I'm in the midst of a few weeks of too much business travel. A bit stressed, but nothing I can't handle. But I'm also sort of in a cycling slump. Wasn't on the bike yesterday, or Monday, both VERY long days. (Monday had to drive 180 miles each direction to meet with a client, and both times through L.A. rush hour, Thursday flew to Bay area in the morning, drove fifty miles to a client, drove back, flew home and arrived at 11:00 p.m.).
You'd think I'd be itching to squeeze in a ride today, but I'm not. And I leave Sunday night for two more days on the road, and then next Friday another two days with the first client, and so on.
I know I'll ride this weekend. But for whatever reason, I just have NO ambition today. The end of the month is almost here and I'd love to pile on a lot of miles just to stay ahead of my annual goal, but that's not motivating me either. The weather isn't bad, cool, but not bad.
I just feel like I'm in a slump. You guys ever get like that?
EDIT: Let me add that I try to ride every day of the year that it's possible to ride, even if it's only five miles. That's because I know there will be travel days, long client delivery days, bad rainy days, maybe even (perish the thought) sick days. So any other day that it's possible to ride, I ride.
