Treat yo self tip Tuesday and biggest pet peeve


monday-3 miles on TM +core workout

Yesterday I got up and started some laundry and putted around the house. I didn’t feel like running, and knew instantly if I ran I would have a great workout. For some reason the days I don’t feel like running I and I do anyways I have really good workouts.

I haven’t been doing any kind of speed work or really all that much running lately. This summer(besides the one race I ran) I decided to focus on other things and just run casually. Yesterday I just felt like running fast, so I did. There’s something about just running to run that feels really good. I ran 3 miles in 26 minutes just to prove to myself I can. Sometimes you just gotta do it(:

Unless your hair tie breaks then all bets are off. But seriously, the worst pet peeve ever!

After running J and I stopped by the good ol’ car wash. I grew up always washing my own car, but our new house has a crazy steep driveway and it makes it very difficult to wash a car. I guess I’ll just have to settle for the car wash;)

You all know I really dddrreeaaddd grocery shopping. Lately I’ve actually really been enjoying it because I get myself a pre-made salad to enjoy when I get home. I always get so hungry while I’m shopping and when I finally get home, put all the groceries away, feed J I’m hangry and want to eat anything and everything. It’s the best treat to be able to just sit down and enjoy a salad. Now I look forward to my shopping trips and treating myself.

It wasn’t very hot yesterday and it was super windy. So why not go to the pool? My sister and mom were game so we headed out. We stayed for awhile until we heard thunder. We got out just in time to beat the rain(true Seattle girls at heart).

Later Jackson and I caught a ride with my parents to my sisters house(Josh had to work late). My brother and his family are in town for another night so we all get together and made some smore’s.

do you wash your car or go through a car wash?


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 have not had a single s’more this summer, I’m a little bit outraged 😉 Better fix that soon! Treating myself usually involves chocolate or workout clothes.

    I hate when my hair tie breaks! I haven’t taken the girls threw a car wash…that’s going on my list of things to do this summer. I’m sure they will love it!

  3. I totally agree with you about pony tail holders breaking; I hate it and it’s one of my pet peeves too! Way to run when you didn’t feel like it! Isn’t it funny how the workouts we don’t want to do end up being the best ones? That was so me this morning!

    I live in an apartment, so it’s kind of impossible to wash my own car…that being said, I probably get my car washed twice a year at the most – haha – not very good about it 🙂

  5. Broken hair ties are the worst! Right now I”m using the skinny ones that stretch out really bad and are just as annoying as broken ones. I’m all about getting a car wash, every now and then my dad will detail my car which is heavenly, but then he claims I am messy.

  6. Haha, I NEVER wash my own car! I always take it to a $5 car wash and use the free vacuums, or I go to an oil change place that throws a car wash in for free! You are so teeny tiny, and man, smores sound good!

  7. I am like a little kid. I love the carwash! Sometimes I wish it took longer haha

  8. runsaltrun says:

    I literally just yelled out loud at that broken hair tie pic. That enrages me!
    Haha your car wash photo is so cute. Going through the car wash is one of Betty’s favorite past times. 🙂

  9. Broken hair ties are the worst! Great job on the speedy run. 👍

  10. Love the car wash!! Going thru there is really so relaxing to me 🙂
