Day 349.71 as portmanteau
You will no doubt quickly see through the smoke and mirrors of this camera obscura to find the term known as a portmanteau.
With my favorite portmanteau being the one that your humble servant created while in the endorphin fueled state of anaerobic intoxication.
Having nothing to do with wine, my port is the most sober and staid synergy of the two elements crucial in the achievement of our health and fitness goals, as pursued by our indoor training.
The word is technitude.
One part technique and one part attitude.
We need to bring as much 'good and proper form' to our exercise as possible, this being the technique part of the word with equal parts attitude, a condition that should go without additional verbiage.
You put these two together and you are on to something. A legitimate portmanteau if ever there was one.
Like edutainment. Or like moving into a new space as farrago of karma and opportunity.
