Another long run in the books and rivalry game


Saturday- 7 miles, 10:13 avg pace +abs/arm workout

I was nervous for this run because my legs have just felt so tired/achy. I told myself to just go out there and run it as slow as I wanted. It was hard to have everyone pass me, but I’m glad I stuck to my plan. By the last 2 miles my knees and hip were pretty sore, but they are feeling 80% better after stretching and foam rolling.

I did this arm workout, I got from Karina. She is the cutest mom/wife and has the nicest arms! Her and I worked at BYU together but she has since moved out of UT=(

After my run I found the best re-fuel. I was craving Subway the whole last mile. I love  how jammed pack with veggies and protein(if you get meat) it is. It’s exactly what my body wanted/needed.


Last night was my college’s rival game: BYU vs UT and we got hooked up with some tickets and took Josh’s family with us. All the guys sat together and then all the girls sat together. It was so fun to head down there and go to a game. I haven’t been to a game in over 2 years! Unfortunately, BYU lost=( My lil sis Bree watched J which was so nice! It was a late game, so I def owe her.

Before the game, I got to babysit my friend Katie’s sweet little girl. I was in heaven! She is the cutest, most precious little thing=)


All in all, it was a great Saturday!

What’s your favorite post workout meal?

Do you crave things while you run and reward yourself with them after?

How’s your college football team doing?

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.

    Immediately after I drink something with lots of electrolytes and usually some protein. within a half hour after, I usually eat tortillas or pita bread with homemade salsa. I do not eat fast food anymore but I do love the veggie sub. I would get it with all the veggies and the chipotle mayo. Good stuff!

  2. LOVE the shoes!! Those are too cute!
