    I know you found the triathlon thread but to answer your question, I am feeling burned out. I have done a couple Ironman races, a few half IM's plus a lot of running. I am racing Calgary 70.3 on Sunday but then I am done for the rest of the year and am taking the next couple of years off from anything longer than an olympic. Mostly plan on doing a lot of riding of my gravel bike and hiking/backpacking for a bit plus get back on my motorcycle!

    Yeah I have been mostly gravel riding this year, but have found I just enjoy running.. Anytime I get on a bike I always feel the need to get faster, buy more gear, increase my ftp, etc.... I just like the financial freedom and ease of running and get back on the MC
