Birthdays on Birthdays and jello legs


Friday- .5 mile warm up + leg workout

It has been FOREVER since I’ve done a NTC (Nike Training Club) workout and it killed my legs. I felt like I had just ran the downhill half again. I just ran enough on my treadmill to get warmed up, then I gave my all to the leg workout. I did all three sets of the following workout and my legs were already shaking my set 2. Lesson learned: don’t forget to do leg day, ever. PS I’m not gonna lie, those split jumps were NOT happening. I subbed them for a plank ha

Friday night we took J on our date with us. We headed to All Star bowling and had a great time. Embarrasingly, J beat me. Yup, I lost the first round and I was trying, I’m a VERY competitive person ha Josh smoked both of us both rounds.

Saturday we did some yard work, helped clean our church building, and then headed to J’s cousin Cal’s birthday party. My SIL Whit did such an amazing job. Cal loves all things tractor/digger related so he had a “construction party. The snacks and cake were so cute.

After Cal’s party we headed to my sister’s house for another birthday party for my nephew Max. My brother Tanner was in town too! It was nice to see him, but I really wish he could’ve brought his cute family!

It was a jam packed weekend, so Sunday was nice to just be home and relax. After church we all took naps, the boys napped forever, it was perfect.

who’s running today?

tell me one highlight from your weekend!

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 know it’s meant for a little kid but I got really excited when I saw that cake. I’m a sucker for creative birthday cakes, especially when they involve chocolate! If it’s any consolation you’d easily beat me at bowling, I am a horrendous bowler.

  2. I ran this morning! IT’s nice now that I’m coming back from injury but it’s so dang humid in Florida!

    Highlight of my weekend: Food truck festival!!! 🙂

    That cake is so cool! My nephews are really into trucks and other construction vehicles, so they would love that one too.
    My weekend was pretty low key- looking forward to a long holiday one coming up!

  4. I have jello legs today too!! I did Body Pump for the first time yesterday and I am REALLY feeling it!
