I came out of my last race on a natural high -- my times for that race were the best I've ever had, the event was super fun and I was highly motivated. But in the interim, I've had job stress and long days at work, a fun vacation that resulted in me missing 5 days of real training, and bad weather at home that's kept me off my bike. I typically follow a training plan where I do my longest training sessions 2-3 weeks out from the race and I missed most of those sessions entirely!

I was really questioning whether I even wanted to do the next tri I'd planned, but I made myself register this morning. Yesterday I did a short ride on the stationary bike at the gym (since the weather here was still awful) and this morning I swam half a mile. But if I'm not going to crash and burn on the 18th, I need to stick with it and not let myself drop any more training sessions!

Any tips or tricks for when you're struggling with motivation and kind of bored with your training routine?
