Did 6Kms

Woke up at 4.45. Warmed up, stretched, gulped some water, changed and hit the road at 5.10am. Ran for 38 minutes. Twas meant to be 40mins but I decided to make my return journey faster. I did. By 2 mins. Hence 38 mins.
I feel okay. I feel inspired, like I could do this for the rest of my life. Tomorrow I rest. Wednesday I repeat, but maybe do 43minutes. I should then concentrate for the next few moths on how I can cover a greater distance in 45 Minutes.
No hitting the plateau for me. I got weight to lose and distance to cover.
The 6Kms is a conservative approx. Recall that I did 21Kms in 2:02 last year.

Who r u? You start slowly. Baby steps. There was a time 3 years ago I could not run 4Kms.

The motivation is to achieve something - that feeling of achievement boosts my morale and zest for life. I love the challenge running poses - because one is always ever slower than a certain speed, or one always runs a shorter distance than another distance. Plus, the sweat and the exertion makes me feel cleansed and reborn.
