Thursday Things + what I learned from my race


monday- 3 miles on TM


wednesday- 3 miles on TM + Shoulder ripper NTC workout

Hello! Sorry I’ve been absent the last few days, there really wasn’t much going on, so I didn’t feel like posting, then one night J threw up all over me=( But we’re all feeling well now and I’m ready to catch you up on a few things that have happened.

I’ve had a few great workouts. Something that I learned during my last race was that my strength training and Pure Barre has made a huge impact on my running. I shaved 2 minutes off my time on a hilly course without doing very many long runs. What I was doing was strength training and Pure Barre. Since I don’t have a race in the near future I wanna keep up strength training and barre and keep my mileage comfortable so I don’t burn out.

I’ve also learned that you MUST drink your water in the winter even when you don’t feel like it. Staying hydrated even in the cold months is important!


Thursday Things

Jackson had his 3 year check up(a little late, oops) and he’s in the 58% for height and 78% for weight and as goofy as ever=)

I got to meet this sweet baby girl. Josh’s cousin Nate’s wife had her 3rd baby last week. Nothing like holding a sweet newborn.

The library had a puppet show yesterday. J and all his friends went to it and it was pretty funny/entertaining.

Einstein Bagels with cinnamon cream cheese spread is pretty amazing. Probably wasn’t the best lunch choice more of a dessert(and the cookie ha), but you gotta splurge every once in awhile.

Hope everyone is having a great week! I’m hoping to catch up on everyone’s blogs today. I don’t comment much, but I love reading=)

what’s your favorite splurge meal?

have you ever had to go to the emergency room?(J’s gown made me think of it)

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.

  1. Yum! I’m craving a juicy cheeseburger, but a good bagel and cream cheese every now and then hits the spot!
