seems to be lacking lately. Mix in a ton of extra work (a good thing) with some extra travel and my bike has just been staring at me.
I rediscovered one of my favorite mental tricks today - just put the bike duds on and there's a 99.9% chance I'm heading out the door. I squeaked out 7 whole miles today,which reminded me that I forgot to go on a shake down ride after I replaced the chain and did a bunch of maintenance last week. Oops. I guess that means today's ride was the shakedown and I had to stop 3 or 4 times to tweak the RD.
My other problem seems to be excuse making - especially lately. Kids have commitments from 5 to 8 or so most days and work tails off around 4 so I need to figure out how to carve out an hour and a half to two hours in there without leaving the kids stranded somewhere.
Anybody else have any locked-down strategies for overcoming laziness? I actually really enjoy riding my bike once I'm physically on it, so that's not the issue.
