Sunday Setup

Yesterday we had so much fun hanging out with the family. And the best part? J was feeling so much better. I’m so glad he got the second steroid shot because it really helped the croup settle down. He even ate a whole pancake and some yogurt yesterday morning.

We headed about an hour north after my short run yesterday to see my niece get baptized. The 8th birthday is a special one in our belief because it’s the age of accountability and you can choose to be baptized. My niece chose to be baptized and it was so fun to be a part of her special day.

My sister made imitation Cafe Rio after for lunch. It tasted just like it, yum!

There's the best homemade salsa on the side too!

Sunday Setup

Alright it’s time to go over my last week goals and set some new ones.

Last week I wanted to: have a better speed session, do 2 Jillian Michael DVD’s, and not watch TV until J’s nap at 2pm.

I had a great speed session totally 7 miles. I wanted to get 5 repeats in, and I did! Here are my splits if you’re interested: 1 mile warm up, 1 mile cool down and .5 mile sprints  followed by .5 mile cool downs.

3:56, 4:00, 3:50, 4:00, 4:00

I did in fact do 2 JM workouts, but they were the same DVD. Not sure if that counts, but I’ll take it.


I totally failed at the 2pm TV watching, J was sick so we pretty much snuggled and watched all the Dora you can imagine.

New Goals Week Feb. 3-9th

1.I want to re-try not watching TV until 2pm now that J is feeling better.

2. Do weight training 3 times this week. I really slacked off in that area last week, so time to bring it back!

3.  Find a new book to read for this month.

What are your goals?

Any book suggestions?

What did you do this weekend? Have any Superbowl plans? I’m going to my sisters, I’m in charge of the little Smokey’s and queso dip!



About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  2. I love beginning of the month posts where everyone shares their goals, so inspiring! Have you read the book, The Noticer? It is my absolute favorite. Andy Andrews is the author 🙂

    I’m glad you had fun with your family and that J is feeling better. I love tv, I definitely have to make rules for myself to not turn it on! Right now school is seriously getting in the way of my tv time though!

  4. awww so glad he is feeling better and ate that whole pancake! I just read Gone Girl, which I thought was interesting – it had some plot twists I was not expecting!
