week in review

Last week was full of fun adventures and lots of running in only a few days. Here's a brief look.

Monday: Shark Week celebration!

seriously, how fun is this? Justine rocked it.

don't play this with red wine. Not like I would know or anything.

Tuesday: Breakfast meeting, afternoon run (8 miles) and then babysitting!

due to her genes, this baby is already faster than you

Wednesday: An early meeting back down in Le Sueur, followed by heading back up to St. Paul for a luncheon where my dad and his company was honored with a "Leading with Faith" award by Catholic Spirit magazine.

Shortly after the luncheon, I had to go back down to Le Sueur for an evening meeting. Due to improper planning, no running today. 

Thursday: Early run (7 miles w/ 10 x 1 min @ 5k pace, 1 min RBI), meeting, and shopping. Then a late night run (4 miles)  to make up for the fact that I skipped my run on Wednesday. 

Friday: Worked in the morning, ran (8 miles) over lunch. Came up to Plymouth to stay with my 16 year old sister while my dad and fam are gone. Dinner, drinks and darts with a friend.

Saturday: Slept in(!), brunch, some QT and chores over at Grandma and Grandpa's, and then early movie night with my little sister. No running.

Sunday: Epic solo long run- 18 miles! My right knee has been killing me but it sort of numbs out after a few miles. I kept the pace slow and felt great during it.  After is sort of a different story. I've been taking ibuprofen and icing at various times throughout the day.

Lunch with my favorite girls....

...followed by more time with Grandma and Grandpa, dinner with one friend, then drinks with another. (Now that I live an hour away, my social calendar fills quickly when I'm back in the big city.)

Weekly mileage: 45 miles (a new post-PE record!)
