Good Run, Great Salad

Went for a brisk 2 mile run tonight. I haven't been doing much of it this year, so I'm trying to start up again. I've been having a bit of trouble getting into running...it's very much a mental thing with me. My brain is always ready to quit way before my body actually needs to. I set a 2 mile goal tonight and just did it...easily. I'm going to just keep on adding distance until I can work up to a good amount. I'm going to tell my brain to shut up and just do it. I think I'll be able to listen to myself.

After the run, I wanted a light dinner, so I went with a tasty, quick, and simple salad that I found quite awhile ago on speedvegan's blog. It's an arugula salad with agave-mustard dressing, topped with pan-fried seitan and toasted sunflower seeds. It really doesn't take long to make, and it is so good that it's become one of my stand-by meals.
