The Workout

Journal Free Writing
Laying on the floor
Abs are tensed
The muscles are on fire
Hundred reps feel like an hour
Sweat rolling off my body
Abs, chest and biceps glistening
The more crunches I do,
The more the feeling builds
Somewhere between excruciating pain
And absolute ecstasy
Feeling of accomplishment with every new rep
Ignoring my body’s resistance to movement
Overcoming my mental limits for this type of pain
Pressing forward towards my goal
I must accomplish this
For myself I must persist
Through all of the sweat, tears, pain and even blood
I am the only one who can accomplish this goal for me
