Good good links #33

Hi and hallo!

Has anybody seen the sunshine? It has been MIA over here the past days and I wouldn’t mind offering a reward for its return right now. Enough of that, though, because you didn’t come to hear me ramble about the weather [or maybe you did and need to get the frustration off your chest, too?!] but for some good reads from the past week. Whatever you’re plans for the day are I hope you’re having a happy Sunday!

    I loooove that post about taking more than one rest day a week. It’s so true! Sometimes I think bloggers (and “fit” people on social media, in general) forget that even Olympic athletes take frequent rest days. It’s necessary!

    Oooh…and I’m eyeing that gratin recipe!
