Anyway, tonight was beautiful so I went on a 6 mile run after work. I finished in 52 minutes, which isn't bad. However, I have been trying to improve my speed, so tonight I ran a loop with several hills. I practiced sprinting up the hills to build strength and endurance with short recovery periods in between.
Dinner after my run was a Walnut and Pear Salad with Shrimp and a Champagne Honey Vinaigrette. I started off by toasting the walnuts to bring out all of their nutty flavor.
Before building the salad, I tossed some baby greens with a little low-fat pear champagne vinaigrette. I drizzled a little honey over the salad and tossed it again. I love the sweetness the honey adds. To build the salad, I added in the pear slices, halved grapes, grated parmesan, and fresh cracked pepper. I tossed everything together and topped the salad off with some grilled shrimp.
