Too much excitement


Monday- 3 miles + arm workout

It wasn’t a great run. Lately, I’ve been lacking motivation. Maybe I need to sign up for a race. . . that always helps me kick into gear, we’ll see=)

Yesterday was a pretty normal day over here. We’re super excited to be moving, but my blog title is the opposite of what I feel about packing and actually moving ha I’m trying to pack a few boxes a day and de-clutter so we’re not moving any junk.

Something that is really fun and exciting, picking out new things for the house. Last night we were hunting for a rug at Ikea. We didn’t find much, but the boys had a blast playing tag.

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.

    I find that sometimes making a running plan/schedule to be motivating. It makes it kind of exciting to mark of the runs when you complete them.

  2. Food gets me motivated…specifically, desserts. Haha no shame in that!! Races also help keep me on track when I feel like skipping.

    Whenever I move, I pack all my belongings into plastic, rubbermaid bins. That way I can pack more and I just feel like it’s a little bit more secure/padding than a regular cardboard box. Plus, they’re reusable!

    I find by having people around me who are running and training it makes me more motivated!
    Good luck with packing!

  4. I could happily spend an entire day in Ikea & yum, yogurt!
    I definitely find my motivation wanes if I don’t have a race to look forward to.
    I hate packing for a move- unpacking is much more fun 🙂

    I am NOT a fan of moving. Did it waaaay too many times all around NYC. I do love getting to a new place and unpacking, but it’s the packing up and actually moving that I could do without.

  6. Sometimes I need to take a step back and work on other things (like strength training) and slowly the desire and motivation to run comes back.
    Also, moving is the worst! I’m sending you good moving vibes…..

  7. Good luck with moving! I agree with the taking a step back to work on other things. It’s good to have a balance with your running and do things like cross train, maybe try kickboxing, yoga, cycling…or just something fun and new to you.

  8. I wonder if you lack running motivation due to moving stress? IDK. Whenever I get stressed, I don’t want to run anymore. Which is silly because running de-stresses me…But I agree, when I sign up for races, I tend to be more motivated 🙂
