... anyway I am just mentally tired after the week.
I used to wait for the Friday night: finally I'm free, I can do something, no work coming on Saturday, and so on.
However, over the years, I learned that it's not worth to plan high-value things, creative tasks, and very engaging "private-work" projects for Friday evening.
It turned out I was already too tired to study something new, plan big personal projects, or solve big problems.
So lately, I started to use this time for sports.
Today, I did a 1h bike ride to the nearby Weiz, then had Yoga for 1h 40 minutes, then rode back to Gleisdorf.
All the stress of the week was digested in my exercise. Clean head, re-energized mind!
And I look forward to the weekend refreshed, and I have this good feeling that I have accomplished something good already for the weekend.
The only thing about it that I have to plan ahead and organize my environment in a way that can easily start doing it.
Otherwise, my mental tiredness builds up an anti-motivational resistance, and I just wander around in the apartment, without doing anything sensible, I mean I don't really do anything, but I don't have a good rest either.
When is the best time to plan a Friday workout?
Monday of course, at the beginning of the week! When I don't plan it on Monday already, chances are on Friday I don't have enough energy to plan it in.
This picture is on the way to Weiz (from Gleisdorf).
It says "Vulgo", which means that before the family Färder was there, and people know it as "Bauernhof Färder" (Farm of family Färder). However, the family Schwarz bought the place and uses it now. But they continue to use the name "Färder", as this how everybody refers to it in the region.
It's kind of branding/franchise of local agriculture.
I learned this word last week in my German class, and was happy to see it immediately in real life! Funny! :-)
Do you exercise on Fridays?
If yes, what is your experience about it?
If no, why?
Any tips, ideas, suggestions welcome!
