I’m trying really hard to not be stressed by the ticking clock.

I’m training for a 10K running race which will take place 1 September. When I started training early spring, it seemed like I had AGES to get ready, to get fit, to be able to run more than 200 meters:-).

But time goes really quickly, doesn’t it? All of a sudden I only have about 6 weeks to go and I’m behind schedule….

The last two weeks I’ve been down with a cold and I haven’t been able to run at all, so I’ve lost two weeks of very valuable time. I have no margins left.I mustn’t get another cold!

I’m trying not to get stressed though, mainly by telling myself that it all happens perfectly! (thank you wonderful Susan Jeffers for the best affirmation ever!) Maybe I’m not supposed to have a lot of margins. Maybe I am supposed to feel a little stressed about it, as it might help me keep focused.

More than anything, I am so convinced that I will do this, I will complete the race, even if I won’t be as fit or as ready as I could have been. Life is no “Sliding Doors” film after all, where we can watch the parallell story of what might have happened if we had done something differently. Thank goodness for that. That means it all happens just the way it should, the right way.

I’m relieved:-)
