Sapphire exhaled sharply as she reracked the weights. Her muscles were tired, but she was happy. She was covered by a sheen of sweat, like she had just emerged from a pool. Using a towel she wiped her arms and face and glanced in the mirror, giving her arms a flex before heading towards the door.
Her spirits began to drop as she walked further away from the weight room and got closer to the cardio room. While pumping iron left her feeling strong, cardio left her feeling overcome. There was never relief, only a distance counter ticking too slowly.
