I be trippin + weekly goals


Monday- 5 miles, 10:55 pace + abs/lower leg workout

Heather met up with me dark and early in the morning to start our week with a slow run. I’m trying really hard to focus on distance and not speed right now so that I don’t get re-injured.

Well, my precautions didn’t save me from all running related injuries. Apparently, running is a dangerous sport. Running and trying to take a picture of the moon is deadly. Here is the pic that I risked my life for.


Just as I finished taking the photo I tripped over the sidewalk and hit the ground hard! Luckily I was wearing pants and my all black ninja outfit! It was like slow motion haha me and Heather had a really good laugh the whole way home.

J loves when we have to get our oil changed. Brilliant idea Grease Monkey, brilliant.

20130923-210109.jpgI’m glad we went on a walk so I had more room for dinner at Tucanos. We go twice a year for our birthdays because we get a free meal. It’s amazing! You can read more about the unique experience and sign up for the Birthday Club here.

Last week goals

1. Rest hamstring-check! It hasn’t given me any more problems

2. Eat more fruits and veggies  as snacks instead of junk- check! I’m loving edamame, cottage cheese and fruit, and sugar snap peas.

3. work on my priority list- half check! I haven’t written them down, but I feel like I straightened a lot of things out on my long run on Saturday

New Goals

1. Drink more water

2. Stop snacking mindlessly between lunch and dinner

3. write down things that J does in my journal so I don’t forget=)

Anyone else as clumsy as me? Please share your stories!

Any other Birthday clubs I should sign up for?

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. Girl I have fallen on runs more times than I can remember! I love those Brazilian style restaurants too!!

  2. I fall on runs all.the.time. Last week I was doing a trail run and totally ate it. My knee was pretty bruised and skinned up. I had an interview the next day I was planning on wearing a skirt for….haha. That quickly got changed to pants.

    I also have a serious scar on my wrist from falling on the sidewalk last year…….reminder of my clumsiness:-)

    Glad your fall wasn’t too bad! I am so incredibly clumsy – i am basically always bruised. haha. i literally bump into and trip over everything in sight!

  4. What part of Washington are you from? I’m from Othello! I don’t even try to take pictures while running, they never turn out:)
