As of this morning my scale weight is down to 167.4, so that leaves me looking at just 3-4 more pounds. I expect my weight will drop a little more before Sunday’s weekly stats, especially because I’m planning to ride a century tomorrow. Unfortunately, for the first time on this cut, I’m also feeling a little weak this morning, and super hungry. I’m not surprised by this, as I’m nearly five weeks in and I’ve… [Read more]

New 2016 race kit, skinsuit and shoe covers have arrived
A couple days ago I received the cycling kit (bib shorts and race cut jersey), the long-sleeved skinsuit (used for Time Trials) and the shoe covers (also used for Time Trials) for the upcoming 2016 race season. I knew my sizes for the kit and the shoe covers, so I wasn’t worried about those things, but I wasn’t 100% sure about the skinsuit since I’ve never needed one before. For almost all brands I usually… [Read more]

Home stretch; A few thoughts on this cut vs the January cut
My scale weight this morning is 168.2 pounds, and that mean less than 5 pounds remain between me and my current weight goal of 163.x pounds. My body fat percentage (as measured by the 7-point FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat calipers) will probably wind up somewhere between 5-6% when I reach my goal weight. Even though I mention this in my blog every Sunday, I still get questions about the accuracy of body fat calipers…. [Read more]

Product review: DogEars Garmin Mounting Plate
If you own a Garmin cycling computer long enough, chances are good that eventually the thin and insufficient plastic tabs used to secure your expensive Garmin to its mount will break off. Sometimes the tabs sheer off if you’re unfortunate enough to wreck (both of the tabs on my old Garmin Edge 500 were broken off in a mountain bike crash), and sometimes normal use will, over time, cause the tabs to break (this was… [Read more]

Beautiful fall weather over the weekend; Solid solo training rides.
Central Florida was treated to an unseasonably pleasant and cool weekend, and I took full advantage! Morning temperatures were in the low 60s, and remained in the 60s for the entirety of my Saturday and Sunday rides. I believe that these temperatures are about 7° (F) lower than usual for early October. I love riding in groups, but sometimes when I’m in the mood for a hard training ride I prefer to roll solo. No… [Read more]

Fall 2015 cut progress report: Week #4
Week #4 of my Fall 2015 cut is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. METHODS AND MINUTIA: A few words about my body fat test, scale weight and soft tape measurements My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is… [Read more]

Prediction: 2 more weeks
My scale weight this morning dipped down to 168.8 pounds, and that means less than 6 pounds stand between me and my goal of 163.x pounds. My progress on this cut is tracking virtually identically to my January 2015 cut; because of that, it’s not unreasonable to predict that I’m going to wrap this cut up in two weeks (I was 162.4 six weeks into my January cut, same starting weight). I hope that prediction… [Read more]
