I haven't wanted to write about this because I'm scared of jinxing myself!

I've been running for a couple of months now, slowly building the amount of km's I do per week.

Right now I'm up to 20 or 25kms a week (depending on how many days I'm working)
I've been running 5kms at a time.

I'm thinking of increasing that to 6. I have two more runs to go this week before I'm back at work... If I changed it to 6ms, that would make 27kms for the week!

I still can't believe I'm doing it!

I really can't.

In fact, that's what motivates me...

Every morning when I get dressed for running, I'm filled with this dread that I'm not going to be able to do it.
It's what drives me I guess... I want to prove myself wrong.

And then when I'm on there and doing it, I'm fighting a mental battle. The trick to being able to complete it strongly and successfully is to just take my mind off of it!
Watching a good movie helps.

I've been watching movies with subtitles because when I read from the TV screen, I'm having to use different mental powers so it distracts me from what I'm actually doing. Strange as it sounds, it works...

And what a feeling when I'm done!!! I did it! I always can't believe that I did it....

So should I go for 6kms tomorrow or should I just stay on 5kms? I'm worried I'm going to push myself too soon!

And have I just ruined it all now by writing about it?

I just love that I can do it.

20 hours till my next run!

I honestly don't know how you do it. Running has never been one of those activities that I have enjoyed. In fact, you'll only find me running if I'm playing some sort of sport like basketball. Even if a pack of werewolves were after me and my only escape was to run away, I'd probably shrug my shoulder and yell at them to "Come and get me!" I just that lazy. ; )
