thursday- 3 miles on TM + tricep/bicep workout

Yesterday my workout started out a bit rough. If I graded my workouts on how I felt the first 5 or even 10 minutes I would probably give them all F’s and quit. Over the years I’ve learned you’ve gotta give a workout at least 20 minutes before you quit(when I’m not pregnant I usually say, “Just run 2 miles” and after 2 miles I usually feel good and end up running farther). By that time, I’m feeling warmed up and good to go. I did the same as the other day where I would walk a lap then run 3.

1. J finished his first year of preschool. I feel so lucky to have found friends that we could do such a fun preschool group together (the curriculum we use I talk about here) and have such a successful year. J always loved going and can’t wait for next year. He’s grown so much! He would only do a silly smile ha

2. Josh got me my own personal AC unit. The one for our house is so expensive if you run it all day, so he got me one that can be on the main floor. It keeps the kitchen/family room nice and cool for this very hot pregnant lady=)

3. Playing with cousins. Summer time really is the best time. Whit had me and her cousin over so our kids could play together. The slip n slide was such a hit!

4. A new rug for our family room. We wanted a large rug that was really soft for when baby girl comes. Since our first floor is all hard wood, we wanted an area she could play. I love it!

5. J sneaking kisses on my belly. He loves to sing, kiss, and talk to baby sister. The videos I have of him are pretty hilarious.

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.

    So cute about J. He just seems like the perfect little boy! 🙂 I graduated from The Ohio State University! (Go Buckeyes!!) with a degree in Nutrition! I love making ice cubes with fruit for my water to keep cool in the summer!
