My compiments for taking the plunge into a lifestyle change. You have jumped in ,geting both feet wet. I too sometimes overtrain, knowing the DOMS is coming, but when I recover, the results seem worth it.
ICM's statement on weight loss is a good theory. One or two pounds a week is safe and people who take this route tend to keep the pounds from returning. Enjoy your new goal in life.
P.S. Did you join the bike club?
