I’ve been contemplating whether or not I wanted to post this, but decided to go ahead and do it. Lately I have had absolutely zero motivation to train. I am a pilot in the Navy, a dad of 17 month old twin boys, and married to a great woman who just started chemotherapy for breast cancer.
I used to try my best to fit in a TR ride as regularly as possible, but with the addition of the cancer treatment on my family’s plate I am just finding it so hard to make time for myself. When I get the kids down for bed, or when I get home from work I just want to sit on the couch.
So my question to the community is, how do you find the motivation/energy to pursue training on the bike? I usually work around 50-55 hour work weeks, and our boys go to a Montessori school on weekdays. Currently I am getting a two week work break to focus on the family, but I have no clue how I can make time/energy to take care of myself as well.
Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
