wt. loss=better/faster on bike???
2 years ago, I was 215lbs, 6'1, not really 'fat' but a little bigger. I got in awesome shape with running, lifting, sometimes swimming, and watching what I eat 90% of the time.
I got down to 170lbs pretty easily, size 30 pants.
I was then able to fly when I ran; my first 5K I got 5th place out of about 200 people. I could run 8 or 9 miles no problem at a really quick pace, maybe around 7:00.
But then I slacked, and returned to 215, doh!
Around this time, I took up Road biking and enjoyed it and struggled with it too. At some charity events, it seemed like everyone was an expert and flew past me.
My question: if I drop the weight again, will this right away make me a lot better cyclist?
Thanks for any stories.
