I started commuting earlier this year. I was riding an average of 3 days a week. I did it long enough that it became habit.
Last week I had to travel for work, and didn't ride at all. This week, I skipped Monday because of debris everywhere from the windstorm. I rode Tuesday, but I haven't ridden since.
Today, I overslept. I had planned on riding. I've found my motivation lacking. I thought it would get easier as time went by.
I do have a 33-mile round-trip, and the mornings are getting cooler and darker. Financially, I have incentive. Parking just went up to $7 per day, plus I use $4 to $6 in gas per day (depending on which car I drive). So everyday I ride, I save at least $11. Yet I still find it hard to get on the bike in the morning.
On days that I do ride, I feel great when I get to work, but I dread the ride home.
How do I get past this?
