Wednesday. Rest Day. Aaaaaaaaaah Yeah.

It’s the mid-week entry of my “This is a good way to train…I think” diary. I call it Wednesday, which comes from the Old English Wōdnesdæg or ‘Day of Wodanaz’. Wodanaz also goes by the name of Odin (O’din’t you know? <— that's a joke.)

Being Odin’s day, Wednesday is a blessed day of rest, contemplation and recovery. After the STRENGTH of the moon day and the POWER of Tyr’s Day, this is very welcome.

I try not to go anywhere near the gym, but might spend an hour of so at the dojo doing simple movement, agility and cardio training. These come in the form of jumps, rolls and bag work. It’s also a chance to practise techniques from the wrestling training from the night before.

More often than not, however, I like to do nothing at all except eat, play video games and plan world domination. It’s important for…recovery…and my mental stability. Odin be praised. He is, after all, one of the few Norse Gods anybody remembers. Him and some other guy, who I can’t seem to bring to mind. Maybe I’ll remember tomorrow…
