But I have trouble getting moving, and if I don't set out after breakfast it just doesn't happen, I find other things to do (like laundry - bleh!). During the week I could get at least an hour in most days, but I end up sitting in front of the Giro and then getting to work (late).
Now it might just be Giro fever, but it seems to happen each year. Setting goals doesn't help, so what can I do? Any suggestions? Am I just burnt out? Or do I just need a good kick in the pants?

Fresh air in LA?
Try mountain biking or get a singlespeed or perhaps a fixed gear bike! Spice things up look for variation. How about a titanium beach cruiser to go cruising on? Its all good.
For me its the escape from work its what I look forward to.
However when I'm training indoor on my Tacx, i NEED music otherwise I fall asleep.
The Giro helped a little, it reminded me of why I like to ride.
I found that if I pay for a training program (log program and structured workouts) and I have to enter my data on a daily and weekly basis I tend to stick to my training much better.
In the off season, I wasn't using the program and found it really tough to get my butt off the couch and do some work. When I started back on the program It as an easy way to get me motivated. I know each week I have to schedule my workouts and then have to log the hours and data after each workout. I feel guilty if I go a period of time and don't get the data in.
Just a thought! The link is www.trainingbible.com It's designed for runners, cyclists, or triathletes.
If you need any help with set up drop me a PM.
It looks interesting but the only data I have is HR and speed/distance related.
I find I can hear cars even with my music, I ride on roads and not cyclepaths. I have also found music that matches my breathing pattern.
I entered two events (a Century and a Double) that are next month, and I stripped down my Storck. For every ride, I'll "earn" a part back on it. I figure it will be back in one piece a week before the Century. I can also in the meantime go over the parts and see if I can shave any more weight
If nothing else, it will test my mental toughness
