Way back when I lived in Muncie, I played marches through my earbuds to try to keep me on pace and I walked the neighborhood and took exercise (sometimes).
Augustus Rex is a walker. He needs several outdoor stretches each day. And I am walking him on a leash.
Sousa marches are too fast, clocking in quite often at around ♩= 120 beats per minutes. That comes in at two steps per second, which is a bit rapid for Auggie and quite too much for me.
So I go instead with parade marches, such as the “Colonel Bogey March” and other British quadruple meter marches. These come in a ♩= 90, a much better pace for both of us.
I’m loading tons of these British marches into the iPhone, and enjoying some marching music with the mutt.
