    go it = to go fast, run fast, not to spare yourself.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the following sentences?

    1.1.The couch yelled to the runner not to spare himself.
    1.2.The couch yelled to the runner to go it.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
