Running into 35 mph wind is awful.

I wasn’t planning on running today, but it hit 60 degrees in Sioux Falls and the next few days won’t be half as warm. The mid-week warm up prompted me to complete one of my short runs of 3 miles that I had scheduled for tomorrow.

The funny thing about Sioux Falls is whenever it warms up, the wind picks up. The first mile of my run was straight into the wind. I struggled to stay under 9 minute miles since I kept getting forced back.

Here were the stats:

Not awful, but not good.

After stretching in front of the TV for a while it was dinner time. Woo! I’ve been dreaming about my dinner all day. I decided to try to recreate my salad from Mason’s that I had on Sunday.

Mine definitely didn’t turn out as pretty, but it was almost equally delicious.

Beet & Feta Salad with Chicken

I used mixed greens, sliced beets, grilled chicken breast, toasted walnuts, strawberries instead of craisins, and feta cheese instead of goat cheese.

Topped off with Kraft lite balsamic vinaigrette. Totally forgot about the red onions which I’m a little bummed about. Oh well! It’s sitting nicely in my belly right now. I’m off to make a duplicate salad for my lunch tomorrow!
