You should do a bodyfat test as well. See what the change there has been.

Nailed it - 144.4 this morning.

Race weight is 146ish so I have a little room to rebound. Build 1 starts next week and I am ready to go!

I was within 4 pounds of goal, and then proceeded to have HomeSlice for lunch and ZTejas happy hour for dinner. It was worth it!!

Down to 165.8 this morning...10 pounds gone in 4 weeks. Must be helping...did my first local TT climb of emigration canyon for the season and was only 11 seconds slower than my personal best last season. Good time for March.

175. Lowest I've been in 2 years. I'm on a diet program now, and about to ramp up my riding (for reals this time). I expect the weight will melt off pretty quickly moving forward. 170lbs would be a good race-weight for me. At least for starters.

Difference is the changes you have made over the last few months have stabilized your body's composition I believe. I am assuming you are happy at that weight?

68.5kg last wednesday and felt weak. Ate a bunch despite having to do a race that goes over a 20m climb twice. Started this week at 68.9kg.

A week of being sick and no exercising, and i'm up to 70.5kg and probably a bit weaker. Got a week in order to get back to high 68-ish for the race next weekend.

I believe that to be true. By the numbers, I am still down on power and about 1kg heavier than last year, but I feel a lot stronger, and my results so far seem to agree with that.

Thank you for all of your help.

No problem. I'm not completely useless as many here would conclude

fark this. will have to toe the goddamn line tomorrow 2kg heavier in a somewhat climb-intensive race. farking cold basically meant i didn't put in any intensity between Sunday and Thursday... at least i'm treating it as a training race, so i'm not too concerned as sunday will be a big training day.

but if the team coach says something about lack of performance or how i'm treating it as a training race or , i may just flip...

As if sitting down with a tablespoon and a jar of Nutella a few nights ago weren't bad enough, now I have to contend with the aftermath of another candy holiday. What's the point in riding for 2.5 hours if I'm just going to pound Cadbury cream eggs as fast as I can de-foil them?

Surely north of 150lb right now.

I've been doing PT exercises and getting the hip back into a better situation. I can do some of the exercises without any concern about technique (in essence, teaching my body how to move without pain); some, I need to hold off on until my hip can do certain things without pain.
