3 mile run today went well, but the attempt to increase stride length and do some intervals resulted in a couple (very short) walking moments.
Second joint of right thumb (where thumb meets hand) is still swollen and slightly sore from being sprained during Neighborhood Dad's Football Game back in December.
Left hamstring insertion point (ie, where hamstring meets butt) still feels tight.
Weight is a bit high, I'd like to see it down about 5-10 pounds. Or, more specifically, I'd like to get rid of some of the side flub.
Chicken wrap successfully eaten. This achievement might be in conflict with previous statement.
In summary, all systems are go for the "fleetball" game this Sunday.
Fleetball is a game invented by a work pal and his friend (who lives in my neighborhood). It's played on a mid-sized soccer field. It's like ultimate frisbee but with a football.
You have four plays to score a touchdown. On any play, you can throw as many passes (forwards or backwards) as you like. You can also run the ball.
A play ends when:
- the ball carrier is tagged;
- the ball carrier scores;
- the ball carrier goes out of bounds;
- a pass is incomplete.
On an incomplete pass, the line of scrimmage for the next play is where the incomplete pass was thrown *from*. Sitting in the pocket and tossing passes doesn't do you any good in this game.
Other rules are invented as needed. There's a lot of running involved. It's a blast.
