The Lazy Days Continued and a Discount Code


Friday- 4 miles on treadmill + booty workout

After reading Abs of Steel’s workout on 1 mile repeats I wanted to give it a try. I only did 1 mile at my race pace but, surprisingly, I felt great! Sometimes I get so stuck in the same ol’ pace and I just need a push or inspiration to go a little faster. After I did the following exercises 3 times.


Since J is still coughing and has a runny nose I put him in a sweat suit for the day. The thought of jeans when you’re sick makes me cringe. He added his (over sized) ‘cowboy boots'(that’s what he calls them) to make the whole outfit really work.

Most of the day all he wanted to do was watch TV in my bed with his Ninja Turtle blanket, binky(he normally only gets it when he sleeps), and Josh’s tablet(sorry Josh). Hey, when you’re sick, you can have whatever you want.

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.

    glad that the speed work went well for you! and that bag is super cute, I really like small over the shoulder bags.

  2. This weekend we are having lunch with my in-laws since they are in town for the day, and we don’t really have anything else planned. Today is my long run for marathon training, so I am running 11 miles at some point. I am also trying to finish my book I am currently reading. I am towards the end and it’s so good! I hope your little man gets better!

  3. So far I have blogged, read blogs and eaten breakfast. 🙂 Off to a good start! haha Went to the ice castles last nigh in Midway. So fun! You should go if you haven’t yet, once little J is better. I think he’d love it!
