Thursday Things + what I learned from my race

workout

monday- 3 miles on TM

tuesday-rest

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!

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!
