Motivation to ride at night... bleh
So I started a new job this month that leaves only the late afternoon and evenings for riding. This is a huge change from my schedule over the past decade, where I've had mornings free.
I am a morning person, through and through. It is excrutiating for me to get home at 4:30 and run out and ride in the cold dark dusk. But I have to ride... if I want to compete this spring. It's just so hard to get motivated. I also ride alone, on my own place, so I don't have anyone to meet up with "at the barn," other than the horses and a couple of barn kitties.
Any ideas on how to get myself motivated to do this? I sure hope my lack of motivation doesn't continue on through the spring. It could be the end of my serious riding! Ack!
