Grapes, Cabin and Goals


Saturday-3 miles + abs + arms

I wanted to run outside but my heel and knee were kind of sore. I’ve never felt that kind of pain/sore(?) before, so I took it to the treadmill to see if I could run without pain. Maybe I did something to it Friday, not really sure. I hope it doesn’t linger!

We woke up early Saturday morning to beat the heat and did some yard work. We finally put a drip line in for our grapes. We cleaned out the beds, pruned the grape vines and were prepping some areas for some fruit trees! I can’t wait to see the finish project. Any suggestions on what fruit trees to put in?(peaches, pears, and cherry trees do well in UT FYI)

After all our chores were done in the yard, we got ready to go up to my in-laws cabin. We love going up there and we love when it’s not completely snow covered like last time. I assure we didn’t have to take the ATV’s up to the top this time;) More about our adventures tomorrow=)

Goals from last week

1. Eat better lunches. I did a lot better this week. I stuck to leftovers, soup, or pb and honey sandwich when we were on the go. Much better than my chips, chocolate, and cracker lunches:/

2. Visit my sisters. Yup, we went to the pool and a pretty chilly day and had a blast!

3. Bring mileage back up between 25-30 miles. I hit 28 miles, not too shabby!

New Goals

1. Tempo run, get a good speed session in.

2. Finish yard work(front yard)

3. Remember water when running outside=)

Any new goals now that summer is approaching us?

How has your long weekend been treating you?

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. Way, 28 miles in a week…. way to go! Good job on your goals, that’s awesome. New goals sound good too! Can’t wait to see how your yard looks when you are finished!

  2. Remembering water when running outside is always hard for me too!! Good luck! 🙂

  3. Love your goals! I think I should probably start doing some goals like that each week, starting with house organization! It seems like when my baby (now 2 1/2) was born, all of my organization went out the window and I’ve gotta get it back!

    Great job on the running!! And plant cherry trees and then send some to me!!!
