Wednesday- 3 miles on the treadmill + 8 min abs + arm definer workout

I started the run with a dynamic stretching video to warm up my muscles. I’m hoping by doing that I can prevent future injuries. After the 3 mile run I did this 8 min ab video. It has ridiculous music, but it hurts so good.

cute outfits too

I also did 2 rounds of these arm workouts with 8lb weights.


Unfortunately, my leg soreness has returned. I think it might have something to do with soccer? I only play one soccer game a week, but I’m not sure what else could be doing it. I’m pretty bummed=(

Yesterday morning J and I headed outside in our PJ’s to enjoy the fresh air. It’s so nice in the morning because it’s not super hot just yet. He found a rollie pollie bug for the first time and wanted to watch it’s every move.


Later in the day we met up with one of Josh’s really good friend all growing up. They live in Georgia and we’re in UT so we haven’t seen them since we got married( 3 years ago). It was so fun to chat and J found a new friend.

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. Love J’s flip flops 🙂 And there’s a Groupon for 70$ worth of paper products (business cards, stationary) from vistaprint for only $17. I jumped on that 🙂

    oh my gosh that picture of J examining the bug is too cute. so great you got to catch up with old friends !

  3. I call those bugs potato bugs. Why? I have no idea, but that seems to be what everyone calls them around here. That NTC workout is crazy! I was going to try it the other day, but chickened out.

  4. I love those spandex shorts on that woman in the ab video. She’s gettin it, huh? 🙂 I did some abs and arms last night and it was pure torture… Gotta start somewhere, right?
    Your friends in GA! You should come visit them so you can come visit me and teach me your treadmill ways! Get on it! 🙂 Haha, but that’s cute that J had a little friend. Little kids getting along and playing together is so adorable to see. I am all about that PRO deal… 🙂 I can’t decide which color to buy next though – I have pink and purple. What do you think? Have a fab day!

  5. Oh that PRO Compression is such a great deal!! Wish I lived closer to you!!

    Omg the last picture of the two boys holding hands ❤ ❤

  7. I love pro compression! I do a lot of strength work at home (arms and abs) along with YOGA and that has been helping me stay injury free. Also dynamic stretching is wonderful! Right before our long runs on the weekends, myself and the other coaches lead our group through a short dynamic stretching session. We do butt kicks, lunges, side shuffles and etc. Those are very effective!

  8. I love a good deal! And aren’t those Nike workouts the best? So intense, but awesome at the same time!

    I love to weight lift (helps prevent further injury and also strengthens your body), kickbox, cycle and I just started to try swimming 🙂

  10. Yoga is my favorite cross training but I love weights and spinning too 🙂
