I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up!!!

Ok, I feel it. That pressure and anger when all you want to do is ride or run or workout but can't. I think I have a bad case of the daylight savings blues. I want to ride but can't find the motivation. I would be happy just working out in some sort of way. Maybe I feel angry that I had a 12 hour day at work. Not just any 12 hour day but a 12 hour day where you bust your ass only to create more work. :(

I want to ride my bike, I want to get the hell out and do some riding. The kind that makes your legs feel like jello!

In other news I signed up for the Tour de Cure. My goal is to raise at least $1,000 to help find a cure for diabetes. I raised $850 in 6 days last year so this shouldn't be a problem but ya never know. I signed up for the 62 miler on June 14th. No wussing out next year and taking the shorter route because it's too hot, too cold, too rainy, too windy, etc. Put up or shut up. That's my motto in 2009! Well enough ranting for the evening time to get some rest, I have been home for a solid 2 hours now! WOW!

Any words of wisdom to get out of this rut would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hmmm... when I feel like that, I usually try a different type of exercise (treadmill intervals instead of running distance, water jogging instead of swimming laps, stairs intead of biking, etc).

The Daylight Savings Time doesn't really effect me, though, because I'm always working when the sun goes down. Maybe try a lunchtime workout?

Let me know if you figure it out...I don't think I'm out of my rut that started last year!:)
My trainer is set up ready for my bike to be on's a sad, sad day:( Get the Spinervals DVD's...or go to TrainRight from Chris Carmichael...they will kick your butt for trainer rides! You can download the TrainRight ones from their site.

So, there you usual I should practice what I preach!!
