April 2020 Update

Over four weeks into the lock down and still no end in sight.  The running calendar is effectively on hold and there is speculation that there may not even be any racing in 2020.  Whilst not being able to race is a minor gripe in the grand scheme of things, the hardest thing is the not knowing when we may return to some semblance of normality. Its interesting to see how other people are approaching being in 'limbo'.  Some are taking a well earned break from running altogether, others are taking it as an opportunity to sort out a niggle or two, some are pulling back into tick over or base phase, whilst a few others continue as normal.  For me, I've taken the latter path which probably goes against the consensus somewhat, but then again I've never been one for sticking to convention.  My premise is that I lost a lot of time from early January to mid-February so I have already had an enforced break and to continue in tick-over mode isn't really achieving anything.  T
