Posted by Lieutenant Junior Grade Kusinut “Ember” Sutalo (Chief Of Security) in Side Sim: Practice Makes Perfect (Open to all)
Being cooped up in a small office for several hours a day, is no way to ensure to healthiness of a young body and mind, such as Ember’s. She found herself growing restless, when all she had to do was PaDDs upon PaDDs of work-related paperwork and whatnot. In effort to keep herself moving, she often resorted to bouncing one or both of her legs, even tapping the fingers of her free hand, silently against the table. These were signed of ADD, however it was hardly that. She merely grew restless after remaining in a single position for so long, and had to find a way to keep her body from falling asleep on her, thus, movement seemed the best idea.
Finally, she had a day where she didn’t have to work until the later hours. Taking advantage of her time off, the Secuirty Officer slipped on a black tanktop and yoga pants, sliding a bottle of water under her arm with a yoga mat, to head down towards the gym. Upon arrival, she allowed her gaze to study the room, watching the life as people moved about, chatting to others while they deadlifted or going solo, in any exercise they saw fit. The gym was her home, somewhere where she could exercise as much as she wanted, which always made her feel instantly better, after the release of toxins and endorphins.
Pulling her mat from beneath her arm, she set the bottle down, tugging at the edges of the rubber-based cushion, slipping it from its curled position. Adjusting the mat upon the floor, she removed her shoes and socks, stepping on to the mat, which was situated far from the remainder of the people, as not to disturb anyone. Hardly wishing to seem unapproachable, she kept her music off, as if saying anyone was welcome to talk to her. Stepping to the top of the pad, she began at mountain pose before going through sun salutation, the serene movements already beginning to relax her stiffened and tight muscles.
After having a light breakfast, Tera had taken her usual walk of the ship. She didn’t have any appointments till after lunch but, rarely, did she ever find herself in a gym. This was a habit she needed to change desperately.
She watched the various people in their activities, trying to figure out what might be best for her. Seeing Ember on a yoga mat, she stood a respectful distance away and watched with interest.
“I’ve always wanted to learn that.” she said attempting to make conversation.
