yes put a duck on it...

My mascot is a duck, he survived the storm, floods and some pretty terrible cycling

What's this IronGasser stuff? You didn't do an Ironman, you did a Challenge event...so shouldn't you be ChallengeGasser, or maybe *Challenged* Gasser

not finished being sponsored actually, Mouldy.... for our next feat we're looking to see if we can break the Hoyt record of 13h43... just finished a local paper interview and still 220 to update

However, I think i need to be a little quicker next time out the stocks and no i'm not fekkin' doing wales before anyone suggests it...

absolutely correct on the gas though! WTF is going on with my body, it's all that nutrition stuff isn't it? Slowly killing me from within

I'm not so sure Frag. I have a mental picture which is combining go-go and Gas, and it's making me feel slightly 

I'm reacquainting myself with the lovely Ms Wellington, and have been on the turbo for the past few evenings. Today I went for a short run and tried one of her Run Faster interval sets for the first time. Really liked it, and it certainly made the (short) time pass more quickly than usual.  I think my running mojo has stopped being in the huff and has finally come back

Good news Nursey, I seem to be able to walk unhindered again so that's a positive! Supposed to riding the crosser tomorrow, she's ready I'm not sure I am but we'll see soon enough

Testing was relatively routine and didn't blow a gasket so that's good news

Been trying to work out what/how to focus on... I've pulled out Relentless Forward Progress to read and perhaps the runner in me might reappear

Ok Gas, listen carefully and pay attention. Please don't make me use my nurse voice. I know you're an Ironlabrat, and will have comittments there, but FFS have a rest

Best put in a plastic bag, Gas, so as not to corrupt the innocent young minds who frequent the thread.

I like the fact he says its a new bike he built - but the photos appear to have been taken in something that's looks suspiciously like a shop ....... mmmmmmm

Wow Raf, you may have a point there.  On closer inspection, I see that the figure in the background adopting the masculine He-Man pose might not be Gas in his well-stocked garage after all.  Must get to Specsavers

 Your right it can't be Gas they arn't wearing a kilt?

15/10/2013 at 13:23

Wales is calling you, Gas .... Wales ... Wales ...

Either that's a mannequin in the photos or Gas is going after Gladys' title!
