Cardio Kink

My new cardio amalgamation was designed to get me moving faster, harder, stronger.  It is a playlist that was conceived on a stationary bike...and came to term on the elliptical.  By the time my workout was over...I had a new baby to listen to at the gym.

But why is it kinky?  I hear you ask.  

No, you don't have to don a PVC catsuit and masque before you listen to it, though that would be nice.  In fact, the explanation is so prosaic...I almost don't want to talk about it.  While making my latest cardio playlist, and sweating all over myself (seriously, even my arms sweat...and then that sweat forms a gully down the underside and runs down to my wrists where it finally drips to the floor...unless I'm fast enough to catch it with my towel, but most of the time I'm just concentrating on staying on whatever machine I'm on)...I may have accidentally added every Kinks song on my MP3 player to the melange.  Woops.

See?  Boring.  

“It is only by way of pain one arrives at pleasure” - Marquis de Sade.

Decidedly, not boring.

And so, if I'm going to take pleasure in this new and fabulously painful regime, I'm going to need some listening pleasure...let's get kinky.
