The last festive mantra

And the first of 2019. To ABBA’s “Happy New Year”. And a very happy and healthy 2019 to you all x

No more champagne

And the fireworks are through,

Here we are, me and you,

And we’ve such a lot to do.

It’s the start of the programme,

And we’re going to reach 5k,

So let’s get underway:

Now’s the time for us to say . . .

Happy New Year,

Happy New Year,

Now we all have a vision and an aim.

It’s of fitness, not of fortune or of fame.

Happy New Year,

Happy New Year,

Here we all have our hopes,

Our will to try;

If we persevere

We know we’ll all get by,

You and I.

Yes, we can see

How the brave new world arrives;

We can see how it thrives

In the changing of our lives.

Oh yes, we will get there,

And we know we’ll be ok,

Dragging on, feet of clay,

Feels a long way from 5k,

Keeping going anyway. . .

Happy New Year. . .

Seems to me now

That the dreams that we all share

Can come true if we try:

We can wave the past goodbye.

Here’s a new kind of future,

One we never thought we’d see;

One where we can be free

From the slobs we used to be.

We can get there, gradually. . .

Happy New Year,

Happy New Year,

Now we all have a vision and an aim.

It’s of fitness, not of fortune or of fame.

Happy New Year,

Happy New Year,

Here we all have our hopes,

Our will to try;

If we persevere

We know we’ll all get by,

You and I xx

Run 1 and 2 of week 6 which have runs and walking intervals have caught out a few runners, be very careful with them and run them slow and steady 🏃 😊 I hope you and your family enjoyed your traditional New year's day steak pie. 😊
