This is just a short check-in. It's very hot these days in Gleisdorf, and I have decided to shift my exercise to the morning.
A friend of mine is doing the exercises in the morning, and she said it energizes her for the day, and makes that "I've done something today already" feeling.
So, as the Saturday market kicked in under my window on Hauptplatz (Main Square), I decided to head out for a 30 min bike run. I like to include some variety to my rides if possible, and this time I took a path on the other side of the river, vs. I usually go.
Then I got further away, so I turned on the map to check where I'm heading, and looked for a circuit type of way back.
Then I arrived to a mountain, which was begging to be climbed.
Then I was in Weiz alrady, (15K approx from start), from where I new the road to home.
Then it became a 2h adventure.
It made me remember my time last year, when I made a similar trip with my bike. That was the time, when I started to do exercise. I mean exercise in general in my life, and I made a trip to Weiz. I was not exhausted that time, but it was the crown jewel exercise I made that week.
Now, a year later, a similar, longer ride, with hills, and some-off road, is just a fun thing to start the day.
How my perception of things can change.
Here's a hous that fulfills almost all my stereotypes of an Austrian house in the mountains. The only thing I miss is some grazing cows in the corner.
