Went for 7 miles this morning. It was slow but OK. I realized I had not rest since I have been back from Quebec. 10 days of running without rest. Not good and a bit stupid. I am not young and today my knee was not the happiest. So tomorrow will be rest day.
This ends week 1 of Disney Half marathon training.
Mon: 4 miles
Tue: 3 miles
Wed: 4 miles
Thu: 5 miles (10x 400 )
Fri: 3 miles tempo
Sat: 7 miles
Total: 26 miles
Happy Fathers Day to all of you who are dads and are reading this!
In my life there are 2 men who are important dads. My dad and Bill, my husband.
We don't choose our dads. I think I totally luck out in the dad department.
My dad is great and interesting man. He will be 78 in August. He is still very active. He has a garden and grows all kind of fruits and vegetables and he still drives my mom nuts after 43 years of marriage! He was born in Hungary and he left his country in 1956 during the revolution. He went to Belgium first and did his Bachelors degree at Louvain la Neuve and that is where he learn to speak French. He already spoke Hungarian, Russian and German. He arrived in Quebec in the mid sixties and he did his Master degree and his PhD at Laval University where I also went to school many years later. He married my mom in 1968 and they had me a year later and my brother Martin 16 mos after I was born (yep he is the youngest one). I am just like my dad. I look like him. I have the same personality, the good and the bad. All my life people have told me "You are just like your dad!" and all my life I thought this was a HUGE compliment. He is a fantastic father and a wonderful grandfather and I love him very much! So here's my Dad: Joyeuse Fête des Pères!
