This year has been kind of a bummer. Had plans to race, did my second year of TR over winter and got to 310w FTP and 4w/kg, but just feeling blah. No group rides because COVID, no races because COVID, working a ton of overtime because COVID impacted our business. Looking at my Strava fitness/freshness chart (which I’m not sure if I should even pay attention to) shows me hanging out in the 60s all year, whereas last year I had a steady climb to the 100s.
What do I do to get out of this mental rut? Some days I get out and just feel blah. I’m thinking to spend this whole week indoors doing some TR stuff to shake me up but not sure if that will really help. I’m still able to do long and fast rides, but just need a mental boost. I’m sure I’m not alone going through this, anyone got any words of wisdom?
Calendar for reference, not sure if I’m just burning out, but i feel like I have no reason to since my intensity this year is lower than last: https://www.trainerroad.com/app/career/cleanneon98/calendar
