DOMS and Boondocks


Monday- 5 miles, 10:10 avg pace on treadmill

I was suffering from some serious DOMS(delayed onset muscle soreness) from my long run/leg workout on Saturday. I always like to go on a slow run to loosen up the muscles and then stretch for awhile. Even though I was running slower than I ran Saturday, this run kicked my trash. I’m still building up my aerobic endurance, and my lungs were feeling it.


All smiles though, so glad I can get 5 miles in and J just runs circles around me, ‘to be like mommy’ love it.

J requested last night as I was putting him to bed that we go on a walk. I promised we would in the morning if he slept like a good boy. I had no idea he would remember, but the first thing he said when he woke up was, ‘go in stroller mom?’ So, we walked around the neighborhood a bit and played in the back yard.

He brought me wood chips and weeds and said, “for you mom.” So sweet=)

For dinner I made terriyaki chicken with pineapple lettuce wraps. I’m so glad Costco had an awesome crock pot for sale9my other one cracked). I love easy crock pot dinners(just threw in a couple chicken breasts, terriyaki sauce, garlic, brown sugar and pineapple. Done!

After we took J to Boondocks. It’s a fun center that we’ve never been to before. We decided to go miniature golfing and then get a few tokens for some games. J loved just running around and Josh and I liked putting.

Do you like miniature golfing? Are you good at it?

Do you run after a hard workout to loosen muscles or rest?




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 haven’t been mini golfing in ages, we used to go every summer though. There was one right by the beach.

  2. I hate mini golfing. I’m so bad at it that I get frustrated and just start to cheat. That’s more fun 😉 I run after a long run, always (at least during this train round). I usually run after a hard weights session to loosen up the legs, too. It just makes me feel so much better.

  3. Mini golfing can be so fun! but I am terrible at it!
