January Mantra

It’s been hard making up anything new while trying to get through the longer runs, but this came to me today. You can exchange “he” for “she” if you like. To the tune of “She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain”:

She’ll be running round the mountain

When she runs,

She’ll be running round the mountain

When she runs,

She’ll be running round the mountain,

Running round the mountain,

Running round the mountain

When she runs.

Singing aye yiy yippee ippee aye,

Singing aye yiy yippee ippee aye,

Singing aye yiy yippee,

She was slow

But now she’s nippy,

Aye yiy yippee ippee aye.

She’ll be wearing Lycra leggings

When she comes. . .

She’ll be wearing shiny trainers

When she comes. . .

She’ll be counting down to 5k

When she comes. . .

Feel free to add more verses - the potential is virtually endless 😄

Hey, I just make them up. You’d all run a lot faster if I was singing behind you 😂

Or possibly blessing him, depending on perspective 😄

Or what week you're on, or how the run is going! Sometimes when he says 'are you ready? Go!', the air has definitely turned blue and not due to the weather!!!!

I’ve tried telling Sanjeev I’m not ready yet but he just doesn’t listen *sigh* 😄

I know!!!! Pushy coaches!!!!

I remember the first week being the worst, with all the 60sec reps 😱

I loved the first week, once I could actually do it. Not sure I’d enjoy it so much now though 😄

I can't wait to start running around the (prairie) mountain in the summer 😊

Better than having to run up it 😄

Oh I’ll be hiking up it and running down and around it 😁
