Wouldn't you know it..

Yesterday was the one day I forget my stupid chainsaw shoulder pads...



Smoked a tree with extreme prejudice. It's currently blackening, more pics as it gets more hideous. Luckily it was a tree not a rock, or I'd probably have broken something. Jury is still out on the innards of the shoulder - there are some bits in there popping that weren't popping when I woke up yesterday morning...

Uploading to Polar Personal Trainer using the Polar Weblink tool for my F6 (thanks Shawn!)

Simple but informative enough...

MAGIC PILLS MAGIC PILLS!

Holy crap

Shawn and I took those magic salt pills. They tasted like the ocean smells. About 15 min into our ride at the nut I felt like I had just got a quickie from an angel. Turned our fastest lap time out there ever.

It's hot. I'm sweating balls. I think I need electrolytes (Brawdo has electrolytes - it's what plants crave)

I'll try both and let you know.


EDIT:

Then there's this. Johnny raced 186 miles in 24 hours on this stuff. Says he was never hungry and never cramped.

Mostly True



Some wasps kill mosquitoes, but generally this is my impression
