations and we are already far bigger than the teams we race against. Last year, we had 38 runners. I'm open to more but probably not the 50-60 I'm hearing may come. I'm excited for it, though- it's fun to see the energy of these kids.

Did a bunch of walking this morning. Tonight was the family 5k at work. I ran with my 10 year old boy, and was real proud of how hard he worked (he's not in good shape). He ran almost the whole first 2 miles, then a fair amount of the third. Finished in 37 min.

I walked 4 miles or so.

Had 9 people for ultimate, my team had a sub. Very humid. My team won 5-3.

53 kids turned in forms to tryout for cross country on Monday. We had 41 tryout last year, the most ever, and had 38 on the team. I'll have to see how they all run- I'd like to not cut any (at least, any that actually make an attempt to run), but we aren't really equipped to have that big of a team. Historically, we limited it to 30-32 runners.

AM- elliptical

PM- Day 1 of cross country tryouts. Most years, the team has about 30 members. Today we had 53 kids show up, plus 11 others who said they would come but missed today. That's a lot, and we aren't equipped for it (don't even have enough uniforms). Crazy, fun practice. Tomorrow is another practice, then next Monday is a time trial to see who will be on team. I'm trying to convince the RD to significanly increase from last year's record 38 runners.

I'm working with the AD on how many we can keep- I'd like to keep at least 23 boys and 23 girls, but would prefer to keep all. Prior to last year, the team was restricted to 32 runners. Last year we had 38.

The original was basically a 2 hour long 1980s music video. Which made it awesome to people of my generation. I was a senior in college at the time.

We were tied 2-2 when the next point took forever (10 minutes?). When it was 3-3, we decided to shorten the game due to length and then my team won 4-3.

Wife and daughters came home early from church youth camp after they cancelled it 12 hours before it was scheduled to end. Blamed high temps, but it's only 70 deg tonight (admittedly, it was record highs earlier in the week). I think this teaches a bad lesson of quitting when things are uncomfortable, rather than perservering. Again, the temps were low tonight and they were due to come home first thing tomorrow morning anyway.

Another hot day for frisbee- humid and temps in the 90's had a heat index over 100, plus blustery, swirling winds. We had 9 people so Haley was switching sides. My team scored first with Haley, then she went to the other team. We forced turnovers and scored 3 more times while down a player, which is very hard to do. Once it was 4-0, they scored once, before we won 5-1. No one wanted a second game in this heat.

No official workout but did a ton of running and walking and biking as RD for the middle school cross country meet today. 12 teams, 220 runners. My boys and girls both won the team scores.

Someone pointed out to me that cross country is pretty popular at my school. 10% of the students are on the team, and another 2+% tried out but didn't make the team.

AM elliptical and weights

Second to last cross country race of the season today. 77% of the team set PRs at today's race, which is awesome. Both boys and girls team won with 25 points- neither team has lost this season. Next week is the conference championship. Here's hoping for a strong finish.
