where has my riding mojo gone?
i have just go over a serious bout of lost mojo…….no only riding, but everything.
life felt shit, could not get motivated to do anything except booze, missed my son.
just had a 3 week holiday doing nothing at all….total chill out.
i feel much better, i think that most people go through a bit of grey time now and then.
it is just a matter of riding it out, and coming out the otherside refreshed and ready for life again.
good luck…….. 😀Posted 4 years agomunrobikerMember
It’s only 6 days. I’m having a 6 month long mojo loss- I still ride 2 or 3 times a week most weeks, but some weeks I just can’t be arsed and I regularly find excuses to not go and ride. I’m riding well but I do have to force myself out and don’t get itchy legs as often. I just seem to like evenings in with the wife too much.Posted 4 years agocbmotorsportMember
In all seriousness, it happens to us all. I’ve done nothing this week whatsoever, last ride was last Saturday. Made excuses this week, couldn’t get motivated. Maybe you needed a rest?
Worth planning a special ride somewhere you haven’t been before?, or take a trip to a great riding location? Something to look forward to and give you a kick start.Posted 4 years agoscandalousMember
Its been prevalent for ages and then disappeared back end of last week.
had been getting in between 70 and 150 miles a week but a big fat 0 over the past 6 days.
had plenty of opportunity to ride but just couldn’t face it.
at what stage should I start to PANIC?????!!!!!Posted 4 years ago
Riding to get in the mileage is a sure fire way to lose your mojo. Ride to enjoy mountain biking, to enjoy the outdoors, the sights and smells. Take your computer/GPS off forget about strava and just have fun.
My 40 minute commute, and the state of the local trails have done for my desire to ride the MTB.
When back in Bradders, we’ll see.Posted 4 years agodoboMember
i find mixing things up helps, for instance i run and ride and do some body weight exercise.Posted 4 years ago
if you cant face a ride fall back to a run or some body weight exercise. really helps in the winter when its dark and wet.
also setting some goals help, short weekly goals like 4hrs riding a week or 2 runs and 2 cycles per week for instance and then a big goal like a race event or a 100 mile cycle, make sure its realistic
now go cycle a new route tomorrow after work.. im running so i can get back home quicker to have a beer 🙂Capt. KronosSubscriber
Mine went missing last week after a month of no riding. I found it again though, somewhere around the stepping stones in Grizedale… then lost it again a few days later when I high sided after sliding off the trail (damn dust – not used to riding in such conditions!)Posted 4 years ago
