lackadaisy do

Today was my first day of week 2 in the c25k program and my first day to use a podcast.

The Robert Ullrey session is set to techno-music with (a little too) quiet instructions from Robert at the run/walk transitions.  I felt like I was in a German sci-fi thriller during an extended chase scene.  In my mind’s eye, I was evading post-apocalyptic ne’re-do-wells through the streets of Richmond with my sole companion, a lackadaisical behemoth intent on slowing me down.

Hey, I just realized that the root word of lackadaisical is daisy.  How very apt.

Anyway, the beat was great for getting me going faster, especially during the walking sections.   Daisy was not amused.  She kept giving me a boo-boo-face when I wouldn’t let her stop to check out the abundant leavings of her predecessors.   I need to get an ipod for Daisy in hopes that the techno-beat might speed her up a little.  Now if I can just figure out how to get the earbuds to stay in those floppy mops.
