Struggling with the last 10 mins, on came the original long version of American Pie (my son's Old School playlist) well thank you Don McLean! Did you write the book of love and do you believe in God above....for the next 7 minutes or however long it is I positively bounced along! It's the perfect beat to lift my pace off the bottom rung and almost make me skip! (Not a pleasant vision, wobbly skipping, obese tortoise) and then amazingly, just as the beat slowed down at the end, Jo told me how fantastic I am -and how far I've come -that's true anyway, and then as it was time for warm down, on came David Gray's Babylon - perfect for the brisk walk. And I think he's in vogue again isn't he? Anyway, what a serendipitous penultimate run (yeah I'm going to take up big words now I can run) - never to be repeated as the playlist was on Shuffle. Oh well!
One to go! Countdown starts, end within grasp! All of you struggling with the early weeks, you will get here too! Even without pies tortoises and ladders!
