I had a similar issue back in 1991, yes, I'm old... I was 200+ miles per week, and then my appendix and I had a divorce. And I never really had the fire I'd had before. 100 a week became a struggle. My commute was 12 miles roundtrip, and that just wasn't fun for a while. Ultimately, I changed my focus. I wasn't racing anyway, and found a slower crowd. After a few weeks that helped a bunch.

I hope I helped a bit. Good luck.

I'm back to riding again. I've lost 120 pounds, still losing. 8 years ago I crashed on a bike, breaking my back and other injuries. So I'm lucky to be walking, much less anything else. Maybe I'm too dumb to stay down! I'm looking forward to some 25 mile rides, maybe some 50s. Perhaps next year, a metric century. But right now I just struggle anything over 20...
