One of the courses I've started playing more is built on the side of a hill so there's a lot of walking up and down (~6k ft 24 hole). I usually stop for ~5-10 seconds and pace my breathing, continue on with my shot, then walk it off the rest of the way to the next tee. I prefer to take my time and improve my game and let the weight loss be a side effect, but I still finish in ~1.5 hours or so solo depending on how many times I lose sight of my disc (hate that!). I typically feel a little more rushed if there's a group behind me, but it's typically not crowded on Sundays when I play with my friends and one of them ends up deep in the trees fairly often so I have plenty of time to take it easy hehe

More like:
If you want to play well, rest. If you want to get in shape, don't rest. If you want to play great, make it so you don't need to rest and catch your breath.

I'd actually say the opposite although this method will be easier on the joints and allow you to play more holes.

I'm just thinking how gnarly it can be this time of year carrying what feels like a 40lb grip bag loaded with 20 discs and two liters of water. Hilly courses too. That's got to burn more if you're still keeping a quick pace.

I don't get flu shots but I don't usually get the flu. Past winter though I had it bad and for about two weeks. I kept trying to play disc golf so it took a while. I'd get out probably dehydrated and with cold sweats. I thought I was going to die after a few holes. It sucked. I won't ever play with the flu again.

I generally just push through it and by the time I get to the next tee I'm back to normal, it's never bad... I was just thinking of how it might effect shots. Now, as far as my arm getting tired, I actually find that it helps me throw better because I quit trying to throw so hard and it smooths me out. I never remember that til the freaking end of my round...
