Okay, I am an Athena and not a clydesdale. I am 80 lbs overweight and losing. I have lost 20 lbs so far. I average 13.4 mph on generally flat terrain and have increased from 8.5mph, 6 months, 20 lbs and couch potato status ago. Since my speed and distance increases can be directly correlated to me just training like mad, I am not sure how fast my speeds will increase with additional weight loss.
My endurance is very good, as I just did 159 miles this weekend. So, I am "in shape" perhaps very good shape, but I am VERY slow, especially on any hills. I am basically passed like I am standing still, and I push hard. Dragging 80 extra lbs up a hill isn't easy.
Who out there has lost weight from being about 100 lbs overweight and has tracked their speeds? Just curious as to what I have to look forward to.
