Lazy Sunday+Goals


Monday- planned 5 miles + stretching

Yesterday was a very successful rest day. I even did a little foam rolling. . .

photo(269)Okay, that’s one of J’s foam blocks, but it does the job. Don’t worry, I’m looking for an actual foam roller I want today.

And then these happened.


Yup, one of my favorite part about Sundays are the cookies=) Growing up next to my Grandma’s house, all the cousins would meet up on Sundays and my aunt Christy would make these same cookies. Gotta love traditions.

Let’s check in with last week’s goal:

Long run (14-16 miles). I did my first 15 miler=)

Make a new healthy meal. Thank you Shannie(my cousin). This Carribean Salad was delicious and so easy. It tasted similar to my favorite, Aloha Salad from Rumbi’s.

I wanted a good tempo run. That didn’t happen. I was still recovering from my cold and wanted to really rest up for my long run.

Plan family night(Monday nights). Success!

Goals for 3/3-8

1. Tempo run. Feeling great this week, ready for some speed work.

2. Sign up and finalize the races I’ve been obsessing over.

3. Play outside with J! The forecast shows this week is supposed to be beautiful, yay!

What are your goals for the week or the new month?

Do you do your tempo work outside or on a treadmill?

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. I almost always do my tempo runs on the treadmill. . . I like to control my speed!

    My goal this week is to get back on my running schedule. Lately the classes have taken over my time but I miss my first love:running!

  6. Oh my goodness, these cookies look so amazing! My goal for this month is to not sweat the small stuff 🙂

  7. My goals for this week/month/life are to get back on track with my running (took a week off after the half) and get back on track with my eating habits. I’ve fallen off the wagon lately and haven’t been feeling my best because of it, so now it’s time to get back to my normal eating habits.
