Light dimmed, but still on my face. With squinted eyes my limbs are bent and pulled at odd angles.
“Relax”, They say.
Right…..with muscles crunched and bones out of place. When it aches to sit and aches to stretch.
When all I want is to feel the bar in my fist and the weight burning my arms.
So I wait. I stretch and visit and follow the orders.
Feet together and swung through the air.
“Hopefully, just 5 more visits, and no running!”
I know they mean well, so I smile and obey.
But I miss the feeling of sweat and the gratification of gaining my strength.
I like the constant and stress reliever.
I keep my routine, and read instead.
Hopefully soon They will respond…
