WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ IS SECOND HAND INFO FROM OLYMPIAN QUOTING THE IRON COWBOY.  The Iron Cowboy is famous for doing 50 Ironmans in 50 states in 50 days.  Yesterday he started his new quest...

... 100 Ironmans in 100 days.

On the surface there's nothing to learn, but we don't dwell on the surface.

We like to dive deep into the endurance waters we share with our Iron brothers and sisters.

So, here's the gold:

The first 25 days of the 50-50-50 were really hard.  On about the 26th day it got a lot easier.  It was like my body understood an Ironman a day was the new normal and made the appropriate adjustments.

That make sense, right?

How many of our friends are astounded when they hear we rode 40 or 50 or 100 miles in a day?  

The can't relate.

But we do it. 

Quite easily. 

Our bodies adapt.

Side note -> I skipped my pullups and pushups over the weekend.  The first set yesterday was really hard.  The second easier.  The third easiest.  It's no 50-50-50 Ironmans, but I think this is true of any new habit we are trying to instill.

Kinda makes ya wonder what we might really be capable of...

... could it be we are only scratching the surface... like the saying we only use 10% of our brains?

... how much more can we accomplish?

Fortunately, our lives don't depend on our physical prowess.  Well, most of the time they don't.

Did I ever tell you about the time I came face to face with a large adult mountain lion?

I did everything wrong.

I turned around and rode so fast up the nearest trail to civilization.  I had to skid at the top to make the turn to safety.

Since that encounter, I've taken my best shot at that hill many, many times and never, ever needed to slow down let alone apply the brakes to make that very same turn.

One thing is for sure, to be our very best we've got to be properly fueled.
