Common Core - May 2008


Normally Lola never wakes up early to train, but last Sunday, she got up at about 5 O'clock. She washed her face quickly with cold water and went to the park. She met her friend Matilda and they started jogging for the first time. Every 10 meters they stopped to relax and drink water. A man came up to them and told them, "This is not the way to lose weight! You must run for a longer distance before you rest" Lola said angrily, "You say this because you are not as fat as we are".
