Back in the 160s, vascularity returning; Friday dog video

After my short ride yesterday I weighed in at 168.4 pounds. That post-ride weight was a little lower than my current fasted morning weight, but I’m definitely going to be 169.x, or lower, for my “official” weekly weigh-in on Sunday. It feels great to be back down into the 160s on the scale. My body fat calipers should indicate something in the low 8% range by Sunday (last Sunday I was at 8.8%).

I can’t stand it when my vascularity is diminished. I feel like a potato when I can’t see road maps running up and down my arms and calves. I know, it’s a little vain (I’ll do everyone a favor and kindly sidestep the obvious pun), but I can’t help it. When I’m out on a tough ride and I’m on the rivet, looking down and seeing well-defined muscles working hard and prominent vascularity gives me extra power. I’m not kidding about that. Anyone who says that sports performance is entirely physiological-based is ignorant.

Crappy selfie, er, progress picture taken on Wednesday. I'm not ripped yet, but it's nice to see my vascularity is returning.

At this point in my cut (in the 8% range), every pound I lose until I reach my goal will make a noticeable difference in my definition and vascularity. Because the improvements are so obvious, I really enjoy this stage of a cut. The next 6 or 7 pounds are take me from the above photo, to this one:

Hey, it’s Friday! Here’s another short dog video, which I hope will put a smile on your face. Sonny and Buckley are at it again…
