It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
My Topic today is: What To Do When Your Races Are Cancelled
Another post about the pandemic! Sorry! It’s our New Normal.
1.Just Run for Fun.
No training plan!
Just run whenever you want. Wherever you feel like. And run as many miles as you feel comfortable with and at any PACE. Leave that watch home!!
2.Sign up for a Virtual Race.
There are so many offered.
Many are FREE!!
There are also ones that you pay for and it will support an important charity. They may even send you a shirt and/or medal.
3.Find a New Way to Stay Active.
You had no time before because you were training for a race.
Why not try biking? Spinning? Yoga? Hiking?
4.Explore Locations where you’ve never been.
Again when you were training, you were looking for maybe flat routes and ones that allowed for a certain distance.
Now it is the time to explore places that may never be used for running. Those beautiful trails!!!
5. Stay Positive and Look Ahead. Plan for those Future Races.
Races scheduled for the fall may not work out because there will be so many re-scheduled races lumped together in the same month.
So look ahead to 2021.
** One More.
Just run the races that have been cancelled as “unofficial” virtual races.
You just run the distance on any route you choose. Definitely is not the same but it will give you a sense of accomplishment.
Happy Running! Have you used any of the above? Any other suggestions that you can add about dealing with cancelled races? Please share.
