1k in 2k10- Crazy busy week

I work at a University and last week was finals week. That meant that last week was also time for all of the students to pack up and go home. That ALSO meant that I worked a crazy long week. I still managed to get my mileage in however. I was VERY proud of myself!

On Monday, it rained so I hit the treadmill at the gym. I intended to run 3 miles but when I was over 2 miles into my run, the fire alarm went off! We all evacuated the gym. When I got back inside, I figured that I my allotted 30 minutes (our gym has a limit on the time you can spend on a cardio machine) started over! So, I ran a total of 4 miles!

I got up early and ran 3.3 miles around my neighborhood.

I did NOT want to run at all today but hubby and I decided that we'd run to...wait for it...a local cupcake store! That was super motivating and we ran 3.21 miles.

I had to work on Saturday so I was so happy when the coach from the marathon training program proposed something to the marathon trainees and pacers. He was going to run 24 hours to raise money for cancer research. He would start at 10:00 AM on Friday and end on Saturday. He wanted people to sign up to run with him so I took and afternoon shift. I ran a 14 mile loop with my coach and some other runners and then tacked on an additional 2 to get to my mileage goal for the week. The guys I was running with were a little faster than I am but I was proud of myself for keeping up!

Total for the week:

I'm still on track!
