This year my motivation to get out and ride sucks. I'm finally admitting it.
I'm at about 500 miles for the year, whereas last year at this time I was pushing close to 1,000. The weather has played a small part in it. So that being the case I should be around 700 for the year at this point.
I don't know why though. This has happened in past years as well. I just dealt with it as best I could. As I'm doing this year. There may not be a clear cut answer as to why this happens.
Aside from being overweight I am healthy, eat a healthy diet, etc. My stress level is normal for me anyway. There is nothing happening that I can not handle. So these things are not factors in my motivation. At least I do not think they are.
I'm trying to get and stay motivated to ride but some days its more difficult then others.
Then there have been seasons where nothing could stop me from riding, and GOD help anyone or anything that did, aside from the weather.
Is it possible that because I rode so much last season I'm a little burned out this season? So I'm not as motivated to ride? This seems to have been the pattern in the past. I ride a lot one season and am very gung ho about it then the next season I'm not as motivated and at times I could actually care less whether or not I ride. Hmm, this could be the case. But still I don't know.
1. Anyone else deal with this?
2. If you do what do you do about it?
3. What has been the reasons for your lack of motivation, what ever the reason for it?
4. What should I do about my lack of motivation?
