Just a Typical Tuesday


Tuesday- 3 miles, 9:39 pace, slow and really hard for me. Today’s run was just one I wanted to be finished before I even started. I’m glad I did 3, it’s better than 0 in my mind. After, I did core workout, I think it will be the death of me. At least I had my buddy alongside ‘working out’ with me=)


His version of planking, just bring that tooshie down a bit and it's pretty good=)

We met up with my family yesterday at The Lion House in Salt Lake. It’s this cute little restaurant that makes really good comfort food. Seriously, I basically had a delicious Thanksgiving meal. J loved the jello, and I love mashed potatoes! (I’m glad I got a good workout in today, my long weekend eats have been so delicious and not so nutritious. I need to keep up the workouts all week!)


We walked around the new shopping center called City Creek and let the kids play by the fountain for awhile. J was terrified of it at first, but then wanted to play by it like the other kids.


Today I’m catching up on laundry and scrubbing my house. I put it off all weekend so we could play. It feels good to get everything back in order and be back to a routine.

Only half of it. How can 3 people produce so much laundry?

Just a typical day here, nothing too exciting.

What’s your Tuesday like? Anything exciting?

Any good core workouts I should try?


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.

  1. Pretty typical Tuesday over here for me too…core workouts! Love them and don’t do them enough. I like to do mountain climbers, planks, russian twists to work my core.

    cycle class and a littler run today with some quick upper body too. it’s sooo cold out today. it looks beautiful but very deceiving. tuesday nights at the gym they have a family fitness class that i take my kids to. they LOVE it. it’s usually circuits with a few active games. and after that is our relief society activity. we’re making magnet cups to keep on the fridge so that our kids can get their own drinks of water. it should be cute!

  3. I heard the nike app has some great core workouts, you should check it out

  4. Typical Tuesday for me here too! Work from 8:30 – 5 and then class from 5 – 6:15. I have to study for an exam I have tomorrow and watch Pretty Little Liars and then go to bed 😀 i’m exhausted.

  5. Oof, that core workout sounds tough. I’ve had those days when you don’t feel like running and you’re super slow. At least you listened to your body and didn’t push it, and getting some easy miles in will probably help you feel better. My day is pretty typical, too–cleaning, etc. Have a great Tuesday!

  6. I totally understand your sentiment about laundry – it never ends! love J’s core workout! 🙂

  7. I love when there’s a little gravy lake in my mashed potatoes!
    Nothing exciting today except 5 miles and a yoga class. 🙂

    Long weekend= lots o laundry 😦
    Love how your little guy is mimicking you, too cute!

  9. This reminds me that I need to do laundry! As in, actually fold the clothes that have been sitting in my dryer for two days!!

  10. when I do core workouts(which has been unbelievably rare in the last several months), I love youtubing the Pop Pilates videos – she has great stuff!

    Even though your run wasn’t the best, good for you on pushing through & getting it done 🙂 Glad you had a wonderful rest of your Tuesday. Love the photo of you & your family <3.

  12. Your little one is too precious! What is that app you’re using for your ab workout? Looks neat!
