I wanted to share a recent event in December. It was Sunday, I got up and this time it was completely clear to me what I would do today. The situation in Latvia is only deteriorating due to the restrictions imposed. It was decided to close all the shops - that I could still live without and the gyms. Training at that time had become almost a sacred thing. It was almost the only motivation to lift my bottom off the couch and move out of the house. The best moment of every day has been in the gym lately, and the fact that I will be under house arrest now drives me desperate. So today I will definitely use the last opportunity to go to training. I knew another person who would definitely do the same today. After all, I wrote a message to Anna: “I know what you plan to do today. When do we start? ” I also quickly received the answer that she was leaving immediately and that I should also drag myself there. Then I made a quick breakfast, packed my bag, and left.
Upon entering the gym, I immediately noticed Anna warming up on the treadmill. This time it didn't look like it was warming up anymore, but she ran at a pretty fast pace as if she was running away from a maniac or some other life problems. I changed clothes and took the nearest treadmill next to Anna, who was also the only free one in the whole hall. When I got next, Anna's treadmill screen showed activity for 25 minutes, but Anna didn't even try to slow down. I so asked what she was trying to escape from, and she, panting, replied that from everyone. It could be seen that Anna was not in her skin today. And it looked like it wasn't just because of this year's last workout.
We practically spent the rest of the training together. The first time that Anna didn't go anywhere or push me away. This time she even agreed to be my "spotter" or just waited and entertained while I was doing the pushes lying down. During the training, I found out the reason for her dissatisfaction. She has her 25 year birthday in a few days. At first, she wanted to have a big party with all her friends and acquaintances, which of course can't be done. Then she hoped to go to a resort with a spa, enjoy a massage, swim, and drink Bailey’s, which turns out to be her favorite drink. She has also missed this opportunity. She so ironically asked me if I was a miracle worker who could organize it anyway!
All sorts of thoughts began to come in my head that it is possible that something of it can still be fulfilled even now. And this time, I CAN! Given that once Anna left me alone sitting in a restaurant, at that point, I usually wouldn't even want to talk to a girl anymore. And the fact that I was given permission this time also reminds me that I am some court clown, but Anna is the ice queen. However, I do not understand what is happening to me. Anna is the first girl I have the right connection with and I feel the spark in our conversations, but as soon as I move on to something romantic, she brutally rejects me. But at the same time I see, I'm even sure she's still interested in me. Why is she hiding behind such an inaccessible mask? And today we had a really cool workout, during which we always smiled and teased each other! And I also wondered how sad it is for everyone who has birthdays at this time. You may not meet friends, party, or celebrate otherwise. Maybe I can still break this very pretty ice queen and be able to please her on her special day?
Today was the longest workout I have ever had. I spent more than 3 hours in the gym, but Anna even more. But when I got home, I didn't fall into bed but immediately started googling and looking for opportunities to celebrate a birthday. After long research, headache, and several calls, I still found something…
