The Weekly Mile: Week 3 (How Do You Run When Your Heart Is Broken?)
Monday, April 30, 2012
It's been coming for a few months now. But I've been in denial about it - trying to draw out the good stuff as long as possible. No time is a good time to break up with someone, but eventually it's only a matter of prolonging the inevitable, which only serves to make the bleed worse when it finally happens.
After a great vacation in Florida from Wednesday to Saturday where I spent time walking, swimming and sunning, I ripped off the relationship bandaid last night with my boyfriend of almost a year. It hurts like hell. And right now the wound is pretty gaping. It's going to take a long time to heal from this one.
Thank god I have running this week to keep me occupied. Although - it's also a lot of hours to think about what I've done while pounding out mile after painful mile.
This isn't a happy training blog today. But it's a blog about moving on. And knowing that I'm doing the absolute BEST thing for myself, regardless of how much it hurts.
