Ironman Virtual Racing Update

As in person races continued to be cancelled for 2020, the IM VR series continues to happen every weekend.

The full distance IM race that I am scheduled for in November does not seem likely and I am ok with that being cancelled.

These virtual races are fun, but at this point I think it has just become another workout for the day as this pandemic continues.

The gym that I use in Covington is now open. It is still pretty empty in there and I feel somewhat comfortable running on the treadmill in the gym. So the last couple of VR Races, I have used the treadmill to make my life a little easier. That might change as virus case counts track, so we will see...

Here is the updated list from VR-9 to the present.

I would like to think that I have made some progress, but to be honest, I don't see it. My times are just becoming very consistent on the bike and the run is just slow.
