After a long and probably needed holiday rest from training, the difficulty getting back into it remains the same. Once we get into training it's almost addictive. How do we get back into the groove?
There is no easy solution. Sometimes, you just have to go out there and get it done. Soon enough you will fall back into the habit of training.
Sometimes the trick is to simply start getting active again. I find that after the holidays playing a bit of pick-up hockey will get the adrenaline flowing and help get me motivated to train hard once again.
