Snow and a leg workout that might kill me



Saturday- 3 miles on treadmill + leg workout

I was so very grateful to have a treadmill yesterday morning. I had planned on braving the snow, but when I saw it was a total windy/snow blizzard outside I took it to the good ol’ mill.  Added bonus: I don’t have to put on a billion layers.

After, I did this Nike Training Club workout for the first time. I only made it 1/3 sets of the below exercises. My legs were already like jello!


I’m loving the snow this month. J loves playing in it, and it’s an extra workout shoveling my driveway. Yes, we’ve shoveled more than 4 times in the past 2 days ha

Let’s back up to Friday. I went up to my sister Leah’s house with my 2 other sisters and their kids. We always try and get together once a week even though 2 of my sisters live an hour away. It’s always so much fun.

He even played in the snow with the older cousins(he’s the one laying down).

We got home, ate dinner with Josh, and then opened up one of our Christmas books. Last year, Josh’s mom got J a bunch of Christmas books for a Christmas countdown. I’m still collecting some, but have about 19 books!


He was really excited to open a present. It’s a fun tradition and allows us to talk about Christmas. Some are fun/silly books and others talk more about Christ.

We stayed inside all day Saturday making yummy food and spending time as a family. It was perfect. We played pirates and made a telescope =)

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.

    Sounds like a perfect weekend so far! My favorite comfort food would have to be any type of soup, stew or chili! I made a huge pot last night of soup and can’t wait to eat it after my run today! My favorite strength workout is arms for sure, you see results so much faster!

  2. That snow looks beautiful! I wish I had a treadmill at home. Since it has been so icy here I have just had to do workouts inside and incorporate cardio with moves like burpees, jump squats, jumping jacks, and jumping lunges. It works though. 🙂 My favorite part to work out now is arms, which is so strange because this used to be my least favorite part! Have a great Sunday!

  3. So fun! It’s funny because I heard it was snowing yesterday but it didn’t hit us in my neighborhood until last night, right as I was leaving for my cousins’. I had to turn around and come home 😦 I LOVE J’s cute excited face! He’s so dang cute!
    Also we need to hang out again soon!
