It’s been a long time since I’ve ran 6 miles


thursday- 6 miles on TM + shoulder exercises

Happy Friday everyone! I’m so excited for the long weekend, last weekend of our summer since J starts preschool on Tuesday(joy school).

I have been running a lot of shorter runs lately because I’m not training for anything. I’ve just been running for health and ‘me time.’ I’ve been wanting to get over the 3-4 mile hump I’ve been in and yesterday I had time so I went for it. I haven’t ran 6 or more miles since my half marathon 2 months ago! The plan was to run 1 mile at an easy pace and then 1 mile on an incline for 6 miles. Well, I did that for one mile and it did me in. That was fun ha. I stuck to a moderate(for me) pace the rest of the run stopping every 2 miles to do arm exercises. My legs haven’t felt tired in soo long, it’s a welcomed feeling!

J was trying to play ninja with me while I was running. Glad I didn’t get hit with his sword, and it kept me on my toes lol and yes he’s already wearing Christmas pj’s=)

Yesterday was a beautiful day out(finally no more rain) so J and I headed to Heather’s house. The kids played and we chatted, but it wasn’t long enough. I’m missing our weekly runs but our schedules haven’t matched up lately:(

After meeting at the park for a preschool meeting we headed home. After J’s nap is the best time. He always wants to snuggle and I’m cherishing every moment because I know it won’t be long till he’s not into snuggling with his mom(;

We made some chocolate chocolate chip banana bread together too. Best decision ever, they were so good. I found the recipe here.

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.
