comment What's so bad about losing more than 2lbs/wk
So if I'm eating between 1500-2300 healthy calories a day and working out for about 45-60minutes 5-6 times a week in Zone 3 with additional weight training, should I be concerned if I've dropped more than 2lbs a week on average? I'm presuming things will level off eventualy as fitness increases and body weight decreases. Been going hard all summer and lost about 20lbs (5'8 @ 260lb now 240lb) in 7-8 weeks and aside from some having hungry days I feel great. I was aiming for a 2lb/wk loss but it's coming off faster than expected. I've lost about 8 inches off the waist in same time frame.

@alesplin - when you say "leveled out" do you mean you still have pain but no additional pain or its reducing?

comment Recovering from trochanteric (hip) bursitis
Same issues a few years back when I was training for my first TriA. Runs started fine but afterwards hip got stiff and sore.Thought it was tweaked muscles.Sports Doctor sent me for a bone scan of my hip.Scan showed I had the start of a compression fracture (more of a bruised bone as it didn't actually break or crack) on the tibia ball. Was told to stop impact workouts for 8 weeks and then start back slow. I changed my workouts to heavy bike/eliptical/swim and included aqua jogging. I didn't loose that much running fitness because of it. Might want to get a 2nd opinion if it doesn't go away.
