M1 | Day 13

A shiver ran down my spine as I faced the growled at me and looked fierce as it's blinking red eyes burned into me like red hot coals through snow.

The monster challenged me as if to say I will defeat you... I didn't believe that he could but...I was nervous.

I approached with caution, from the side and when I was sure that he was still looking straight ahead I jumped on his back and held on for dear life. He thrashed around and I pulled and pushed fiercly fighting back and holding on with all my might.

I just kept going coz I knew if I stopped now, I would be defeated. I seemed to be controlling this, this fiendish entity, working like a trojan to subdue it. The sweat dripped off me, running in rivulets down the back of my shirt but I clung on for dear life...somehow I felt deep in my spirit that victory was near.

Suddenly the battle was over almost as quickly as it began. VICTORY was mine. The monster stood cowed in the corner, almost pathetic like in defeat.

I stepped away and moved back to observe this spent force, this, this gargoyle.

The monster at last had stopped moving.

I mentally checked my vital signs. My heart which had been racing was returning to normal.

Oh well, I thought with a 30 minutes of cardio was finished and the exercise bike stood still with puddles of sweat around it.

Adrenalin pumping, I thought..."That was FANTASTIC"
