Feeling happy about a workout time can be difficult to find. Here is what I do?
Be positive: I am a half full kind of person. I believe that it is easier to build yourself up if you look to what is good about the situation and identify what went wrong. Once you have seen what needs to improve, set a goal and plan steps to reach that.
Baby steps: Progress can be slow and there will be set backs. Trying to tackle too much at once can be demoralizing. Figure something that is a baby step in the right direction.
When you feel strong try to push it.: I don't always feel good at the start: muscles are sore, the breathing is hard, you need to warm up.
Give yourself time to warm up.: On some rides it takes me a couple of miles . Some rides it may take me up to 45 minutes to feel good.
It is only one workout: I use the Strava app, but there are others. I can see how I did compared to other rides. Accept that there will be be ups and downs. How are you trending?
How does it compare to earlier workouts?;
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
