Here is What to Do When You Don’t Feel Like Riding

by on February 26, 2013

Get your butt out of bed and go anyway!

The desire, motivation, feeling, and attitude just wasn’t there this morning.  When the alarm rang, I was this close || to rolling over and going back to sleep.  It was a late night and I didn’t sleep well.

But, before I could talk myself out of it, I was up and getting ready.  Granted, I was already mapping out the day to find time for a nap, but in reality that will not happen today.  I climbed on the fixie in the below freezing temperatures and pushed off.  I kept the pace up and added a little before the Rusty Bridge.  When it was time to roll with the group, we had 8 riders.

I don’t know exactly when it happened … I only know it did.  The fog in the head lifted, and my attitude and perspective changed.  It was a good morning to be on the bike.  I even added a few extra miles at the end.

So yes, get up and ride.  Your excuses are not reasons to stay in bed.

This Ride: 24 miles
Month: 343.5 miles
