230 miles a day, that's one long commute!

Hello G+ my old friend.
On my ride this evening my front gear cable broke so I was stuck in granny gear for the 7 miles home. It was tedious.
Silver lining, means I'll have to disappear to the shed at the weekend to fix it.
Anyway I've always felt that I've had to use a lot of force to get up onto the middle or largest rings, which could explain why it snapped.
It is tiagra on a flat bar, so I push it with my thumb.
Is there anything wrong with the set up, or is this usual?

Recommendations for a Bluetooth heart rate monitor and app please. I want to get a bit more scientific about my training.
I know I could just try harder but I like feedback.
I've looked at the wahoo tickr.

Morning G+,
My bike needs a good clean so looking for recommendations for a cleaning fluid/degreaser and a roll of the big blue "toilet" paper.
I'm not worried about it being bike specific as that just seems to add to the cost.
Thanks in advance

Dear people of G+, can you recommend reasonably priced prescription cycling glasses with interchangeable lenses for different conditions?

I tried the Couch to 5K running program, but struggled with previous knee and ankle injuries. One of my friends said that we weren't designed to run so wasn't surprised I struggled, but I said that we weren't designed to sit on our bums all day putting on weight for 30 years and then try running.
Some interesting ideas in the article.

Is this the best bottle of wine ever?
