Kneaders to the rescue


Wednesday- 5 miles on treadmill + core workout

Can you believe it’s already Thursday?  I feel like the weeks are flying by and Christmas will be here and gone before we know it. That does me Spring will be here, so that’s exciting=)

I’ve been doing a lot of lower mileage this month and trying to do more strength training. It’s nice to take a month to just chill since I’m not training for any races. I did however, have a goal this week to run 5 miles, check! I’ve been doing a lot of 3 and 4 so it was nice to push a little more yesterday.

I don’t know why, but they split and it’s horrible and disgusting. I can’t keep enough lotion on them, any ideas on how to help me? Any who, it was the best massage, thanks Bree!

While Bree was over a started prepping dinner. I planned to make a tortilla soup in the crockpot, but the chicken never cooked! And just like that my yummy cooking streak is over! Don’t worry, Kneader’s saved the day!

I wear gloves when I do the dishes and I constantly put lotion on.

What’s your favorite Christmas movie?







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. Nice job with the tread and core workout. It’s been so cold here too…I’ve been able to wait until afternoon to run but I would prefer to run in the AM. I am always wearing gloves and putting lotion on too. I read somewhere coconut oil is good for it (I just haven’t tried it out yet).

    J’s smile is so genuine!! So cute! And I have not more ideas for you, I think what you are doing for your hands seems like the right thing to be doing! I’m sorry! My favorite holiday movie is Four Christmases, such a funny and romantic holiday movie!

    My hands get soooo dry in the winter too – I think it’s worse because we both live in really dry climates 😦
    My favorite christmas movie is (don’t laugh!!)….the muppet christmas carol – just loved it ever since I was a little kid!

  4. I have the same problem with my hands. I used to have to get a special cream, and I would put it on before I went to bed at night and then wear these white gloves to bed. The gloves would hold the moisturizer in from the cream and help heal my hands. My hands aren’t as bad as they used to, but maybe a special cream from your pharmacy would help? On a different note, I love the fact that your son hugged the tree! Too cute!!

    I put Vaseline on my hands then slip them into some soft gloves while I relax at night. I also keep a thick cream by my bed, couch and bathroom sink so that its always within sight to remind me 🙂

  6. I have so many favorite Christmas movies! This year I am really loving the Hallmark and Lifetime channel movies 🙂

  7. I would make sure the lotion you are putting on is a good quality, no fruity scents or anything. You could maybe try coconut oil.

  8. I have this cocoa butter vaseline I love to lather on! I put some on after my cold run/hot shower this morning 🙂

  9. The only lotion that you will ever need – Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream! It is amazing – just a little bit goes a long way, there is no scent, and it is so great at relieving chapped hands!
