Weight loss during heavy training period?
So, I'm 8 weeks out from this year's first "A" race (Auburn) - and, coincidentally, have exactly 8 pounds to shed to achieve my ideal race weight.

It's tempting to declare one pound a week as my goal.

Last week I did lose a pound, but I was recovering from the flu. My body wasn't screaming for fuel all the time.

Have you tried to lose weight during "heavy" training (15+ hours/week)? How did you do it without compromising your workout fueling/energy/recovery?

or should I just try for 1/2 pound a week...

Dang...usually I give myself till about July to get slim...but it's those climbs at Auburn, those climbs!
