Things Thursday + Running Jitters


tuesday- pure barre

wednesday- 4 mile walk with my mom and sister

Playing a bit of catch up from the last 2 days. Tuesday while J was at preschool, I headed to my weekly barre class. I have seriously never been so sore. Trish did a whole new workout that I’ve never done and I’m STILL sore, I love it!

Wednesday I got up early and walked with my mom and sister. It is getting so cold here(Not as cold as NY, but it was 20*). I layered up and put this cream on my face to protect it from getting chapped. It was my mom’s so I’ll get the details and get back to ya.

Things Thursday

Hot cocoa after a workout outside should be mandatory, it’s the best!

I’m hoping this week is the LAST time I have to post about yard work this year. I can see the end and the blister on my hand can prove it.

Josh and I had a date night at the temple. It was just what I needed.

Okay, let’s talk running. Today I’m running my last long run before my half next week. I’m so nervous! I’m shooting for 10 miles but I don’t want to push it. I know I didn’t have a lot of time to train for this race, but I’m just taking it slow. It feels so good to be running again, I do not want to get injured.

Here’s some of my motivation:

This saying: I can do hard things because hard things make me a better me

What kind of motivation do you use to get pumped for a long run?

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.
