A run that felt good and catching up


friday- legs/tooshie NTC workout

saturday- 5 miles on TM

I took a loonngg weekend break from blogging, oops! So let’s catch up.

Thursday Jackson had cousins over, moved into his big boy bed, and got his very own boba at Pirate O’s. Since getting back from our Singapore trip we decided to get rid of his binky. We just threw it away, and converted his crib into a toddler bed. J understands really well that he’s not a baby anymore and hasn’t really cared about his binky and loves his new bed. To reward him for sleeping well, he got his own boba. He kept saying,”this is so awesome, I have my very own boba!”

Friday after my first lower body workout in who knows how long(below), I headed to my MIL’s kindergarten class. She needed some help setting it up for the year so all us kids headed over to help. J loved playing on the playground and so did I;)

Saturday I finally felt like my jet lag wore off. I got up, scrubbed bathrooms, caught up on laundry, and ran on the TM. It was such a great run. I knew that would happen after my bad run on Wednesday. I love when I have a good run and it makes me fall in love with the sport all over again. This song was on repeat, so good.

After running the weather finally cleared up(it’s been raining all week in UT and even snowed in the Mtns!) so I took J to the park. He loves riding his bike around the trails. That night we had Josh’s family over for pizza, but I forgot to take any pictures, but the pizza was great and the company was even better.

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.
