The scones turned out pretty delicious! Next time, however, I need to roll out the dough a little thinner before putting it in the oven. The very middle was a little undercooked, but that was user error. The two people who tried the scones were pleased (ok, so one of those two people was me, but I think I still count).
Saturday was not only long run day, but it was also National Blueberry Pancake day, and so, my post-run meal was blueberry pancakes. Saturday was basically an awesome day.
And now, since it's been inquired about, a relationship status update. I've mentioned Hot Gym Guy in several posts (like here, here, and here). Well, things have...progressed and we are now "together". I normally get annoyed when people refer to people on their blog by nicknames, but "Hot Gym Guy" (or HGG) has proven to be such a popular nickname, that I'm pretty sure I'm sticking with it on here. You're welcome :)
Yesterday I set out to do my 4-mile run outside since the weather was incredible. I started out feeling a lot better than I normally feel during the first mile or two, but I knew that I'd get tired out fast if I kept at that pace, so I walked up the first hill, and then kept on trucking. I literally couldn't slow down. It was like I was running with someone else's legs. At the two-mile mark I decided to see if I could blow my previous 5k PR time (30:40) out of the water. When I finished and checked out my Garmin time, BAM! 26:50; a pace of 8:39! That's a 1:10 improvement. It may be time to register for another 5k.
And now, did you win any items in my auction? I've followed up each numbered comment with the winner. Go check it out! (I still need email address for a couple of you).
