I've been letting the world intrude waaay too much into my riding. I rode 7 times in two weeks at Pathfinder, (Which given the nature of the course, isnt so bad) but since then, I've only been on the MTB 4 times. I have however completed the cross bike finally, and identified the final punch list to put Molly back where she belongs after robbing parts for the cross rig. SO it wasnt soley unproductive, just not enough riding.
The thing is, when I lay off for a while, there is the inevitable soreness and fatigue the first few days after a ride, so what I do is justify to myself if I know I cant stay in the program for a few days, i will just skip the ride altogether.
This is NOT productive.
