Keep the good around you. Positivity works and you feed off of it. I don’t know why it takes so much to keep me motivated but when you comes, you have to run with it. Sometimes you get stuck in the rut of things. I need to dust off my road bike and go for some long rides again.
I get a kick out of riding my other bike around town but something is mentally freeing when you go for a long ride. There’s a mental challenge to keep going but also, it’s pretty meditative too because it’s just you and the road. You just go for as long as you want to, especially when you’re out on the open country roads. I’m going to try my new pedals once I figure out why they are so weird.
My Shimano 105s have worked their hearts out but I want to feel a difference under my feet. So I’ll see how that works out and report it.
