5k in the am. Got to bed before 9PM so I set an alarm for 5:45 instead of 6:45 so I could start my run earlier. Ended up somehow sleeping through that for an hour and waking up at 6:45 anyway. Started running at the turf fields, but there were already two fellas there throwing a frisbee. While I commend them for having the dedication to practice such a thing so early, my morning 10 mainly serves as a sort of meditation for me before I start my day, and I couldn't relax hearing them yell and swear and worrying about getting hit by a frisbee the entire time, or dodging them. So after a couple of miles I decided to run around the law school instead, got maybe half a lap and a bird started trying to divebomb me, swatted it with a branch and it went away but I was so supremely pissed at this point I bagged the run there, I'll get the rest of mileage after class. Gonna start using a louder alarm

Couldn't get over the morning run so at a bit past 11 I headed out and got the rest of my normal AM 10, even managed to finish before noon. Guess today's gonna be a 3-run day, wasn't planning on trying those until 2020.

5 in the evening with some good strides and stretching included. Now to shower, eat dinner, and get a good night's rest before the long run tomorrow.

I'm sorry about your morning run, but I'm laughing at the thought of hardcore Frisbee enthusiasts that play seriously enough to swear. I mean, if it were a game of ultimate maybe. But two guys, like, playing catch? Okayy..

Considering I got all the miles in, I'm okay with it after the fact. They just REALLY didn't like when they missed an easy catch.

The funnier part to me is how they'd take a break every 10 minutes to pour water over their heads. Strenuous stuff!
