Mental Preparation

September 2, 2011

Where am I riding today? For me, riding invariably means planning ahead. If provided with a window on very short notice—ie. get changed and go now—I rarely make it out the door. It’s hard to get myself motivated to ride in that kind of situation. But looking forward to a ride of Saturday morning: that’s different. Very easy to get motivated and revel in the anticipation.

Tomorrow morning’s ride will likely be a shorter one—maybe 40km. But I’m already eyeing Weir’s Lane and another assault up that steep incline before finishing at Café Domestique for an espresso (and maybe a biscotti). That’s easy to picture and easy to look forward to that.

Strange that I look forward to rides, but I have to look forward in order to realize them…
