November’s second mantra

ButtercupKid

As always, if you’re male, exchange “he” for “she” and “girl” for boy/man/bloke/lad or whatever. If you want to put the verses you haven’t done yet into future tense, feel free. This one is to the tune of “This Old Man”.

This old girl, she ran one

And she found it lots of fun,

With a nick nack paddy wack,

Take my breath away,

I’m going to run C25k.

This old girl, she ran two,

Even with no fancy shoes,

With a nick nack etc

This old girl, she ran three,

See the throbbing in her knees,

With a nick nack etc

This old girl, she ran four,

Now she’s coming back for more,

With a nick nack etc

This old girl, she ran five,

And she’s feeling so alive,

With a nick nack etc.

Hope it helps ! 😄

Congratulations on that song BCK, I know that tune very well and was singing🎶 along🎊😊

I hope you are enjoying week 2 and don't have to repeat it too many times as you had with week 1.

Going unexpectedly well so far, thanks. As you know, I took nine repeats to get through week 1, and my target is six for week 2, but it’s beginning to look like I might beat that 😀

When I put 3 earlier on BCK. I was in a bit of a hurry as I was having my evening meal, I just meant as you are running so well that I think at the most you will be able to complete all the runs in half the time you hoped to which was originally 6 weeks. 😊

It’s as if something’s trying to stop me doing this....ie my body!! It’s not going to win, this time I only got w1r1 done 😢😢😢. Even if I have to start from the beginning again...I WILL DO THIS!!

I repeated week 1 for nine weeks, because that’s how long it took to achieve it. It doesn’t matter how long it takes - if you keep getting out there, you will get there. We can do this !
