Do you get to sleep in on the weekend? I don't! The alarm went off at 5:45am and we were at the field by 6:45. After dropping of Alyssa at the parking lot entrance, I drove to the far backside to begin my hike before the game. I'm not paying $7.00 for parking so I created a new track around the perimeter of the complex! Then, I hopped the fence and met up with the family in time for the 8:00 contest!
**After the game we had some downtime. So, I took this opportunity to run at Buena. My goal today was to run a quarter mile in under a minute twenty. My time:
Not a blazing fast quarter mile, but my fastest of the year nevertheless! It's a far cry from my 54 second dash that I ran in 1995. I honestly feel like a fat humphalump trying to run out there. At no point during this speed race did I feel that I ever reached top speed. I once clocked myself running at 23 mph on one of those radar guns next to a speed limit sign on a street in Beachwood, Ohio; Hiltop Road to be exact. I was in jeans and regular shoes then so I assume I could have reached speeds of 25mph. I believe the fastest human ever clocked is about 28, so in my day, I wasn't too far off. Hmm, wonder what I could reach now???
Game 2: Eagles win 2 - 0!
I left the game early to take Ayden to his dive meet:
Ayden scores a 5.0 / 5.0 / 5.5 for his 1 1/2 dive
These are great scores for his age bracket. He does the 1 1/2 somersault brilliantly!
