A lap of the lake

An easy run tonight around Centennial Park. The run had that much water on the ground it felt like I should have had the flippers out. I was also showered on for a couple of minutes during the run plus that great Southerly wind is still blowing strong.

Ran 7.35ks in 37:11. Average pace of 5:03 per klm.

Talked to my Dad tonight and he said they had results back about the pieces they took out of his lung, artery and lymph gland. It was Cancer unfortunately.
Hopefully that will be the last of it. But he does now have to have radiation for it. Don't understand the last bit, but there you go.

Looks like he may be out by the weekend which is great. Might have to run fast for him on Sunday in the half. Go hard or go home for me!

Sorry to hear about your Dad's results, fingers crossed everything has been removed. You and I seem to have the same race plan.

It's not good that the result was cancer but I'm glad to hear they think they got it all. They're probably doing the radiation to kill off any stray cells they may have missed. It appears to be commonly done just to make sure. All the best for Sunday.

I guess that was the second best result you could hope for your dad. Its such a relief to hear they got it all.

Go for it Sunday!

I have my fingers crossed for your Dad Paul.

Have a fast one on Sunday.
