This week I turned 66. Not a particularly important birthday unless you are three as is my granddaughter. So while I had no plans to do anything special, she could not understand why there wasn't a party. So we quickly scraped together some dinner and had a small party.
A small party that went on for two days.
And trashed my diet. Badly.
The diet component of goal of increasing my power/wt ration 10% was already struggling but now it is seriously behind plan. I need to lose another 8 pounds and I am not very confident.
On the other hand, I finished this rest week with a progress test and increased my critical power 5 watts from the April 1 test. I now only need to increase my CP 7 watts to make goal.
It was a rest week where I cut most of the work by a third. Total training time 10:40, 172 miles, and 4700 Kcal.
One last thought on weight. Losing at least 8 pounds is necessary for more than just hitting a target ratio. If I don't lose that weight before long I will give up on the PAC ride this fall and concentrate on losing the weight.
