Preschool, pools and running groove


monday- 3 miles on TM(walk/run) + arms

Before I was pregnant I always ran 3 or more miles because anything less felt horrible. It takes me about 2 miles to feel in the groove. It’s the same when I’m pregnant, but it takes me a lot longer to run just 3 miles. So I feel like as soon as I start feeling good I have to stop because I’m out of time. I’m grateful I can run/walk at all, but MAYBE I should get up earlier to get more miles in, MAYBE ha.

Yesterday J had a preschool party. Every day this week he gets to play with his preschool buddies(each mom is taking a turn, 4 total) and have fun in the Sun. He finished his first year of preschool last week=)

After I picked him up we headed to my mom’s pool. Swimming feels SO GOOD when you’re pregnant. I hope this is what we get to do all summer until baby girl comes.

The best part about pool days? It totally tuckers J out and I get some extra snuggles from both my babies.

We met up with Josh’s family to say goodbye to his sister. She’s leaving for the summer and we’re really going to miss her! I of course got tacos, I’m not sure I want this ‘tacos once a week streak’ to end.

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. For me, it takes at least 3k to warm up and be ready for the rest of my run. An since I can only run low km right now…my runs can be a struggle!

  2. Yum!! Up in minnesota it’s hard to find good tacos, and I don’t like making them myself…..So I always get jealous of the delicious ones you post about! We don’t have many outdoor pools since we have so many lakes, but the water is still pretty chilly. I’ll have to get in it soon if I think I’m going to do a 41.5 mile triathlon.

  3. Yes – I’m doing a runner streak too! I’m trying to get in at least a mile a day. But i agree about the groove – some days I don’t feel good until 2+ miles in – some days it takes even longer!

  4. I run about 5 days a week or so, more or less. It just keeps me sane! The other days are for cross training and rest. But…I’ve done the RW run streak and I much prefer doing it during the holiday season!! 😉
