I seemed to disappear from my blog this week, but it's been an off week around here. I got my training runs in this week and feel great, but work has been busy! So, I've actually been busy working instead of writing.
However, I did find time to get some good reading for your weekend. Here goes:

4. Lastly, this is a short, personal essay/thought about the emotional benefits of working out. I stumbled upon Fit Fluential through a few of the training blogs I read, and I really like their concept. Average, everyday people who are fitness gurus or enthusiasts, making strides and being examples in the fitness world. This article is by one of their ambassadors and just talks about how she feels after she works out. I think it goes back to this post of mine a couple of weeks ago. And it's especially resonated with me this week. I've been crazy busy and exhausted, so of course I didn't want to get up early and run this week. But I did. Two times. And then I went to the gym after work last night when all I wanted was to sit on the couch. And I felt absolutely great afterwards. Working out centers me. It lets me let go of everything else from my week, and I find myself rejuvenated. Just think about how healthy you'll feel afterwards, emotionally, next time you don't want to work out.
Happy reading everyone! Enjoy the weekend!
