Thursday- Rest

Thankful Thursday

1. Thankful for my tempo run yesterday. I didn’t want to do it (even though, I usually love tempo days) but I did it anyway. It wasn’t my fastest, but it felt great.nBy mile 2 I was glad I decided to run. (1 mile w/u, 5×800’s, recovery 800 in between each, 1 mile c/d).


2. Thankful for my hard working husband. He hasn’t felt great for several months but he still gets up, goes to work, and comes home ready to play with J and I.


3. Thankful for this chocolate milkshake. If you haven’t noticed I have a rather large sweet tooth. My SIL suggested getting one the other night at dinner, um, yes please.

Unfortunately, in the months that we haven’t been to the park J forgot about his love for swings and is now terrified… On a happy note, he loved the slides and  the melting snow=)

4. Thankful that I can run. I never thought I would be able to run more than 20 miles a week, and now I’m running around 30 miles a week comfortably. It’s amazing what our bodies can do and I’m so thankful I found a hobby that I love. I hope everyone can find that thing that makes them happy.

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’m sure when the weather warms up and you’re making more frequent park trips, J will rekindle his love for the swings 🙂 And 30 miles a week is fantastic, can’t wait to get there!

  2. So wonderful that you have so many things to be thankful for. I have a big sweet tooth too but not a big milk shake fan, I am a gummy candy lover
