running nyc

saturday recovery

saturday

After taking a rest day yesterday - after several days of some intense running, feeling worn down, sore body, maybe even coming down with something, was tough to take the day off from running on a day near 70 degrees, but it was right thing to do - felt better today, though legs still a little sore and the weather some 40 degrees colder than yesterday, went out for a very easy paced 12 mile recovery run this evening in a windy park.  A nice relaxing run, might jump in a 5k race in the morning to use as a workout, depending on what the body tells me.  

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
