For Me?
Hi all - I wanted to see if anyone had any input on this for me? I am not sure this is for me and have tried searching the forums for someone else with my questions and did not, so hopefully this is not a repeat.

About me - until about 2 months ago I had been pretty happy with my weight. I am a distance cyclist and do 5-8 hours of cardio and 2-3 hours of lower work a week generally. In early July I participated in a cycling event that seems to have led to a downward spiral. It was an 11 hour event, I did ALOT of cardio and also ate to fuel myself. I did not think this would be an issue as I often (5-6 times a year) do 100 mile rides, generally lose a few pounds and then bounce back in a few days.

Well after this event I gained 10 pounds! I had hoped it was water weight but here it is, 2 month later and its still with me. I have not gained anything else food or exercise wise in my routine.

Yesterday I did a scheduled 100 mile ride and gained 3 pounds instead of loosing.

I have no idea what is happening.

I am thinking of adding of strength training to my routine but really dont want to cut down on my cardio.

Could this random, sudden gain be caused by under eating?
