I motivated enough to ride the 15 miles to work on Monday. The roads were wet but the temperature was warm and the air was dry. I got a late start and didn't get to my desk until after 9:15 but I felt great. I've realized that the 40 minute drive which usually includes fighting traffic along Rt 9 and I95 leaves me in an anxious, distracted, and unsatisfied state of mind. I much prefer riding to work and I end up being more productive and less distracted as a result.
Now if only I was motivated to gear up at 7am when the temp is still below freezing. I'm going to make more of an effort to do so though. Anyone got tricks to help them motivate in the morning when the weather turns cold and wet? I hate driving in the Boston area.
