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!
