Workout Recaps + Blueberry Scones

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  My husband worked this weekend, which means we didn’t really enjoy a lot of down time around here, but it was still a nice change of pace.  My older daughter had a basketball game on Saturday morning (side note: if you’ve never watched six and seven year old girls play basektball, you really should, it’s hysterical and fun).  And I managed to get in a long run on Sunday despite the continued chilly temps and hail!  Yes, hail.  I don’t remember running through a hail storm before, but I had little red spots all over my face when I was done.  Come on, sunshine!

Here’s what my workouts looked like this week:

M – 60 minute strength training class

T – 6 miles total (5k in the middle for the #5bythe5th challenge, 22:52)

W – 1st session with a personal trainer (more on that later, but ouch!)

Th – 6 easy miles

F – REST

S – 60 minutes strength + 60 minutes kickboxing

S – 10 easy miles

I’m pretty tired this morning, and looking back over my workouts, I think I see why.  Time to scale it back a little this week, I think.

On another note, I made an awesome batch of paleo friendly, gluten free bluberry scones this weekend.  These were just about perfect, but maybe could have been just a touch sweeter.  If you’re not watching your sugar too much, or feel like indulging, I’d add a touch more.  But other than that, perfect texture and taste.  We’ll be making these again soon as my whole family gobbled these ones up!
