I’m all in for next year with three IMs and three 70.3s on the schedule.

Hopefully, science has figured something out by next May.

Well either you will have your hands full training and racing or telling us how racing won't happen in 2021 :)

Next races on the schedule: lolwut?

I have a half and a full on the calendar (Blue Ridge and Maryland) and both are short drives which should limit the risk due to travel. Worst case they get pushed back a year and I am already paid for. I expect races to be on though but travel may get dicey so wouldn't sign up for an international race

Only Planning to race once all this is done.

Hopefully we can see some improvements Spring 2021 but I`m not planning to do anything.

But honestly, I think 2021 will be similar to 2020.

Hopefully the Ironman Brand can survive that.

I’m confident (-ish) that modern science will cut us a break next year.

There was zero chance of that happening this year.

Not responding to you directly but the entire thread in general......I am surprised it hasn't been mentioned that all current registration for next years races have a no questions asked deferral offer if you register for the race in a specified period of time. For Mont Tremblant for example if you register before December 20th you are eligible for deferral and can defer up until July 8th.

I saw that and jumped on it as I wanted to race Mont Tremblant all along in 2021 but figured I can re-evaluate things in terms of CV-19 (and if I can even cross the border) in the July time frame. I don't recall Ironman ever offering a no questions ask deferral policy like this before.

Yeah, I don’t feel like there is much to lose other than giving IM an interest free loan.

Races are all selling out quickly. Pick a race you might want to do and make a decision 2-3 months out.

I’m doing what Dev suggests earlier in the thread. Going to build a good solid base on about 8-10 hours with some higher intensity work and then with 3 months to go decide if I want to do the IM volume build or focus on shorter distances.

I’m signed up for Chatty 70.3 in May and IMLP in July.

Ben's been my coach since meeting him randomly post Kona in Honolulu in 2014. He was just on holiday and we recognised him in a surf store. My friend knew I was done with my coach and asked 'do you coach?' 'This is my passion' was his reply in the French accent sounded rather cool and I hired him on the spot. I flew to France and did two Kona training blocks the following two years with him in Bordeaux and we would swim across the lake at Hourtin the 3.8km race course. I was supposed to do the XXL as a goal race this year in May. My flights were booked and I was excited to race in front of Ben for only the second time until Covid but will definitely get back there. Fingers crossed this shit ends soon enough but personally I can't see it so I am committing to nothing too far from home having already lost out...


Here's the plug to his race series ;)

Look at the bright side, if you had put that 600 in investments, it might now only be worth 400.... :)

Haha....its an "investment" in keeping us motivated to train vs an investment in something like Carnival Cruise lines or United Airlines or Coca Cola stock (it actually baffles me how something so non essential to human life can have a market cap of $212 billion while poisoning the world with excess sugar other than mile 13 of an Ironman....but that's another topic)

Could have put it towards bills. If I acted quicker I would've done a chargeback. I'm no legal expert, but holding onto someone's money for that long should not be legal. You live and learn...local events for me from now on, they at least have morals.
