Morning all,

yay for Mousey PBs, non whingy feet for Meldy, top running for Seren, Debbo and Hope.

Debbo, Nickelback are a rock/metal band from Canada- I was trying to think of a Canadian musician(s) who wasn't Bryan Adams and they were the first to pop into my head.

I binned swimming last night when the lane became too busy, a very speedy bunch claimed the fast lane, so the displaced not so speedy had the temerity to use my medium lane.  Just under an hour so relatively content.  Scales at the leisure centre confirmed so I think I'll need to switch to alcohol as treat rather than regular weeknight drinkies.

FeFe - April Lavine is also Canadian and, I believe, has just married lead singer of Nickelback.

I think Alanis Morrisette is also Canadian

The group Rush are canadian aren't they.

 My manflu had better go by tomorrow .have a busy day day today...........had manflu 2 weeks ago............never normally suffer..........i am blaming the swimming pool..........

my return to park run racing in the morning is not going to produce a pretty result

Rush are indeed Canadian, but don't make it to the top 20 of this particular site:

I think there might be some objections from North of the Border for them claiming Alexander Graham Bell as a Canuck.

Happy New Year Mr Z.

Hmmm I think you've all done well listing Canadian musicians I can't stand

what about Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and the various Wainrights?

I thought the Wainrights were in the Lakes

I swam before work - main set 1600 in 28.58, job done

I have no niggles from yesterdays run so I shall incorporate some of the same into tomorrows escapades

I had a feeling Sheryl Crow was a Canadian too ?

04/01/2013 at 19:42

Blimey Meldy, you is a fish, innit.

Sheryl Crow is American, but I had to check as I was on the verge of proposing her as a possible earlier.

Debbo, I'll allow Neil Young for his guitar playing but he has to promise not to sing (far too whiny for my taste).  I'm vaguely aware of Mr Cohen but I don't think I've ever listened to one of his albums straight through.  Big tick for Ms Mitchell.

manflu felt better when exercising.............shouldn't really have gone with raised HR but the chance to have a bike ride in company in the dry somewhere differnt was too good to miss...........maybe racing the park run first of all wasn't too good.............average hr on the run 171.............average HR on the bike 160...not what fink ordered.

Nice training and flu beating folks.

Today was a rest day for me which felt very VERY strange for a Saturday. I haven't decided if I miss Ironman training or not yet. 

There appears to be a 45 minute swim on my programme for Monday 

That'll be a bloody big shock to the system I'll tell you that!

It all seems to be going well so far except I'm running a bit too fast for the time I'm looking for, which is all very well at this stage but means the wheels are likely to fall off later. I can run faster than my goal pace and slower than my goal pace, but I just can't seem to hit it and maintain it. It's just going to take practice I know.

Flashers on run routes don't help the mission. I didn't half inject some speed yesterday!

Yeah hopefully ... keeping it simple and steady !

I ordered a new Garmin soft strap thingy that arrived today, it was a lot cheaper than most on the market that I have seen so I was thinking it could be dodgy but it all looks ok

I am now shoe shopping in the sales
