Race training comes with a lot of emotional ups and downs, and I think I’m in one of those downs right now. I’m just struggling a bit with motivation. I want it, don’t get me wrong. But finding the motivation to get out there and train is tough. I know I should be doing more, but I feel like right now, I’m doing the bare minimum.
I can’t let it get to me though. My bare minimum is way more than many other people’s bare minimum. And at least I’m doing something. I just have to get out there and work through this slump.
I’m sure part of it is just life. This week and next are insanely busy. Fun, but busy. And I spent two of the last four weekends out of town. I just haven’t had a lot of of downtime, and I think that’s starting to affect me.
So I’m just going to keep on keeping on and know that this down will soon turn back into an up.
Of course, then I’ll have to deal with taper madness…
