I remember watching Record Breakers as a kid and Roy Castle told us every week that if we want to be a record breaker, dedication is all you need. So here I am, signed up to a 100 mile ride, needing to get out on the bike more often and finding a huge amount of inertia which is somehow getting in the way. I had earmarked today (or rather this evening as Wednesday is the last day of my paid working week) to get out for at least an hour on the bike. As I left the house Mrs AB commented on how warm it was, as we got the bus and the train the sun poured in and walking across the University campus it felt like summer had arrived.
Yet here I am, trying to both find excuses not to go out and/or feeling an overwhelming feeling of lethargy. I keep asking myself if it’s just me? Have I taken on too much? What would Bradley Wiggins be doing in my situation?
I know that once I’m out there the feeling is great. Just how do I overcome that initial hurdle and gain some realistic dedication? Any advice from anyone?
