Sunday Jun 16 #

11 AM

Run 24:09 [1] 2.38 mi (10:08 / mi)
ahr:166 max:210

A good deal warmer today. We jogged over to Randy's pickup disc game. (Elena can throw a forehand, I can throw a backhand, hooray?) Elena has a conference near Madison, I went out with her for the weekend. Almost stayed out for the week but her conference is in the middle of nowhere, so back to Boston.

Originally the plan was MSN-ORD-BOS Sunday at 1600. We actually made it onto the jetway before ORD wx reared its ugly head. (It turns out they probably could have run our flight, so, yeah.) My options:

* long layover in ORD, landing in Boston around 0200.
* 0600 departure from MSN Monday arriving home around 1300, so missing half a day of work.
* Later departure from MSN, miss the whole day of work, and feel very silly flying home for three days (wedding in Mpls next weekend, couldn't call an audible since I hadn't brought work computer or enough clothes).

Uhhh none of these sound particularly good.

Then I realized there was a fourth not particularly good option: MSN-DEN-BOS. United booked it for me, in F (or I was high enough on the list) and off to DEN I went, the entirely wrong way. I had nearly 5 hours in DEN so I called my friends (okay, texted, but I am an older millennial) and they said "sure, take the train towards us" and got dinner and a beer. Slept a bit on the plane. More miles, more fun?

Sportsball! 24:31 [1] 1.38 mi (17:50 / mi)
ahr:125 max:168

Running back and forth attempting to play ultimate. They would say things about coverages or whatever, and I would run around and try to either get the disc or keep others from getting the disc, and if given the disc I would almost immediately try to dispose of it (successfully). I almost had a great defense but was just a couple inches off, and I blew a defense. It was hot and fun and Elena and I decided that we should get a disc to throw around especially as her mobility decreases. Either that or start Pregnant Lady Ultimate League for her to play in, although for now she is still perfectly mobile. I should learn how to throw a disc better, though.

(Yeah, I know this isn't sportsball as much as sportsdisc, but I needed to make a new category. Also, there should be an easier way to make a new category out of an existing activity. "New activity type" only shows up when you manually add an activity.)
