Like the OP my youth was also spent participating in seasonal sports. The typical football, basketball and baseball regime. So my pattern has always been a break between sports especially since basketball was recreational for me. These days my only sport is cycling and I must admit it has been hard for me to adjust to enjoying it without driving myself to "get in shape for the season." But, riding in rain, cold and snow is not my thing either. And, putting my well-being in the hands of two dime sized tire contact patches in extreme weather just doesn't feel like a good thing to me. I'm happy for my off season here in New England and go to the gym 2-4 times a week just to keep busy. It's no longer about getting ready for the next race. It's about health and happiness.
