I’m suspect your fail would be a win for many. I’ve always found power tests too demoralizing, even scaled for age & gender. Even slow rides are hard right now - my asthma has been playing up & I barely budged the spirometer todayAgreed, my power numbers would have been seen as a win for some people out there. As for comparison’s sake I only really judge my performance against my previous performance. Sometimes it’s neat to see what others can do but the real goal is to improve upon myself so their numbers are simply interesting to see.

Focus on good fuel - not starving yourself. Your weight is your weight.
This is something I’ve been struggling with myself. I’ve gained a few pounds during my little off season and it has been bothering me that I can’t shed it as quickly as I’d like. Even though I know that I’m still at a healthy weight and the only reason to lose it is to race up hills faster I still feel miserable when I don’t stick to my daily allowance. So I’ve been trying to convince myself not to fret over it, it’s TT season and stressing won’t do me any good anyways.
