Re: Name that tune

Well, based on Paul's clues I figured it out, but I don't think I should get the win. I looked up the Wikipedia article about music in 1961 and scrolled through the "Top Hits on Record" looking for a band I had not heard of with a song title that sounded like it might contain the lyrics. T...

Re: L4s, etc...the Wolverine(sque) Plan

Thanks Alan! My first L4 since early last year. Don't really know where I stand. My recent 2k was 2:03, but I think it should be closer to 2:00. So that's what I used as a reference pace. Even so, it felt too easy, so I concentrated on hard, even pulls at the assigned stroke rate and let the pace fa...
