I think it's easy to obsess about weight. Whilst obviously you don't want to balloon, racing where you feel comfortable and confident in your racing is more important. Just keep it sensible and don't stress it
Basically there's always a point every year I think about weight. Finding out Josh W is 60kg instigated that this year.
I generally find feeling awake and good is best, and when I feel tired and naff a good scran sorts this out.
I'm 72~ as well if it helps and we're about the same height! Power to weight is more important, long as you're feeling strong you'll be running well. Stop worrying about other people because you can't change That, you're training well so just keep grafting and results will come
I was beating you last year at 80+ baba. Granted wasdale*
But you'll smash me atm
I'll split the difference with you if you want? Could do with the extra power! Clearly doing no harm over the races that matter.
Lab meeting cookies and cakes, disappearing down me neck like a magic trick!
Climbing atm is probably down to not getting enough in since the Marathon - though I am comparing myself to Jebby here! I fared better against Adam, which was good.
Tell Craig he can do one if he thinks you're a big lad.
I used to race Rhodri/Hector et al with 20+kg disadvantage. Didn't stop me beating them sometimes. Although, I do think I could have been a lot lighter, it would have been grim and you don't know where the safety line is before your body becomes too delicate. maybe if you compensate for the weight loss by doing more conditioning it's ok? **bullshit pondering, I'm taking no credit if you break yourself dieting**
Big guys can't win long lakeland races?
Let me introduce you to a certain Mr. Schofield....
Also, compare yourself to him. You're not big
