Fun Friday Facts


Thursday- 3 miles @ 10:30 pace + 8 min abs

I did some dynamic stretching before the run and followed the run with stretching, resistant band clam exercises, and foam rolling. I wanted to share my pace(previously, I haven’t been sharing it) because when you’re just getting back from an injury it’s okay to take it slower than your previous training pace(mine was closer to 8:37-9:00). I have to remind myself this and just be grateful to be running at the moment. I have a board on my wall that says, “The Journey Begins with a Single Step” so true, just take one step at a time.

Friday facts

1. J is very resourceful and found a new toy. Love this simple kid=)


2. I am not crafty. Just ask my in-laws and how many times they have tried to teach me something new. Well, I tried something again and I actually think it might turn out.


3. I have been eying this necklace for awhile over at madebymary. Mary(a good friend from college) had a 20% off sale and I had to have one! I got an uppercase J for Josh and a lowercase j for Jackson.

4. J is so comfortable around my in-laws horses now. He wants to feed them all the time. I’m actually a bit terrified of feeding them. Riding them I can do, feeding I leave to Alisha=)


5. My Birthday is tomorrow and my mom and dad sent me a cute package in the mail of my favorite things. Nike gift card, my fav snacks, and fair scones! Back home the Puyallup Fair started the weekend of my birthday and they sell these scones, they are THE BEST! Can’t wait to make them for my boys=)

what’s fun about your friday?

what are your tips for easing back into running?

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.

    Happy early birthday pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I hope you have plans as awesome enough to compare to your wonderfulness! Celebrate the day! 🙂 My dog used to play with those paper towel rolls and I was thrilled because it was cheap entertainment. He soon wised up and learned there was no food involved and quit – that was a sad day. 🙂 YAY
    for your run! Pace is never important unless you make it that way, so any time you can run without pain is a good day! 🙂 HURRAH! I’m hoping this trend keeps up!

  3. Happy almost birthday to you! Hope your weekend is wonderful! Love the adorable necklace with the big and little J….so cute!

    Glad you are back to running 🙂

  4. Happy early birthday, my dear!! So happy to see you back to running again 🙂
