Honestly there are few things I enjoy more than riding. However, I nearly always vex myself over doing so, like friggin Hamlet or approach it as an obligatory and joyless grind. Often I'll procrastinate and my attitude towards it only (predictably) worsens. Sometimes I just make excuses or make it so hugely complicated that I'll skip it entirely. More often, with great lassitude and mutterings under my breath, I'll plant my sorry butt on the saddle and about a 1/4 of a block later, if not instantaneously, I'll realize I'd rather be riding than doing anything else and it will pay the the physical, emotional, spiritual dividends that keep me a cyclist.
Does anyone else go through similar trials?
