Will I panic?

Tomorrow I’m riding my bike for the first time in over 6 months. I stopped riding due to getting panic attacks whilst on the bike. I haven’t sorted out the panic attacks yet, but I want to get back out on the bike to prove to myself that it isn’t as scary as my brain perceives it to be.

The more I think about it, the more anxious I’m getting!

It’s annoying as I’m looking forward to actually riding again, but the voices in my head keep screaming that I can’t cope with it and will panic… Causing embarrassment to myself and the mates I’m riding with. 

I now have the whole evening to try and relax (or stress, depending on how my brain deals with it), before riding first thing in the morning.

Will I pull out?

I’ve got my bike ready, clothes organised and nutrition sorted… all I need now is a positive mind set.

Will I have that in the morning? 

 I’ll keep ya posted!

  1. Good luck! Our brains are such fickle things when it comes to anxiety but it sounds like you love biking so I hope you get the chance to go and enjoy it.

  2. I find it helps playing mind games when I’m out training. Especially when I’m riding on my own. I visualise myself riding in a grand tour stage. If your going up a climb, think of riding up part of the Alpe d’Huez or a grand tour climb.

    All the best.
