No, I am aware that I cannot do that - I was suffering like hell because I needed to work hard to stay with the pack, and then worked even harder to try and chase back after getting dropped.

Should have stated I've lost 3lbs as well so the power increase isn't quite as high as predicted in your post. 3lbs isn't much, but 185 to 182 is still a difference.

Just waiting for my next TT to...

Thanks for the input.

Ok, I'll go towards the 9mph point where I'm around 300 watts and see how things go. Certainly not doing hills tomorrow, 4000 feet in the baking hot sun today was not fun.

I gained 4lbs over Christmas and went up to 190, back to 187 at the moment though. I have sat at between 184 and 190 for the past 11 months.

Hopefully this year I will break the 180 - after...
