I was doing my thing this morning..but I went to the Mall as opposed to getting onto the treadmill. I had some things to bring home from the stores and therefore I just did several things with one trip instead of delaying. While doing the exercises however, I had my music going. I don't know how to tell you how much better it is with the iPod as opposed to the old headphones and FM radio on the nearest rock station...and most of it advertisements. You'd be done by the time the music came back on!!! Anyway, as I was saying before I interrupted myself.. last Christmas 3rd son, among other things gave me Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Chronicles" which has three classic albums in it. They, all three albums are all on the iPod along with other things as well. That particular son can never not choose exactly what I love when it comes to music. He hasn't hit a clinker yet! If he likes it..100 times out of a hundred, I will too.
You would not necessarily think that Lynyrd Skynyrd's music would be THE thing to exercise to but it is!! I had to count footfalls in 60 seconds the other day to gauge how fast I was going and just walking at the time, I was getting 148 footfalls per minute by following the beat of the music selection playing at the time..
3rd will be here in a few hours to pick up some items I saved for him...return the airbed I lent him and have supper before returning to....The Big City!. I'm fixing him tacos.
Think I will search my fellers and see if they are all disbanded..gone from this world...doing something..living next door..whatever. Just searched...found their Fan site and learned that several have passed away due to accidents and illness. But the group is still going, only some different members of course and they are on Tour.
I did the same thing today that I have done the past several days..and had " "Made in the Shade" from "Nuthin' Fancy" playing repeatedly. Oh wow. I LOVE that particular piece almost more than any other. It invariably puts a huge smile on my face as I go along. I suppose those going in the opposite direction are wondering what I am smiling..no...grinning broadly! about. But if you look closely, you'd see the white wires leading to the ear buds and know I am listening to some fab music.
I should have Googled or searched otherwise to see what has happened to them. If they have done anything else..if so, when.
