    the x exponent represents both i think bc 52 weeks is one year isnt it?

    yes but if you use years then you would use 1 versus 52(weeks)

    If y is the distance traveled in x weeks, then, as btm said, the distance traveled is: \[y=10(1.1)^{52}\approx1,420\] So, Mark would run 1420 length unit in 52 weeks.
