This week was ridiculous at work: everything was due Friday. I could have skipped runs (I did skip my walks to work), but when I came home late each night I knew I needed an outlet. Plus, the weather was amazing. I didn't run far during the week and I didn't feel great (since runs usually took place immediately after dinner), but I always felt better for having completed them. The next two weeks are looking like more of the same, but I'm hoping I can keep running as an escape, no matter what distance I have time for!

On the bright side, I got in some hill work Wednesday. Columbus is pretty flat and over a normal week I only get about 50ft in elevation gain. This week I sought out hills (still small compared to hilly cities) and got in 300ft. I want to work on increasing this number. Not only does it force me out of my comfort zone, but it slows me down a bit and keeps me in line with the easy paces on my plan.

Tomorrow we're going to a Labor Day Arts Fest with my parents and hanging out with some friends for dinner. This next week is going to be just as rough at work. Too bad the weather will be back in the 90s. I really enjoyed the short solace of days in the upper 70s!
What are your plans for Labor Day? Did you get to enjoy a long weekend?
Have you ever forgotten something important on a run?
Have you watched any good movies lately?
