A quick run

Not a lot of time to go for a run tonight. Very windy but with no rain at all. Did a lap of Centennial Park the same as last night. Hard work in the howling wind.
Ran 7.66ks in 35:06. Average pace of 4:34 per klm.

Went and saw my Dad tonight at the hospital. He has been taken out of intensive care already and to me looks like he did before going in for surgery. The Doctors are impressed at his recovery. He's already giving me a hard time about work, so that is good.
Says he has no pain now. He did forget to mention that he is hooked up to a morphine drip.
No mention yet of when he gets to go home. They did have him wearing the nana socks ala Paula Radcliffe except they have holes in the toe areas. Very funny.

Good to see you haven't thrown in the towel with the training.
