Couch to 5K

'Julie' is still in my head and I have been home ages............8/1 ✔️

No morning run for me today, 😟 feeling tardy I didn't get out until 18:30. 😌

Gear all laid out on chair......waiting....... Upstairs togs on, no pocket again!🤔 iPod nano, tucked into 'shock absorber' "Thank you McF'y" no movement there! And off we jolly well go Laura and me step, step, breathe, breathe. Laura, OK I'll try a little quicker, but then you want me to last all the way so, step, step, breathe,breathe. Steady as we go ..... Who's that then - ah Julie! That's Julie, must remember I met her, I always forget the tunes by the end...

Chapel, long wicker fence, bridges 1,2,3, pretty boat, house with rope fence, old boat, 'da,da Julie........' Where did that come from? 4th bridge, the drove halfway - yea, I'm comfortable 'da di da Julie' wha? Trundle, trundle Laura invites me to put a spurt on...why not, 'da di da Julie' eh! Run, run, run, - walk, brisk of course, 'da di da J......' and there we are, church and home, night Laura, 'da di da'. Shower, supper and relax.......'da di da Julie' still in there! Week eight, run 1 in that little bag, happy me, happy, happy me..........and Julie😱😱😱

Read I don't know how many posts till I realised what you were all on about re Julie! Guess I must block that song out as much as I can... used to look forward to "take a little piece & give a little back" about 7 weeks ago!
