Workout Log 21 Nov 2012

Our Incomprehensible Maestro continues unable to fully sleep of nights and yet from the depths of his being spinneth a morning performance of the Ninth symphony of Beethoven lasting one hour. For the violent instrumental part of the fourth and last movement our Maestro used, in place of a porcelain baton of Cathay said in that land to be mated with a second for eating, an ivory tipped cane.

Despite the suasions of Messrs Samson and Ajax retained to restrain our Maestro during the most inspiring parts of this inspiring work, suasions primarily verbal, for neither Spirit, tho’ no stranger to rapine, could bring to bear any rancor on our Maestro who daily teaches us his guards the folly of uncheck’d violence, our maestro who did dance as of old his directions, dance being the genius of our nation.

For as is well known, when much younger, the Maestro, having studied the sagacity of Bees (who dance instructions to their mates for finding Honey and Royal Jelly), discovered his BroadBand Theory of Music encoding in which the living human body is imprint, and not a dead score, with far more information than the score can provide either by the Encoder’s sagacity or tutelage by the original authors of the work.

Normally, in their gentlest of restraint of our great spirit his Physician and the hall manager will nod with infinite compassion to Messrs Samson and Achilles who tho’ they were “fleshed villains and mighty dogs” could not but let go of our Maestro who would then impart Promethean protocol to the members of the orchestra, whose faces would light uo to see a dancing Maestro to guide them through the Labyrinth to triumph in the Agora.

Translation: today’s workout was to air-conduct a “performance” first thing of Beethoven’s Ninth symphony. While seated most of the time out of necessity I could not but stand for the noblest bits and then dance my instructions to the orchestra like the Rebbe of the bees. But leg edema was later in the day as bad as it’s been which means that swimming is gold…but probably impossible. Which means that workouts with dance and weights need to be stricly time limited say 20-30 minutes.

  1. Damn, and here I thought I could dance around the room with a Cathy baton and be cured. Damn you Spinoza, you just took away my last hope. You truly are not Obi-wan.
