    Hi!

    First thanks for a great forum!

    I should have been to IRONMAN CPH 16 August this year, but it has been postponed to 21 August 2021, like the rest of the races I signed up for, all postponed to 2021! 🙁

    To stay fit and keep the motivation for 2020, I plan to do the following, good idea?!

    1. Follow my original plan until I ends August 2020!
    2. August 2020- march 2021, do the maintenance plan!
    3. Start the IRONMAN training plan (level 2) again in March?

    I assume I can’t move/copy my level 2 plan for 2021 and need to purchase new plan?

    Thanks

    Bo, Denmark

    Bo,

    So sorry to hear about your events! Your initial set of options is amazingly consistent with the document I created, How to Modify Your Training Right Now. Take a look at that document and that may offer you the answers you are looking for.

    But, for your situation, I recommend that you do one of two things:

    1. Yes, continue the plan as normal and perform your own “virtual” race in August.
    or
    2. Set another, shorter goal for August/September like a Marathon or an Olympic virtual race, something that does not require as much time as IM training, but more than just Maintenance training. Maintenance training for the next 11 months is too long, you need something as a goal between now and and then.

    You do not need to buy the plan again, our plans are Lifetime plans.

    Hi David!

    Thanks for reply!

    Yes this COVID-19, turns the world “up-side-down”!

    1. Think I will continue to follow my Ironman plan and make a “virtual” race in August!
    2. Begin with maintenance training September to March or is that to long doing the maintenance plan?
    3. 1 April start with Ironman training again.

    In TraningPeaks “Training library” I only see the COVID-19 maintenance plan I downloaded, but no my Ironman plan? How to copy/add I to April 2021 also?

    Thanks

    Bo

    Bo, I’ve replied to you directly by e-mail to figure this out.
