I’m a 47 year old former cat. 1 returning to racing. I had my body fat tested at 15% in August. I started trainer rode a few weeks later and got tested a few days ago at 13%! So just by adding in the work (SSB Low Volume) and with no changes in diet, I’ve lost 2% body fat. Amazing! My goal is to be down around 10% when racing starts here in CO in March or April.
Also, I usually feel pretty crappy at 5am and really struggle sometimes to bring the quality to the workouts. I abstain from alcohol and go to bed early the night before but still don’t feel too peppy. Any tips or tricks?
I’m going to start blogging about my return to racing. If you’d like to check it out, here’s where you can find it: ex-prosays.blogspot.com.
