And just like that, it’s over.

This should have been my best racing year of my career. I paid for a race a month from January to September. October and Novembers races hadn’t been finalized as I wasn’t sure If I was running the Cape Cod Marathon or if I was doing IM Cozumel.
This would have been followed by 2021 being the year, I would SWAT several Ragnar races so I can be ready for the Immortal in 2023 or 2024 depending on who would be joining me. BUT, my planned timelines are not going to work. Everything will be pushed back by at least a full year if not 2 or more.

As you know, I March, everything shut down because of a global pandemic and all of my races have been cancelled and I have deferred them to the following year. SO, it looks like I will be racing a lot next year. I also have 2 wedding next year. My nephew is getting married mid July and my BFF I getting married the end of September. Two prime training or racing weekends.

While training started out in the right direction at the start of the season, I really found myself not being as motivated to Swim, bike and run as I usually am when there is a race on the calendar. I decided to take my own advice and be gentle with myself. I opted for other activities.

In the next few weeks, I will be posting on the different activities that. I have participated in and how that will affect next years race season.

Have you taken time off this season? Have you tried something new? What have you learned from this season?
We would love to hear from you.
