Working out

Posted: April 22, 2006 in Personal

There were a zillion things on my mind as I walked into the premises of the CRC building. There were so many things to do and I found myself unable to work out my way through the mess. The day was hot and humid. Even the interiors seemed damp today. The CRC is always a busy place at this hour. I got a towel and changed into my sports gear. I started out; walking slowly, looking around to see if I knew anyone around but did not seem to care much. Two long minutes passed by and I started walking fast. I could feel the warmth of my blood rushing into my legs. I started jogging. At only 5.5 mph, I had already begun to feel my rectus femoris and soleus gasping for oxygen. But I continued, knowing very well that my body would comfortably accustom to the rhythm and make up for the deficit. I ran… faster and faster. I was not even looking at the screen in front of me. I could just see the one point where my forefingers alternately reached as I took each step. Each time my shoulders swung around my torso, I could feel the soft cotton of my shirt sticking to my skin right down to my lower back. Sweat trickled freely down my forehead and I immediately wiped it off. I still had a while before I could stop. The incline was even greater now and my thighs burned. I slowed down and then slowed even further. I then felt cool as the sweat dried off. The endorphins had started taking effect and I felt good and calm. It was the most wonderful work-out session I had had. I had covered 3.2 miles on the treadmill and come as many miles away from all the clutter filled up in my mind when I had entered the CRC. When I stopped, I was where I had started but I was ready to take on anything that came my way.

    to pull yourself and start exercising.I missed this after-workout feeling for almost 40 years. – Usha–>
