Rosey
We're the same size...ish
I actually produce more power and swim better at 74kg.
However ideal racing weight is probably 71 ish obviously due to the run, power to weight ratio and fitting in my wet suit!

Your hardly a porker.

As somebody else said around Xmas is probably the heaviest time of year I will aim to stay south of 75 kg and the weight will fall off naturally with longer harder sessions and a sensible diet in the new year.

don't associate weight with fitness...


I hear what you're saying. The reason for setting that goal is that I felt fitter at that weight, looked better(in my mind) and felt better.

so, target the fitness and the things you need to do to accomplish that...your body mass will take care of itself...

Don't really agree with this, just targetting fitness I would always be a few kg above what I could be racing at the very same fitness.

Maryka, can reliably train her 5 minute power likely to its max from training, but it's a lot better if she's 52kg not 54kg, and that weight result is certainly only achieveable with diet variations.

Got it, makes sense. Fuel properly, train well.
