Only the 2nd week, and I'm already beating my hour courses by over a minute. The cardio is getting better, but I'm still gaining water weight. I've packed on about 4 pounds already, even though my diet has stayed the same. As soon as my muscle and organ groups are used to the increased metabolism, that weight will go down quickly. One more week of pure cardio, and then I can start making my muscles sore. That means I can start climbing hills harder again too. Right now, I need some extra motivation on the steep parts. Like half-way through on this 9% grade.
