    Bonking ... not feelin' well help passion me...

    Ok, i am leaving for a race that is in the indie series in washington on saterday morning and i am just not feeling it. I mean, i have been racing so far this year twice and won both, but this race i dunno. It feels like this past week i have been drifting off the montain biking and just more into.."hangin out". I have been working a little but everytime i say that i want to go for a bike ride, i just never get around to it. so i have come to the conclusion that i need some passion help. i love mountain biking and i really want to be more into it so if you could help me out.....just get me all passioned up..lol.
    thanks in advance....
    peace

    yeah is wierd----lots of times I would get up on a weekend in TX or Germany and blow off riding and hate myself and on the days I wanted to blow off but rode anyway--i loved it and was glad I made myself..

    ..but just this past saturday I had 1 of those days--and didnt go---and didnt feel bad bout not going at all--sometimes a body really does need a short break.

    so--take a break---and if ya got the passion truly the break will be just that--pretty darn short.

    I think every one goes through these periods...I know I did recently, where I just couldn't get my passion up and working about riding at all.

    I gave it some time, read a lot on these forums, looked at a lot of great riding photos like the recent 'froota' ones and I started to burn again..I *needed* that 'fix', I had to get on that bike again...even though my body felt like it was really outta shape and I was too tired.

    Once i started riding though.... BANG!! ... it was back, the same old feeling that I love...

    ............."gotta ride..gotta ride..yeah yeah"
