Allright! This morning I finished the 18 h a week study goal. It works a lot better, if I focus on the topics I want to get done and not only on the time I put in. I am happy with my performance this week.
I am currently still at the lab and I will do another 30 min study session, when I get home. This is just because I really hate studying after a long day - and to learn how to deal with this suck, I will do it. Just for training purposes. The moment will come this semester, when I need to up the study game a lot more! So I am training for that.
Reboot: Here and there a few critical moments, but self talk, written in my diary on the pc or via voice memo helped me always to stay on path. I feel good and I feel a sence of pride for this week.
The workout plan I started is diversified. So there is running, strength and muscle endurance work. I did the running on trails and the muscle endurance work on the rough forest ground (it was a core cycle) - getting dirty was a lot of fun, the cycle it self was a pain in the ass. General I try to keep the suck factor high and push myself. Because I think the main problem last semester was, not commiting fully, also with the reboot: I always was looking for realxation, for a little break, like "just watch a few Youtube Videos" or "its fun to skip this workout" "you studied enough" - and that put me in a place, where I was not satisfied with how I look, how I perform and how I show up every day. I developed quitting as an possible option - and this is a very dangerous and slippery slope for me.
So my training and studying these days is of course to perform well, but also to a big portion to train my mental ability to stay put to a task until it is finished, no matter how hard it is and how less I want to do it.
After the small study session this evening, I accomplished everything I wanted, for this week. A small 30 min run is sceduled for tomorrow, otherwise I think I might sleep in and read a lot and do some stretching, enjoy my free day.
Wish you all the best!
