That's the current reality.
It's affected all of us in one capacity or another. Unfortunately, no one is exempt.
As runners, many of us have had road races cancelled or postponed, leaving us in limbo for the next couple months. A lot of time and energy have been spent, all in preparation for these events that now may (or may not) happen in the foreseeable future.
What's a runner to do?
Well, it's not the end of the world, and all is not lost. Actually, there are many options to consider in the wake of this turn of events...
First of all, you don't need to let all that training go to waste. Even if your event has been outright cancelled, there will be another race when things get back to normal (hopefully sooner than later). For now, consider scaling back the mileage a notch...and treat this period as an early taper. If and when your event gets rescheduled, or another event is on the roster (that has not been affected), you won't need to start over with your training.
