Over the past two months due to the stress of teenager drama, selling a house, trying to find a new house, etc, I’ve gained back some weight from my “race weight” for my A race at the end of February. Trainer time hasn’t been quality time, but I’ve still managed to get in about 2 rides a week so I feel my general “Fitness” has remained good, and I’ve lost about ~.10w/kg from where I was. It’s about 6lbs gained back and the Nokia + scale says thats about 2% fat(went from 15-17%) which isnt surprising given the poor diet choices involved.
Obviously like in this thread here I’m trying not to stress about this, but its really hard not to. I dont really know what I’m looking for here. Maybe just some words of encouragement about to not worry about it(which I know is also silly given how many threads here and the guys on the podcast say it).
But I also thought it might be a good discussion about how much .10w/kg matters. Why does the jump up feel so amazing, but the slide back suddenly makes you feel like you lost everything?
