I've not been on the mtb for months and have been concentrating on road riding. For the last 3/4 months, I have been putting in a lot of time to train for the Fred Whitton. But recently, after a few bads rides (where I felt like I was losing power on the climbs/not improving) and some other stuff, I've totally lost my bike mojo and it has become a chore. Even my training in the gym which I've always loved has also become a chore.
I've tried riding different routes, tried riding on my own, and riding with a road club, but none of that is really helping. Its not good because I'm fitter than I've ever been, but just can't enjoy it.
So my question is, can I get my mojo back and still train* at the same time if I'm hating it? I keep hoping that one good session in nice weather will fix it, but with 2 weeks to the Fred, I'm really not sure I want to carry on or take part in the Fred. But then I think I will be disappointed if I don't do it!
(*with the fred being so close, I'm pretty much at the tapering stage but still need to do a few rides to keep my legs turning)
And yes, i do realise this is my fault for only road riding and not mtb'ing
