Decision being taken 7th April.

I’ve largely jacked in training, but I have a lot of shit going on at the moment.

My other planned race, the Pan Celtic has just been postponed to 2021.

It’s difficult if you still have 2020 events that aren’t postponed / cancelled. I’ve jacked my training in now with the last of my 2020 events being delayed to 2021.  Just going out for rides to get some fresh air and exercise now. I’m saving the turbo for if things change regards outdoor exercise. Turbo is always done on patio so it is technically “outdoors”.
If you don’t make time for exercise now, sooner or later you’ll need to make time for ill health.

Motivation is shot as who knows what to aim for this year...?  ???

My family don't want me out on the road (or MTB) at the moment, just down to the tiny risk of 'an off' that needs medical care.  So, to keep everybody happy I'm on the turbo for the foreseeable.  By mid week I'll have AppleTV so I can make better use of the new Kickr, the wife is mad about the money spent on all this indoor kit but also happy that i'll be less grumpy and not outdoors.

RATN 2021 sounds good...  :'(

I decided to give up training yesterday.  I would like to have carried on but 2 year-old at home with us and wife very busy with work means I have no time.

Last night’s e-mail pretty much clarified things. 

So this years move into ultra racing is dead.  Might be able to do some TTs and audax in the Autumn and then build to 2021. 

I will now have enough annual leave to manage our relocation, though.  I have a feeling that J may not even go back to his current school so we could move early.

I wouldn't be surprised if this event doesn't get pushed to later in the year...

Keep training...

The Dutch government just announced that until June 1 "gatherings"  are not allowed. This bans every organised event, unless it's you and at most two mates. I didn't see the email of the organizers, but this (unsuprisingly) is not happening in May.

No email has been sent yet. I think.

There was one last night, but I’m not sure I should put the contents in here.

I can guess the content: event highly unlikely to take place, update will follow soon?

Along those lines.  Clear reasoning was given, though, and I’m fine with it.
