How To Approach an Ultra or Ironman

Jordan Rapp quote sums it up!

This Jordan Rapp quote sums it up.
"It's about the process. It doesn't matter what you do tomorrow and it doesn't matter what you did yesterday. It's about today, and making today count. That's especially true in training, but it's the same mentality that I carry into racing. Focus on the task at hand, not on the finish line, or the next part of the race, but what it is that is right there in front of you in the moment."

This and That

Some stuff that doesn't really fit in anywhere..

(Below) The new Fat Ass Pylon technical shirt is getting lots of comments. I really like it, and Terri had no trouble locating me in the big crowd after The Sporting Life 10k.You can click on it for a close up view of the new logo.Well done, Captain!
(Above)The toenail I lost 2 years ago in the Nipmuck Trail Marathon in Connecticut has almost grown back.
Here's lunch. Lots of good stuff. I try to eat 60%+ fat, around 30% protein, 10% carbs, not counting gels or Gu when I'm running. I think those carbs get used right away, so they don't count.My body never gets a chance to metabolize them into fat. Carbs, especially processed carbs and sugars, are the easiest macro-nutrient for your body to turn into fat (if they are not used up as energy right away).
  Anyhow, that's a home made hamburger patty (no bun!), with mustard,hot peppers, dill pickle,hot sauce and 2 tbsp's of Renee's "Mighty Caesar" salad dressing. Renee's is 14% fat , and has 9 grams of fat and only 1 gram of carbs per tbsp. Perfect for our diet.No sugar!
  The "Tall Boy" has 13 grams of carbs, I can live with that.
Total carbs for lunch? Maybe 20 grams.
