|The face of justified outrage|
Don’t get your hopes up kids, I have neither bought an i-pod doo-dad-thingy, nor have I taken up a hard-core fitness regime.
But when I was watching one of many knitting videocasts this week, I was tickled by the concept of an app which tells you a short story as you walk / jog along, and then suddenly interrupts itself with a shout of “Zombies! Run!”… and you run. Simple, but effective short-burst high-intensity exercise.
Yes, of course it is a stupid idea – that’s the point!
I have been amusing myself by incorporating the concept into my twice-daily dog-walks.
Hero nearly had a heart-attack the first time I tried it: “Zombies! RUUUUUN!”.
And we gave a jogger a hell of a fright as he came round a blind corner towards us… heh heh heh!

But it is fun and it works to get me moving a bit faster.
Did FL join in?
Don’t be daft!
|This far and no further…|
But today was Dexy Day so he had a bit more energy to spare and walked with us as far as the path.
I handed him the lead for a minute so I could leg it down and back up the steps without fear of Hero tripping me up.
His exact expression was “Ye’re feel!” (Translation: You are mad!)
But who is wearing the silly hat, eh?
Yes, my legs DO hurt. Thank you for asking!
