Kathleen mounted the spinning bike and started her usual rapid breathing. This wasn’t due to any physical exertion but rather part of her warm up; her way to get into the zone. She kept up the almost hyperventilating performance until the music began.
The instant she heard it, she pushed down hard on the pedals, then slowly increasing her pace in time with the music. It was her favourite dance numbers which really would push her, but that was exactly what she needed.
After all, she had to create a lot of electricity to keep her dad’s life support going.
