27 August – Monday, Monday


With sincere apologies to the Mamas and the Papas…


Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Monday, Monday, so very cool and windy
Monday mornin´, it wasn’t what I hoped it would be
Oh Monday mornin´, Monday mornin´ couldn´t guarantee
That Monday evenin´ my legs would forgive me
Monday, Monday, with my feet of clay
Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday mornin´ you gave me no warnin´ in Royston Vasey
Oh Monday, Monday, that today I would run 11k
Every other day, every other day
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
A-you can find me running all of the time
Monday, Monday, so good to me
Monday mornin´, it was all I hoped it would be
But Monday mornin´, Monday mornin´ couldn´t guarantee
That Monday
Actually, it wasn’t that bad, weather cool and blowy, pace not fast, but nothing ever seems to happen on a Monday run. However, I did get a welcome lift back to the house from our friend J, as I was walking up the Bitch of a Pitch.
