Training is going well. Lots of comfortably hard efforts, working up the mileage, stressing form and core strength, all the important boring things that happen while building base and prepping for training later in the season.
Couple interesting tracks: Phoenix is a buzz band from France whose horribly titled album, 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' is a pretty good listen.
Metric is another Canadian band whose 2009 album 'Fantasies' was also shortlisted for the Polaris prize. Interestingly, the beat to this song is a perfect 90 cadence. Solid.
